David Aught Kirby, 70, of Bixby, OK, was born in Nashville, TN on May 30, 1951, and peacefully went to be with Jesus on December 28, 2021.

He expressed his passionate love of others in his work as a pastor, college educator, and mental healthcare professional. His love of learning led him to earn two Master's degrees from Northeastern State University.
