Obituary for Eddie W. Kirby

Eddie Washington Kirby, Sr. was born on August 18, 1948 to James Kirby and Doshia Coglin Kirby in Hazlehurst, Georgia. He departed his life on June 5, 2018 at the Vitas Healthcare in Stockbridge, Georgia. He attended the Hazlehurst Elementary and High School in Hazlehurst, Georgia. He married Margaret Kirby on December 4, 1971.

He was employed by Colonial Baker from 1969-1975; employed by the Atlanta Public School System from 1970-2002; and by the Atlanta Area Tech where he retired in 2002.

Eddie was the true meaning of love. He adored his family and friends unconditionally. He loved Bowling, Traveling, Casino Time Playing cards, and playing in his garden.

Eddie had a smile that would brighten up any dark room. His goal was to make people smile and if he could get a smile out of you, then his day was well worth it. He loved to dance and I tell you he had the moves that no one could duplicate. He loved to take pictures and capture the perfect moments. He didn’t believe in strangers because everyone was his family.

Preceding him in death is his parents; a son Todrick Kirby; his siblings: James Kirby, Marvin Kirby, Willie Mae Monford, Willie Otis Kirby, and Mason Collis Kirby.

He leaves to cherish precious memories: his wife, Margaret Kirby; three children: Eddie Washington Kirby, Jr. “Little Eddie”, Jermaine Kirby, and Patrick Kirby. Grandchildren: Shannon Kirby, Shakira Kirby, and Patrick Kirby, Jr.; Siblings: Mattie Jo Collins, Virginia Kirby, Linzo (Sylvia) Kirby, all of Atlanta, Ga; a sisterin-law, Dorothy Kirby, other relatives and friends also survive.
