David “Kirk” Gilkeson, 40, of Roanoke, went home to be with the Lord on October 30, 2022.  He leaves behind his loving parents, David (Lynda), Debra Anderson (Marvin); his brother, Nathan (Heather); three step-brothers, Shawn Anderson (Heather), Ronnie Anderson (Teri), Daniel McBroom (Crystal); and step-sisters, Alexandra Panaretos and Cara Hughes-McBroom. Preceding him in death were his grandparents Francis and Mattie Gilkeson and Percy Cornell Barnes. Kirk worked for UPS – a job he dearly loved.  He loved the outdoors and talking to people, which made it a perfect fit for him.  He loved driving the “brown truck”. Kirk loved music and it was a big part of his life. Kirk never met a stranger.  He enjoyed hiking, reading, antiquing and had an eye for art. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends. We find comfort that he is with the Lord. Arrangements by Burch-Messier Funeral Home, Bedford, 540-586-7360.
