I worked with Kirk at Nationwide Power. His was highly liked and respected by all of his co-workers and customers, and he was a kind man and a smart UPS Engineer. We will all dearly miss him. Here's a few things his customers said about him:

"I'm a big fan of Kirk Sanders. Very knowledgeable with a sense of humor as well. 5 stars!"

"Kirk was great. He explained the process."

"I want to let Nationwide know how lucky they are to have Kirk a nice man and he knows his business."

"Kirk is a wonderful tech with all of the Southern Hospitality and charm."

He has left his mark here on so many of us and our condolences to all of his family.
