Kirk Greenslade

Grimes (formerly of Adel) - Kirk Greenslade, 50, of Grimes (formerly of Adel) was born on March 30, 1971 to Steven and Debora (Nixon) Greenslade in Des Moines, Iowa. Kirk passed away at his home on August 1, 2021.

Kirk is survived by his wife, Hayley Greenslade; children, Kolby (Megan) Greenslade, Luke Greenslade, Raquel Greenslade, and Maleah Greenslade; step-children, Sydney, Karsten, and Jacob; grandchildren, Kipton and Korver; brothers, Bret Greenslade, Nick Greenslade, and Justin Greenslade; sisters, Lindsay Koons, Danyelle Walls, and Kimberly Wyckoff; father, Steve (Marcia) Greenslade; mother, Debbie Nixon; and grandmother, Bettie Nixon.

Kirk attended Adel-Desoto High School in 1989 and excelled in wrestling and football. After high school, he enlisted in the Marine Corp. Following his service in the Marines, he joined the United States Army Reserves as a recruiter. He was very proud to serve his country. Kirk owned and operated many different businesses, his most recent being Iron Men Construction. He was a hard worker and loved his job.

Kirk was outgoing, loyal, and had a great sense of humor. Some might say he was the "life of the party." He loved spending time with his friends and family. You could often find Kirk spending time outdoors – whether he was hunting with his boys, camping with his girls, attending his kid's sporting events, fishing, or riding his motorcycle. He considered himself a grill master and exotic meal creator – meaning he put Tabasco sauce on anything he could think of, including ice cream. He especially loved cooking for his wife, Hayley.

The most important quality that defined Kirk was that he was proud. He was proud of where he was from, he was a proud veteran, he was proud of his work, he was proud of his wife, and he was proud of his family. He was especially proud of his two grandsons.

"My old man

I know one day we'll meet again

As he's looking down

My old man

I hope he's proud of who I am

I'm trying to fill the boots of my old man."

Visitation will be held on Friday, August 6, 2021 with family receiving friends from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. at Caldwell Parrish Funeral Home in Adel, McCalley Chapel. Funeral service will take place at 10:30 a.m., on Saturday, August 7, 2021 at Caldwell Parrish Funeral Home, McCalley Chapel. Burial will be held in the Iowa Veteran's Cemetery in rural Van Meter at a later date.

Memorials may be directed to the Wounded Warriors Project.
