Michael Thomas Kirk, Sr., Lt. Col, USAF (Ret.) Obituary

Michael Thomas Kirk, Sr., Lt. Col, USAF (Ret.) entered into paradise on Tuesday, March 1, 2022. He was 75 years old. Born to the late Harry Thomas “Sonny” and Dorothy Jean “Dot” Baker Kirk, Mike was born in Lawrenceburg, Tennessee. With an intelligent mind, he earned two Master Degrees in the fields of Psychology and Computer Resource Information Management. Mike also received an Undergraduate Degree in Zoology and completed numerous commercial certifications. Dedicated to his country, Mike served in the United States Air Force as a Navigator on the F-4 Phantoms. After nearly 23 years of service, he retired with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. Following the military, Mike became a Senior Security Engineer for Credence. A comedian at heart, Mike was humorous and a joy to be around. He was a lifelong member of the Church of Christ and served as an Elder and a Song Leader. Mike truly had a lovely voice! A wonderful “Big Papa,” he gave the best heartfelt hugs. His family will miss his hugs and said, “We LuLoo Dad!” His memory will be forever cherished by his wife of 53 years, Miriam Jane Duncan Kirk of Georgia; children, Michael Thomas “Tommy” Kirk Jr. (Kristi) of Alabama and Amanda Jane “Mandy” Holloway (Jerrad) of Georgia; grandchildren, Duncan Thomas Kirk Holloway and Cana Jane Holloway; siblings, Anthony Wayne “Tony” Kirk (Debbie) of Tennessee; Karen Kirk Fozard (Gregg) of Illinois; and several nieces and nephews. A celebration of life will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 5, 2022, at the Warner Robins Church of Christ. A time of fellowship will follow immediately after the service.
