  • Kirk was one of those rare individuals you come across in life. A true professional artist and just and all around Great Guy. See ya on the other side Kirk.

  • I am so sorry for your loss. He just recently Repaired a ring for my daughter and advised me to go elsewhere for business on another job that cost me less when he could have done the job for exhorbitantly more money. He didn’t have to do that. RIP

  • He was very kind when I went into his shop to ask a question. I’m very sorry he’s gone.

  • Kirk was truly one of the nicest guys ever. He worked all of my jewelry when I lived in Eureka and especially on a ring that had been mangled in my garbage disposal and he restored it to perfection. I don’t believe I ever saw him without a smile on his face…. he was always happy, calm, at peace. R. I. P. Kirk, you are already missed.

    Like everyone else, I am so very sorry to hear this. He was a kind and creative man, and did a lot of work for me at Eagle’s Perch, and then personally. Today, I’m wearing a beautiful necklace and earring set he made for me and thinking of him. Condolences to his family, friends and store partner, Steve.

  • I remember him when he was working at the pawn shop, he was polite and professional, RIP Kirk.

  • The first time I met him was when I worked at I believe Arbys at the mall. He was always very nice. Saw him a few times at the jewelry store.

  • Oh! I loved Kirk! He made my first custom belly button ring 20 years ago, and I had to send it back to him to fix because only he could do it right. My sympathies to his family and loved one.

  • Sad news. I first met Kirk when he was the on site jeweler at Allure Jewelers in Old Town. Nice guy, funny and always seemed to be in a good mood. Would run into him every now and then at the Speak Easy. He will be missed, condolences to his family and friends

  • Kirk was a regular of mine during my 10 years working at Roys Club. It’s been over 7 years since. I was thrilled to bring my ring into his shop recently. He was a very sweet guy. My prayers are with his family.

  • I once stopped by his Shop to ask a question about a tricky clasp on my watch. He spent a solid twenty five minutes pondering a fix. He ask If I could leave it for a day. Came back the next day.,,.,., fixed! He ask me about my watch and told him the story how my mother had bought it for me for a retirement gift and that it meant a lot to me. He smiled and said the work was on the house!
