Ted was born May 15, 1947 in Keokuk, IA, the son of Howard and Lorene Brisby Kirchner.

He was preceded in death by his parents; a brother, Leroy "Sonny" Kirchner; and a sister, Pat Brown.

Ted graduated from Kahoka High School in 1965. Following graduation he joined the United States Army. He was a member of the 181st Airborne Division during the Vietnam War.

He was employed at Electro Metals and following his discharge from the service he worked as a car salesman, then for J. C. Penney, and then Roquette. Later he went to work for Nixon’s and then Kahoka Motor, both in Kahoka.

On August 19, 1967, he was married to Maxine Heinze and from this union was born one son, Tod L. Kirchner. The past sixteen years he has bravely fought cancer.
