Kirk was a special kid. No, I mean SPECIAL! When he was a young teenager he took care of his parents yard and property like a professional landscaper. He was focused and what every parent would want their child to be. Kirk raised pigeons and the responsibility he displayed towards them was inspirational. He even got one of the younger kids in the neighborhood started in the hobby. He was a quiet guy and tolerated a lot that few others ever would. The one time I did seem him retaliate against someone who wouldn't leave him alone all the parents in the neighborhood understood his frustration and supported Kirk. He was a one of a kind kind of guy and I was lucky to have grown up with him.
Prayers and condolences to his family.
