Kirk was born in New Orleans, LA and was a longtime resident of St. Bernard Parish where he enjoyed spending time with friends and family, sharing in his many pastimes of fishing, cooking, dancing, gardening, listening to music, riding his motorcycle, loving his pets & animals and occasionally aggravating us until he laughed. Kirk’s passing is a reminder that each day is a blessing and an opportunity to create lasting memories. Although we will miss his warm smile, laughter and great sense of humor every day, he will forever remain in our hearts.
