Jake Kirby Memorial Fund

There are no words to describe the loss. John “Jake” Kirby lost his life in a terrible accident on November 27th. He leaves behind an incredible family including his three children, Tyler, Katie and Spencer, pictured with John above.

For those of you that knew John, would count him among one of the most amazing fathers anyone could ask for. Right now, the shock of what the family is going through has left a ton of unanswered questions and a financial burden no one could anticipate.

We have set up this fund to help the Kirby family pay for expenses related to both John’s funeral and frankly to help keep the family stable as Spencer is still a Junior at Chaparral High School.

The family appreciates all the support that has been given by the community and the kind words, thoughts and prayers. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
