Dale Kirby, 59, met Jesus on Sunday, August 2, 2020. We celebrated his life on Monday, August 10, 2020, in a private gathering with family and close friends.
Dale Henry Kirby was born on November 13, 1960, to William and Betty Kirby in Kansas City, Kansas. He attended Washington High School where he played basketball, baseball and tennis. He was also an active member of the ecology club and went on multiple backpacking trips which he really enjoyed.

Dale started his career at Hallmark working in many different financial capacities for many years. The second half of his career was spent as CFO for AB May.
Dale was a devoted husband and father who was very involved in the local church and on the Kansas City Christian School Board. He was very active in coaching his 3 sons in their various sports teams through the years. Dale was a faithful friend to many, a fun-loving manager, and always had a sly sense of humor. He loved his family deeply and cared for them with tender loving kindness. He believed in them and supported them in everything they did. Dale’s favorite bible verses are from Numbers 6:24-26 which are words of blessing and he would faithfully pray this blessing over his 3 sons and wife daily.
Dale will be missed greatly by his wife Amie Kirby and his 3 sons-Andrew, Christian and Ian, his 2 daughter-in-law’s -Shannon and Jane, and his 2 grandson’s- Wesley and Lenny. He will also be missed by his mother Betty Kirby and is older brother Allen, his wife Laura, and their 3 children.
