It is with great sadness that on October 9, 2018, Kirk Black, son, brother and uncle, died at the age of 59 years at his home in Calgary, Alberta. Kirk, the third of four children, was born to Charles and Rena Black in Maidstone, Saskatchewan on January 1, 1959.
Kirk was as an avid sports fan and a multi-talented builder. Kirk enjoyed hunting with his dad. He lived resourcefully, wanting for little, and maintaining unwavering optimism throughout his life. “Kirkles” was generous, honest and a loyal friend to all who knew him. He is sadly missed but happily remembered with a cheery smile perpetually on his face.
Kirk is survived by his mom Rena, siblings Don and Shelley. Nieces and nephews Duncan (Erin), Denise, Cameron, Paynton, and Ryon. Greats Claire and Sullivan.
Kirk was predeceased by his father Charles Black (2010) and his sister Carrie Ringland (2014).
The family wishes to thank Glenn McCaw and staff at McCaw Funeral Service for all their loving support.
Kirk’s family will hold a private service at a later date.
Donations in memory of Kirk may be made to Calgary Alpha House, Calgary Dream Center or to a charity of donor's choice.
