Kirk William Haspel, “Cowboy Kirk,” 64, went out with his boots on December 31, 2020 in Eloy, Arizona. Born in Port Jefferson, NY on June 30, 1956 to William and Margaret Haspel, Kirk attended Sachem High School and moved to Arizona in the late spring of 1978.
Kirk is survived by his children Savannah and Cody; and two grandchildren. As well as his two brothers, Gary and Brad, and sister Cheryl.
Kirk was selfless and kind hearted, always helping a friend or animal in need. He had a deep love for dogs and horses, devoting his life to animal rescue and making a 40-year career as a horseshoer. He enjoyed being by the water, loved to sing and was passionate about health and fitness. In the evenings you could find him with a good cigar, sipping a glass of tequila and watching his favorite movie Tombstone.
Friends and family are invited to join a Celebration of Life gathering at 10:00 AM on Tuesday, January 12, 2021 at Gilbert Memorial Park, 2100 East Queen Creek Road, Gilbert AZ 85297.
