The world has not been blessed with many people that were as kind as Kirby. He was quick witted, loved to talk with anyone, sharing smiles and laughs. He was the king of jokes and trivia.
Kirby loved anything in the outdoors and was the best shot in a family of shooters. Mechanically gifted, he spent many years as a master machinist, across the country and internationally. He was a gifted guitarist.
He was deeply loved by many and will be greatly missed.
He is survived by his six wonderful children, Mari, Brianna, Myra (Matt), Kendric, Logan, Wilson and two incredible grand children. He is also survived by his ex-wife, Kari, his mother and father, Lois and Kent, his brothers, Jesse (Danielle), Kody (Amber), Tim (Juletta), brother-in-law, Max Jiron, grandmother Starshine and numerous aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his sister, Katie, paternal grandparents (Ken and Jeanette Gilge), and maternal grandfather (Robert Stockton).
Later this year, there will be an upcoming celebration of life in Havre, Montana.
