Latrelle, I'm so sorry to hear of Kirby's passing. I have fond memories of watching "The Creature From the Black Lagoon" in 3D with you two and my exhubby Sammy at your Lodge West apartment. Then for the 4th of July, taking 2man rafts out to a small island in Lake Murray, putting up some pup tents and cooking some big steaks before celebrating with some fireworks. You two were so much fun. I hated that we lost track of each other after Sammy and I divorced. Many prayers of peace and comfort to you and your girls. 🙏❤🙏

As a fellow classmate and Class of 1973 Irmo graduate, I was saddened to learn of Kirby's passing. Along with Mark Estes, Dick Weir, and many other fellow classmates "Pack"man played with on the Irmo High Football Team, Kirby created many happy memories for us. He was a great athlete - and a very funny dude! He continued his football career at Furman. I was a long distance runner at Irmo and a successful walk-on runner at Clemson during Kirby's time at Furman, and we kept up with each other. Every single time I saw Kirby over the years, we talked conservative politics with each other, and he followed me as I progressed in public service from councilman and Mayor of Irmo to serving in the SC House to my nomination by President Trump and confirmation US Senate (twice) to serve as a Commissioner on the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission today. I can't say I knew of a bigger fan of Rush Limbaugh than Kirby was, either! I will pray for Peace and Comfort for the Pack Family, as I also celebrate knowing that Kirby is safe and well in Heaven right now.

Latrelle, Taylor and Katie, we are deeply sorry for your loss. We hold you all in our hearts. I appreciate the times Kirby would pass by in his truck while I was out walking or working in the yard and stop to say hello and have a short chat. I always enjoyed talking with him. I will miss these times. Again, you are in our hearts. Gary and Kathy White
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I met Kirby my freshmen year at Furman. Kirby was a senior. By the 2nd day of two a days I learned who Kirby was. He was playing defensive end. I played fullback. We met eyes to eyes as Kirby lifted me off the ground and body slammed me on the wet grass. My eyeballs looked like Rodney Dangerfield’s, pool ball size. He said I’m Kirby. Lying parallel on the ground I looked at him and said I think I’m Johnny Blue. He laughed, helped me up. We had connected. I had some great times with Kirby. Every time I hear the song Don’t Fear The Reaper by Blue Oyster Cult I think of Kirby and the good times we had. That was our favorite song. Everybody liked Kirby. He always had a smile and a gentle kind spirit except on the football team. He was a great player, tough as nails. I have always wanted to see him one more time. As life goes we all drift off into our own worlds. As I watched the video with tears I was so proud of who he became. A loving husband, father and grandfather. That right there is the most important thing in this life. So many kids today grow up without a daddy. How blessed you were. More importantly than that is knowing Jesus. Kirby knew him. The greatest man who ever walked this earth with unfailing love and eyes full of kindness. He said, I am the way, the truth and life. He who believes in me will receive forgiveness and the assurance of eternal life in heaven. Kirby is free now. My life is better having known Kirby Pack. I’ll see him again day. Love you Kirby

Our thoughts and prayers are with Kirby’s family. Every memory that I have of Kirby was an adventure that I will treasure. He was a great friend and I will miss him.
David L. Thomas left a message on July 29, 2021:
Kirby was one of those "special" people you always treasure knowing. I got to talk to him almost weekly over a few years. He would visit with me after Sunday School quite often and he always had a positive way about him that made you want to engage with him. His smile, his insights, his good natured and relaxed way of communicating made knowing him a real pleasure. I haven't seen Kirby in many years but quite often I'd think of him and the "Pack ladies" and miss them all. His loss is a loss for anyone who knew him as anyone who had the pleasure and honor of knowing him can attest.

We are so sad to hear about your loss. We have good, happy memories of Kirby. He seemed larger than life, I think because he enjoyed life and everyone he met. The obituary did a great job of showing his love and energy. Love The Atwoods

Kirby was a one of a kind special friend going back to our days of playing football together at Irmo and being together at Furman. He always made a point to stay in touch through the years. Clair and I always enjoyed our times together with he and Latrelle especially early on in our marriages while they still lived in Columbia. His personality was as big as his heart and will live on no doubt in his daughters and granddaughter. Latrelle, he never failed to speak of you with the respect and love he carried for you. Gone too soon...we wanted more. But we are honored and better for having known him as we did! Godspeed Kirby until we meet again. Love you buddy!!

Condolences and heartfelt sympathy go out to Kirby's Family - he and I went to Irmo High School together. May he rest in peace.
Connie Bolton left a message on July 29, 2021:
Kirby was a football hero at Irmo High School and we graduated together in 1973. He was in home room with me. He was also a neighbor. His brother, Clayton Pack was married to my sister so we share a niece in Nancy Pack Kennedy. I will remember him fondly forever. We pray God brings comfort and peace to his family. May God bless each one of you!

Latrelle,, Taylor & Katie, We are so sorry for your loss. We have know Kirby for close to 30 years and he will be sorely missed by everyone who knew him. He never met a stranger and always left you with a good feeling. Working with him was an experience I will never forget, the stories he told of growing up and all the adventures he had been a part of, always willing to bend an ear to anyone who needed someone to talk to and just being there as a friend. We will continue to keep you all in our thoughts and prayers and know that with our peace in our salvation we will once again see him again. Love, Tim & Amanda
