Kirt was the only child of his father's second marriage, and his mother's only child. He was raised as the much younger brother of the first family. His high school yearbook said of him "few were his words, but wonderfully clear", a well chosen quote. His mother's Methodist faith stayed with him all his 94 years. Kirt was drafted into WW2, where he served as supply in the Army Air Corp, some of the time as chaplain's assistant in Europe. He was a Sgt at the end of the war. After VE day, transportation of the troops required a long wait, and Kirt and his unit were in Grafenburg, Germany. He made friends there who remained friends for generations.

Kirt returned to Bennington and became reacquainted with Barbara Morgan, who he had known from high school. By then, Barbara was starting her career as an English teacher. They married in 1947. Kirt used his GI bill to improve his business education, and became a time motion study man in industry in Bennington. On the day their first child was born, in 1952, EZ Mills voted to close the Bennington Mill and move to Cartersville GA. Kirt helped to close the mill in Bennington, but did not follow them to the deep south. He and Barbara decided to have Kirt accept a position in Pennsylvania, where they would live for the rest of their lives.

They had three children, and five grandchildren. Kirt remained in the textile industry, as a data base analyst. He and Barbara enjoyed a long retirement, and travel all over the world. They were married 67 years at her death, Kirt lived two years longer, sustained by his faith. He was a wonderful husband and father. Adams-21565 13:05, 4 June 2019 (UTC)
