Ira was born January 23, 1946, to Jessie Lee and Ovie Louetta Kirby in Quanah, TX. He married Linda Joyce Russell in Brownfield on April 13, 1970, and they had 42 years together before she passed away in 2012. Ira is described by his family as a “stubborn ol’ man with a heart of gold!” He was known for his generosity – if you needed it, he’d give you the shirt off his back or his last dollar. Ira was preceded in death by his wife, Linda Joyce; 2 daughters, Suzanne D. Kirby and Lynda Spann, and his parents.
He is survived by 2 sons, Ricky Kirby of Lubbock and Gregg Kirby and wife Tessa of Snyder; 2 daughters, Christi Fennell and husband Brian of Buda and Amanda Kirby of Brownfield; 11 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren.
