He had a law practice in Hurley Wisconsin for many years, was an Administrative Law Judge for the county courts and did pro bono work as a public defender.  In his later years he did real estate development.

He was a dedicated father and husband.  He enjoyed reading, politics, and was a ski instructor. He was a hobby farmer with a yearly vegetable garden, raising pigs and various small animals and loved planting and harvesting his fruit trees. 

Kirk, you have gone before us yet we know we will meet again - you will watch over us and be our guardian angel - gone but never forgotten.
