With deepest sorrow, we announce that Kirk Christopher Puryear, Jr., 20, our beloved son, brother, uncle, family member and friend, passed away on Sunday, June 5, 2022, while in the hospital. Those who knew Kip, even just a little, lost a shining light in their lives.
Kip had so much love and goodness, so much capacity to bring happiness to others, and such a bright future in his plans. His foremost passion was his faith in Christ. The world is a lesser place without Kip and he will be missed every day by all who knew him.

We know he is now with his brother, Christopher; grandfathers, Edgar Puryear and William Canaday, Sr.; grandmother, Faye Radcliffe, and is loved here on earth as well heaven.
