Kenneth Kirlin All Obituaries


Kenneth Leroy Kirlin of Marion, passed away at age 62, on Dec. 5, 2020. He had battled many health issues in his life, but has now peacefully reunited with his parents, Kathy and Leroy Kirlin, as well as his little brother, Randy.
He will be intensely missed by his longtime best friend and partner, Anna Oliver; her daughter, Marcy (Mark) Heald, daughter Allyson and grandson, Ryan; as well as his sisters, Bonnie (Steve) Madson and Ronda (Craig) Frye; nieces, nephews and aunts and uncles, including his special aunt Donna.
Kenny was a friendly, good-hearted soul who could be counted on for a smile and an upbeat word (or 200!) for anyone he met. As a child, he had an intense passion for cars that he would never outgrow and which led him to make many local dealership friends, who he loved to visit often!
There will be no service at this time. Memorials may be directed to Anna Oliver.
