Kirk was interested and very content fixing and tinkering with machines. He later enrolled in an electrical course with RETS. All his life, Kirk had a love for music. He pursued this love by joining several bands as their self-taught keyboardist. His mom’s house became the mecca for regular band practice. Kirk played in clubs and halls around Baltimore. He was a happy, outgoing and spiritual person with a wide circle of friends. Years later, Kirk moved to Harrisburg, PA, to pursue life in a new environment. There, he met and married his beloved wife Gail.
