Ladies and Gentlemen we have been commissioned to sale at public auction the furnishings and possessions from the home of native Texans, the late D. G. (“Kirk”) and Mary Lois Kirkland. After studying engineering at Texas A & M, Kirk served as a 1ST Lt. and AF test pilot during WWII. Following his military years, he and Mary Lois farmed and ranched at Mart, Texas and Troy, Texas during the 1940’s. They owned Duffy’s Photo Finishing Services, located in eight cities in Texas and New Mexico during the 1950’s and 60’s. The Kirkland’s were also builders and owners of the 15 story “Altura Towers” Apartments in Lubbock, Texas during the 1960’s, currently renamed ”Park Tower Apartments”. After selling the high rise landmark, they raised registered Charolais cattle while ranching at Water Valley, Texas. Kirk and Mary Lois served as President and Secretary of the Texas Charolais Association. Upon retirement they purchased their Gatesville home on Valentine’s Day of 1979.
