Dear Kirtley Family, We are saddened to hear of the death of your dear one. We unfortunately never got to meet your father/grandpa, but from what we know of your family and of his obit. he must have been a jewel. I know that he must have made such great impacts to so many people. What a life! I am so inpressed at how well your family cared for him, visiting, feeding, listening and letting him know that you all were his beloved family. I know this because I heard our Dr. Kirtley tell of going to visit his father and help feed him at dinner time. I t was a choice by the family to be there for him. Thank you Kirtley Family for being great examples of God's hands and feet. We are still keeping the family in prayer. Love, R.T., Teresa, and Abbey Tatlock

Out of respect Dr Kirtley, but I’ve only ever known you as Doc, so it just didn’t sound right today. I’m sorry to hear Doc’s passing. He may still be the only doctor to this day I was not afraid of!! Might have been his grin and his chuckle! He and my dad taught me many things about IU football and basketball growing up, Thanks for all the wonderful memories! My thoughts and heart go out to the family.

Betsy (& Kip) So sorry to hear about your father's passing. When I started at "HCH" in 1980, he was still working in the ER. Although I did not work immediately with him, I grew to know him from the Patients I received on the Surgery Unit, the work he did to improve patient care and to grow the hospital. Also learned a lot from all of those stories told by those who had worked along side of him. God's Blessings on you and all your families, Theresa L Cordes, RN BSN

Dr. Kirtley was our family doctor during my entire childhood! How many times I remember sitting on the early American bench waiting to be seen. Can’t remember if it was Dr. Kirtley or Dr. Terry that pierced my ears! Back then it had to be done by a doctor! Thank you to his family for all the years of service to the Danville community! Sincerely, Shirley Headrick Heck
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Dr, Kirtley delivered my youngest child, Stacy Alice Staggs Peyton on September 4, 1968. He was a wonderful doctor who knew how to talk to you with nothing but kindness and understanding. We have all lost a great doctor and friend...........RIP Doc. I will be purchasing some Gideon bibles in Docs name so his work on this old earth will continue.

I was no more than 4 or 5 years old when my dad took me in to see Dr. Kirtley for a terrible sore throat. He told my dad to pull my pants down a bit to give me a shot in the bottom. My dad stood up and began to walk toward me and I took off like a bullet out of a gun!... screaming! He was chasing me all around that tiny room... and Dr. Kirtley was just standing there holding that needle getting a kick out of the whole ordeal! Loved that man! Prayers for his beloved family!
Elaine left a message on September 4, 2019:
He was my Dr for many years and delivered one of my five kids. The one he delivered loved him as a Dr and would not see anyone else but him. I was sad when he and Dr Terry gave up their practice and went to the hospital to work. May you rest in peace Doc, you will always be remembered in my family. The Drennan family!

Where do I start with all the memories :-)) . Dr Bob lived 2 houses away from us in the neighborhood growing up, and every time you even stubbed your toes, you would knock on his door and he would fix you up. He gave me the nick name of Toad. He will be greatly missed. :pray:
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
