Meeker resident, Kirk Womack, passed away surrounded by family on Wednesday afternoon. He was 68.

Kirk was born to Jack and Nyda Womack in April 1952. During his childhood he lived and attended schools in Lovington, Tatum, and Hobbs, New Mexico. He ran track and field, played football, soccer, baseball and was in the Boy Scouts. After high school, Kirk attended New Mexico Junior College for a while but left to begin an electrical apprenticeship in the oilfields of Texas and New Mexico. A year later he had earned his Journeyman’s license at the age of 22.

Kirk met the love of his life, Linda, in September 1975. They were married just weeks later, on Halloween. The couple had the honor of celebrating their 45th wedding anniversary this year. They raised three children together, and spent time in Colorado, Wyoming and New Mexico. Kirk held multiple state Master Electrician licenses and worked exclusively in industrial construction.

He often acknowledged that he was proud to have worked for Southwestern Electrical Contracting in Alamogordo, New Mexico, the last 14 years of his career. He was able to work at Holloman Air Force Base and White Sands Missile Range before retiring in May of 2019. After retirement, Kirk and Linda moved to Meeker, Colorado, to be closer to their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren who live in Grand Junction.

In his spare time. Kirk enjoyed hunting, camping, woodworking and barbecuing. Kirk was a devoted husband and loving father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He will be deeply missed by his family and friends across multiple states.

Kirk is survived by his wife Linda Womack of Meeker; their children Michael and Carrie Womack, and Melanie and Mike Sexton of Grand Junction, Colorado, and Clinton and Brandi Womack of LaPorte, Texas. Kirk is further survived by 14 grandchildren, six great-grandchildren and a larger extended family who loved him dearly.

Kirk was preceded in death by his parents, Jack and Nyda Womack; and his sister, Neysa Powell.

The family has decided not to have any local viewings or services. There will be a celebration of life later in the spring where friends and family will be able to gather together in the mountains of Colorado.

In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that donations be made directly to the Grant Mortuary, 621 Yampa Ave, Craig, Colorado 81625 to help with final expenses.
