Curtis Kirk Memorial Gathering

Above graphic borrowed from The Buckhorn Saloon website

Our friend, fellow business owner and active community member, Curtis Kirk, passed away 2 weeks ago on August 1st. His life and business partner of 25 years, Alice, is a strong and capable woman and she is holding up well as far as we have heard, but I am sure she could use, and would greatly appreciate the support of our small town community at this difficult time in her life.

Curtis’s heart was bigger than the sky, and we will miss being welcomed at the Buckhorn by the tall lanky man with the cowboy hat. Always a smile on his face. Curtis was a generous and caring citizen of our little town of North Fork. We will miss him. He will always be a part of North Fork and the Buckhorn.

Our hearts are with you Alice. Your community is here for you.

Alice is holding a memorial potluck for Curtis on Saturday August 23rd starting at Noon. For more information about this or The Buckhorn Saloon in general, please visit The Buckhorn Saloon Website.

Alice seems to be doing well, she has a lot of support from her friends.It's good to see a smile on her face.

We all visited the Buckhorn for their famous prime rib dinner last Friday evening. Scrumptious as always, the service was great, and Alice could be seen buzzing around being cook, boss, and welcomer.

She's a very strong and resilient woman. Rest well Curtis, Alice is doing just fine.

Do you or anyone know if a memorial is planned for the anniversary of my father's passing? Unfortunately, we were never informed of anything and so we don't the status of any rememberance ceremony. Thank you in advance for any information you might have.

Hi Kirk Family,
Unfortunately, we don't have any further information about any future memorial or remembrance ceremony for Curtis. Perhaps one of our local blog readers has more information that they are willing to share.
