Steven Ray Kirby 1956-2021
On April 9th, 2021 Steven Ray Kirby, known as Steve, lost his battle with cancer, but won his place with the Lord. Steve was born in Dallas, Texas on Sept 6th, 1956 to Zelma Fay Brown and Jesse James Kirby. Steve has joined his beloved “Daddy”, James L. Parks, as well as his Father, Jessie James Kirby, Mother, Zelma Fay Brown, and many others in heaven. He leaves behind his loving wife Belinda T. Kirby and their two Children , Steven L. Kirby and Krystal M. Kirby, with their grandchildren Shyanne, Shayla, Jasmine, Brandon, Krew and Josiah and great grandchildren as well as Angela Powell, mother to Kyle, Kory, Kyra, and Koby and their children. He has also left behind his older Brother, James “Jimmy” Kirby as well as four sisters, Cathy, Karen, Carolyn and Callie who share the same father. He has left behind his Uncle David and Aunt Diane Lambert and other Aunts and Uncles, many Cousins and many others whom he dearly loved. He also had a gift and a passion for dogs, and leaves behind his Dobermans, Thumper and Bambi. Steve had the honor of being a parent, grandparent and great grandparent while here on this earth. He died at the young age of 64 and had succumbed to Cancer. He fought long and hard and endured great pain in the name of those he loved because this is the type of man he was. He was once told his left hand was stronger than most men’s right. He will always remain in our hearts. Our “Superman” always and forever. Steve served his country proudly in the Navy and served in the Vietnam war aboard several ships as a diesel/engine mechanic, fireman among other things and could work on and fix almost anything, even by simply listening to the sound of it. His infinite wisdom in this way would leave people in awe and made him the go to man to call for almost any job. Steve loved to ride his Harley, go fishing and hunting and be outdoors. Steve retired from Lockheed Martin in 2012 as an Aircraft Mechanic. Steve was known for his strong and willful nature and lack of filter, but those who knew him best saw a fierce and loving heart that had a passion for helping others, with no desire for recognition. He could make a friend of anyone and always had something to say. He would often be found having conversations with complete strangers. He will be greatly missed and has left a giant void in the hearts of those who loved him most. May he now and forever Rest In Peace in the loving arms of our Father who has made him whole again. And may we all find peace on earth without him until we meet again.
