He was born May 31, 1924, in Clinton County, Ohio son of the late James Edward Kirk and Mary Kirk. He was the youngest of 4 siblings and the last to go. His siblings were Lionel Kirk, Mildred Seaman, and Edward Dale Kirk (Rose Kirk). He was also preceded in death by his wife, Barbara Kirk, grandchildren Tanner Kirk, Brittany Kirk, and great grandchild Abram Nance.

Robert was a proud World War II veteran who served on the USS Piedmont. After the war, he came back to Bowersville, Ohio. He then started a career at NCR in Dayton, Ohio as a Tool and Die Maker. He was at NCR for over 32 years. After that he moved to Highland County, where he continued to work for himself up until a few years ago. He was a proud member of the Highland County Senior Citizens Center, VFW, and American Legion until his wife Barb, passed away.

He is survived by two sons, Robert T. Kirk Jr, (Jacque Kirk, dec), & Linda Kirk, of Xenia and James Kirk of Wilmington.

He has said that a highlight for him and, “one for the ages” was the night he was recognized as the Hometown Hero at the Wilmington Varsity Football game on September 1, 2023, and his Honor Flight Trip. He loved everyone from the Honor Flight group, especially Kelly and her son.

He wanted everyone to know, “I have lived a really good life!”
