Dwight M. Kirk, age 73, of Mount Gilead, passed away Thursday morning, February 27, 2020, at Woodside Village Care Center.

On September 18, 1946, Dwight was born in Middletown, Ohio, the only child of the late Dwight Sherman and Ruth Ann (Maun) Kirk.  He graduated from Mount Gilead High School in the Class of 1964.  He then furthered his education at Miami University, receiving a Bachelor’s in Marketing in 1968.

A Vietnam Veteran, Dwight proudly served his country in the U.S. Army.

For many years, Dwight worked for his father and then ran Kirk’s Drive-In in Mount Gilead.

Dwight was a big Ohio State fan and really enjoyed working as a “Redcoat” at Ohio State sporting events.

Dwight will be dearly missed by his two children: Mike Kirk of Mount Gilead and Debbie (Paul) Mills of Granville.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his grandson, Clinton Mills.

Dwight’s family will greet friends from 4 – 7 p.m. on Thursday, March 5, 2020, at the Snyder Funeral Homes, Craven Chapel, 67 N. Main St., Mount Gilead.  Private family graveside services will be held at a later date.

  • My condolences to the family. I have fond memories of Dwight as a thespian in one of our high school productions. Also years later, my first realization of how small our world is, occurred when I ran into him at the Washington D.C. Airport. He was in the Army at the time.
