In the early morning hours of March 14th, 2022, after a years-long fight with cancer and diabetes, Thomas T. Kirkmeyer passed peacefully with little sister, Nancy, by his side.
Tom was born in Fort Worth, Texas, on January 7, 1946, the child of Gladys and Tom Kirkmeyer. After moving to Wyoming as toddler, Thomas eventually graduated from Worland High School.
In 1965 he joined the service and, like his father before him, he went to war. He served two tours in Viet Nam, from 1966-1968, and after coming home he enrolled at Casper College and then at the University of Wyoming to study political science.
In Casper, he met Reva Morris, married, and had two children, Jason and Kristen Kirkmeyer. They later divorced.
In 1999, Thomas married Linda Farrell, and joined her family: her three children, Terry, Gary, and Lisa (deceased); in addition, he is survived by five grandchildren and 20 great-grandchildren.
A visitation for family and friends will be held at Grace Bible Baptist Church at 405 S. Park on Monday, March 21, 2022 from 9:00 a.m. until the start of the service beginning at 10:00 a.m. Interment with military honors will follow in Oregon Trail State Veterans Cemetery.
Arrangements are entrusted to Bustard and Jacoby Funeral Home .
