Kirk, "Aka Ben & Papaw," loved his children and grandchildren and always enjoyed spending time with his family. He was known for his great brilliance and charisma. As well as the wisdom and love he poured into his family. He enjoyed telling stories of his time he served in the Army and his love for the Almighty Heavenly Father. He always had a "noogie noogie" ready for you and a joyful chuckle right after. He was thrilled to be able to teach the game of chess to each one of his grandchildren. For they brought him much delight and he made sure they always knew it. He always challenged and applied himself to the fullest. After retiring, he succeeded in obtaining higher education and pursuing his bachelors in Psychology, with honors and was named to dean's list.
He loved studying about Ancient Egypt and collected its artifacts and decor, which he proudly showcased in his library.
Ben especially will be remembered for his wittiness and jolly soul. He will be missed dearly by family and friends.
