His father, Spencer B. Kirk, listed "interior decorator" as his profession on a draft registration card of 06/05/1917 or 1918 and the U.S. Census of 1920; in c. 1917, he worked at the Walker Dry Goods Company, Main Street, Salt Lake City, UT. Spencer Kirk, Sr., was born in Tooele, UT, southwest of Salt Lake City, (10/27/1887-d. 03/25/1941 in Seattle), while both of his parents, James Kirk and Mary Peasnall, had come from England.
