In memory of Kirk Jobes

Kirk Jobes of Coldwell Banker Bain passed away suddenly on November 5th, 2017 while in Mexico with his love & partner in real estate, Susan Perry. He was raised in the Pacific NW, graduating from Clackamas High School and moved on to graduate from Portland State University with a degree in Business Administration. A proud US Veteran, Kirk served overseas in the Military police K9 unit and came home to train German Shepard in obedience school. An avid lover of animals, his passions included collecting classic cars, 1960’s muscle cars and listening to classic rock. In between buying and selling real estate and investment properties, Kirk could be found running marathons, filling bird feeders with large black sunflower seeds and tending to his gardens. He was passionately involved with the Portland Arts Museum, the Oregon Road Runners Club and the Oregon City Chamber of Commerce. Kirk loved the smell of the fresh air after a heavy rain. And his favorite holiday, Veteran’s Day, this November 11th he will be sorely missed.

Service will be held on Thursday, November 16th, 1:00pm at Living Hope Church, Oregon City. The address is 19691 S Meyers Road, which is just down the street from the Oregon City office of Coldwell Banker Bain.

Also, in lieu of flowers contributions to the Oregon Humane Society.
