Jeffrey E. Kirwin, formerly of Deerfield Beach, Florida and current resident of Simpsonville, South Carolina, passed away on April 15, 2021 at the age of 67.
Jeff was born in Miami, Florida to John William Kirwin “Chief” and Marilyn Anderson Kirwin. He is survived by his son, Jonathan Andrew Kirwin; his son’s mother, Sherry DuBose; his brother, John Hollis Kirwin and wife, Jo; his nephew, Kyle Kirwin; and his niece, Kristin Jenkins and husband, Keith.
Jeff had a rewarding football career at Western Carolina University where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree. Throughout his life, he continued to be a proud supporter of the Catamounts and enjoyed lifelong friendships with many of his teammates.
After 40 years of service, Jeff retired from his very successful career as a sales manager with BellSouth (AT&T). He loved to lead meetings with a humorous anecdote and will always be remembered for his storytelling.
Jeff was a caring brother, a loyal and dependable friend, and a thoughtful and loving father to his son. He was happiest when he was spending time with Jonathan either fishing, golfing, playing the guitar, or enjoying one of their daily conversations, and he never missed a holiday, birthday party, piano recital, or sporting event.
Jeff will be remembered for his outgoing personality, his dedication to his family, friends, and career and his undying love for his son. He was dearly loved and will be deeply missed.
