A great man that enjoyed hearing and telling good stories, helping others in need and talking about his family. He loved serving the community as a Board Volunteer at YMCA Southcoast and a mentor to many (including me). You will be truly missed but the legacy you left will carry on through each one of us that had the opportunity to spend time with you.

We have so many wonderful memories of Kirk and of course Judith, the love of his life. Kirk enjoyed cycling and invited me to join him during the winter mountain biking season, what a hoot. He was always a fun loving guy, biking, on the water, at a party. We admired his community service, particularly his support of The SouthCoast YMCA.

I only new Captain Kirk for a short time through a very close friend of mine Tom Manley. We biked together for approximately four months and he would talk to me while riding about life and how you must live life to the fullest every day. He also took me on a 50 mile bike ride and said follow me kid let the Captain show you how it is done. I said to him I have never rode 50 miles before this would be me first time, and I was not sure that I could do it. Captain Kirk carried me the whole ride like it was nothing 50 miles. What a great guy, I will never forget him. May you Rest In Peace.

Dear Coykendal Family, Kirk will be missed by so many for his kindness, smile, love of life and love of his family. I loved his endeavors that he managed to do with his fortitude and strength. He had many accomplishments in his life but the most important was being the kind gentleman that he was. We are fortunate that we had him in our lives. With love, Knute & Jan
