Edward Victor Kirk

April 25, 1925May 12, 2020

On May 12, 2020 Edward Kirk passed away peacefully at his Heritage Estates residence.

He was born in Prescott, Arizona on April 25, 1925 along with his twin sister, Edwina, to Victor and Grace Kirk. After serving during WW II, he was honorably discharged from the US Navy. He then attended Nursing School at Newman Memorial Hospital Emporia, KS and graduated with his RN degree in September, 1947. While in nursing school, Ed met his soul mate and partner of over 71 years, Jean Kirk. Ed continued his education at Creighton University and received his Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist certification. After graduation, he and Jean moved to Scottsbluff, NE and was employed by Regional West Medical Center, Department of Anesthesia for over 35 years.

Edward and Jean Kirk were married in Lost Springs, KS on August 8, 1947. To this union two children were born: Douglas V. and Cynthia L. Kirk.

He is survived by his children: Doug Kirk (Faye) of Fort Collins, CO and Cindy Misner (Tim) of Gering, NE; three grandchildren: Shawn Misner (Lisa), Oklahoma City, OK, Brooke Dollarhide (Jeremy), Gering, NE, and Sarah Kirk, Fort Collins, CO; and three great grandchildren: Jaxson and Gracie Misner and Dyson Dollarhide.

Edward was preceded in death by his wife and parents.

Ed was constantly involved in a never ending sequence of projects; never letting grass grow under his feet. He was a kind and generous man; always willing to lend a hand to anyone in need. He liked camping/fishing expeditions, the cabin at Lake Minatare, travel, golf, being around family, morning coffee with his buddies, and overall enjoyed people and life. He will be missed by his family and friends.

A memorial service will be Thursday, May 28th at 2:00pm at Dugan-Kramer Funeral Chapel. This service will be available remotely for livestreaming through Dugan-Kramer’s Facebook page.

Dear Cindy and Doug, We are so sorry to read about the death of your Dad. He was one of our favorite people, along with your Mom. Tom has great childhood memories of them both and when I moved to town in 1973, I was the beneficiary of lots of fun nights at the Elks Club and many New Year’s Days of football/ food fun. They both live on in you as well as your children and those great memories will become treasures for you.
God’s peace and comfort to you all. Hugs. 🙏💔😥

We were saddened to hear of Ed’s passing. I had so many years of working with Ed at the hospital. He was the Chief CRNA when I arrived as a new anesthetist in 1975! He and Jean had so many great gatherings with great memories created for all. Ed and your mom will always hold a special spot in our memories. Our deepest sympathies are sent to your family.

Cindy and I have been friends for a very long time and I remember going to the lake her parents were usually there. We had the best food to eat and Mr. Kirk was always very nice. I would just like to send my condolences. My prayers are with Cindy and Tim and families.
