Kirby was born on Saturday, December 30, 1978, to Katherine (Seeney) and Kirby Cummings, Sr. and was a lifelong resident of Southeast Texas.  He was known for his optimistic personality, hard-headedness, and sense of humor that could make anyone laugh.  Kirby had a deep love for his family and always enjoyed spending time with them and telling classic family stories.  He was also loved animals; especially his Boxer, Baby Girl.  Sundays were an important day for Kirby; NASCAR could always be found on the TV and Kirby could not wait to watch No. 88, Dale Earnhardt Jr., and No. 10, Danica Patrick, on the racetrack.  Kirby was a husband, father, son, brother, and friend, who was loved by many.

Preceding Kirby in death is his brother, Chad Cummings.

Those who will cherish Kirby’s memory most is his loving wife, Leah Cummings; parents, Katherine and Kirby Cummings; daughter, Lacey Matlock; sons, Michael Matlock and Samuel Bradburry; sister, Heather Lee and husband, Jason; and many members of extended family, and friends.
