Dear LHAB,

Words seem inadequate to express the sadness we feel about Van Evers Kirkpatrick’s death on Feb. 27, 2014. Mr. Kirkpatrick brought many gifts to our lives. He was a member of the Longhorn Band and a charter member and first president of the UT chapter of Kappa Kappa Psi.  He was also a member of LHAB and in 2013 participated in Band Day, as one of the oldest members. 

Personal memories and words of comfort may be sent to the family at on their online guestbook at

The family will gather for a time of visitation on Sunday, March 2, 2014 at 12:00PM at The Gabriels Funeral Chapel, 393 North IH35, Georgetown. A service celebrating Van’s life will be held at 1:30PM. Graveside services will follow at 3:30PM at Live Oak Cemetery, 200 Twin Creek Road, Manacha, Texas 78652. 

We are here to support you in your grieving process. You’ll be in our thoughts and prayers.

With deepest sympathy,
Nefertiti Williams, LHAB President
