James M. Kirby, Jr. Of Morningside on Sunday, April 10, 2022, age 81. Beloved father of Nora M. Ramirez and the late Daniel P. Kirby; grandfather of Adam Ramirez; brother of Bill Kirby (Kathy) and the late Regis (Dolores), Kathleen, Timothy (survived by Mary Ellen), and Nancy Kirby; also survived by many nieces and nephews and cousins. Jim was a City of Pittsburgh Firefighter at Engine Company 17 for over 30 years. Jim was a devout Catholic and was a longtime member of St. Raphael Church. He was invaluable to his family members, selflessly giving rides, spending time and arranging for doctor’s appointments as they grew older. He was a history buff and loved being out in nature. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held in St. Jude Parish, St. Raphael Church on Wednesday at 11 am. A rosary will be recited for Jim at St. Raphael Church one half hour prior to the Mass. Interment private. Arrangements by McCabe Bros., Inc. Condolences may be left at www.mccabebrothers.com
