The St. Thomas More Society banquet was a family affair May 20 when the group presented its Msgr. Paul Taggart-St. Thomas More Award to the unofficial law practice of Kirk, Kirk, Kirk, and Kirk. But the awardees – siblings William E. “Bill” Kirk III, Richard D. Kirk, and Susan Kirk-Ryan – felt their father, the late William E. Kirk Jr., was the real honoree.
“If you ask the three of us … the criteria for this St. Thomas More award simply and clearly describes our Dad,” former deputy attorney general Kirk-Ryan, 57, a hearing officer for the Delaware Department of Health and Social Services and member of St. Joseph on the Brandywine Parish in Greenville, said in accepting the award.
