Robert Jay "Kirk" Kirkpatrick






This information on Robert Jay "Kirk" Kirkpatrick was furnished to me by his friend Jay Larson. Kirk was as good a shipmate as you could ever hope to be around. He was patient, listened to you, and gave out valuable advice. He served aboard the SS Sinclair Rubilene, SS Charles N McGroarty, the SS Mobil Fuel and the SS Dashing Wave. He has been a cattle rancher, and along with his Brother Ray, was in the commercial fishing business in and around the San Francisco area. Bob Kirkpatrick passed away due to massive heart congestion in April 2003. If you knew him send an email to R V Lebkowsky at email address LEBKO@LEBKO.NET. He will be happy to hear from you.
