Obituary for Brennan David Kirby

"I L-O-V-E You!" Brennan's standard conversation starter! He used it with everyone, people he knew and even those he didn't! For most of us, that's a bit of a forward way to start a conversation, but Brennan knew how to pull it off! The sincerity of his words instantly connected you to him forever.
Brennan David Kirby was born in Lexington, KY on July 3, 2003 to his anxious and adoring parents, Raymond David and Janie Lear Kirby. From the beginning, Brennan was special. He was born with a very rare condition that required lots of medical intervention and assistance, but he NEVER let those limitations define him. Brennan knew he was special and he greatly enjoyed it! He knew better than anyone that the pure love, joy and light that lived inside of him was strong enough to melt even the coldest of hearts.
Brennan used his sparkling blue eyes, crooked smile and warm sunshine-filled hugs to win over everyone he met. One look; one smile; one hug and that was it! You were hooked on Brennan. He was like a drug you could never get enough of. He loved people and people loved him!
Brennan is survived by his devoted parents, Ray and Janie Kirby; his brothers, Isaiah and Kellan; his sisters, Kyleigh and McKenzie; his paternal grandparents, Raymond and Rita Darlene Kirby; his maternal grandfather, Terry Lear; and great grandmother, Beulah Lear. Brennan is also survived by his Aunt Debbie (Jeff) Bruderle; Uncles Jason, Justin, and Randall Lear; and a host of great aunts and uncles, cousins, friends, and the entire Roundstone Elementary, Rockcastle Middle School, and Southern Madison Youth sports community. He was preceded in death by his Aunt Terina Hubbard and Great Uncle Eddie Delaney.
Brennan fought hard for years to overcome the physical impairments and life-threatening condition that he was born with. Through the endless love and constant support of his parents, the excellent care provided by the doctors and staff associated with the University of Kentucky Children's Hospital and Shriner's Hospital for Children, and the absolute devotion and commitment to his care from our local community, Brennan lived a full and active life for 15 amazing years.
After a short illness and a life fully lived, Brennan David Kirby departed this world on December 21, 2018 in the arms of his mom and dad. He leaves behind a model of unconditional love, joy, acceptance, strength, and courage that can only be surpassed by our Lord Jesus Christ.
There is no doubt that upon his arrival to the pearly gates of heaven, his first sentence was "I L-O-V-E You Jesus!"
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in honor of Brennan to the Shriner's Hospital for Children, the University of Kentucky Children's Hospital, Cloves, or any local Foster Care/Adoption agency.
The funeral and interment ceremony will be a private family event. A community-wide Celebration of Life will be held on Thursday, December 27 from 5:00 to 9:00 PM at the Roundstone Elementary School. Everyone that knew Brennan and would like to celebrate his life with us is invited and encouraged to attend. The event is very informal and will be a time to share stories of this special boy and visit with all those touched by him.
