Owner & Funeral Director,
J.C. Kirby & Son Funeral Chapels and Crematory
Kevin R. Kirby was born and raised in Bowling Green, Kentucky. He is the son of J.C & Ernestine Kirby. He is the third of six children. At the young age of seven Kevin would follow his father, J.C., to work knowing at such an early age he wanted to follow in his father’s footsteps to become a licensed funeral director and embalmer. He graduated from Bowling Green High School in 1974 and then went onto mortuary school. He graduated from the Kentucky School of Mortuary Science in Louisville in 1979 and the same day of graduation he drove with his wife, Lynn, back to Bowling Green to begin work that day. Kevin and Lynn bought the funeral home from J.C. in 1986 and embarked upon an ambitious remodeling project to the existing Broadway Avenue chapel and eventually expanded by opening the Lovers Lane chapel and cemetery in 1997 to serve the growing area of Warren County. He and his wife continue to work and strive to meet the needs of the families they serve with hope, dedication, and care.
