Kirk, you will never be forgotten here because the legacy you left behind is your precious wife and three beautiful young adults.
We were new to Traverse City and moved here to watch our oldest grandson go thru high school -and enjoy sharing the ups and downs of raising a family with our daughter and her family. Your oldest son kalvas was one of the gifts of life that some miss- I can still see his smile and how he took my grandson under “his wing” showing him how to play, work and enjoy the game of soccer. That was your spirit Kurt. I never said Thank you- Thank You. Your families support and love thru the next 4 years was constant and true. Senior year - had you stretching
..., encouraging and mentoring young men to lead. I thank God for people like you when ever I meet them- thank you Kurt and thank you Linda, Kalvis, Lars and Kaija for sharing your Dad! Till we all meet again- Cheers -to a life well lived and shared- thank you
& God bless you Linda, Kalvis, Lars and Kaija! I expect amazing things out of you three children.
God’s Love

Dear Hornburg skiers-
Your dad brought tremendous positive energy, enthusiasm and a warm smile to every high school ski race. We are so grateful.

This is a picture of the first time we met Kirk. It was at Kalvis and Corinne’s graduation picnic. After the festivities we all met at the Sheraton Commander for drinks to get to know each other better and celebrate our children and their accomplishments. I remember we were all together and Kirk started telling stories. One by one people stopped their conversations and gravitated over to listen to what Kirk had to say. I remember thinking he is one charismatic, gregarious, full of life soul!! I also remember that big BEAR hug. Not everyone knows how to give a hug like that! His presence was large and will be missed by all who knew him. PROST to Kirk and his life and the wonderful, beautif...ul family he left behind!Read more

Dear Hornburg Family,

We are so very saddened by Kirk's death. Our deepest sympathy to you all.

There is no doubt, his family was the most important thing in his life, evident in his stories of adventures you shared together.

I treasure time spent with you all on the ski hill, starting at Hickory Hills when Molly & Lars where in elementary school, Kirk helping me get my little ones up the tow rope....to high school and USSA weekend racing. Always encouraging, and kind towards others. It was fun being in his presence. Kirk never complained about the cold, or being tired or sore, he was on the hill or mountain all day, helping the kids to be their very best self. He lead by example, his
... laugh was contagious and he made people feel good about themselves. " Captain Kirk " was respected and admired by us all.

Our hearts hurt for your tremendous loss. We are grateful to have known Kirk, and will cherish the memories. Praying for your strength and courage to face each day without your beloved husband and father. May God's promise of eternal life bring you comfort.

With Love ~

Kalvis and Family, I offer my deepest condolences. I remember meeting your dad, Kalvis, at Harvard and thinking how much you reminded me of him. He was a very warm and gregarious person. Very caring. It is these traits he passed on to you and you will put to good use as a physician. Please know you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. May you find strength in the hard days ahead. Know you are loved and cared for and never hesitate to ask for help or a hug.
