Kaiser Lorn Birck, 38, passed away at his home in Cypress Mill, TX surrounded by his family on May 14, 2014. He was born in Austin, TX to Vernon and Gretchen Birck. Kaiser will be watching over his wife, Suree Birck, 16 year old step daughter, Alexus Crochet, 4 year old son Braxton Birck and 7 month old daughter Copelin Birck. He will also be looking down over his mother and father, Vernon and Gretchen Birck, brothers Derek Birck and his wife Ronnie and their three children and his brother Blayne Birck and wife Ann. Kaiser also leaves behind aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and a host of other loving relatives and dear friends.

Often referred to as “Captain” by some of his peers, Kaiser was a strong man, physically and mentally. He was a born leader, always the guy that everyone looked up to and came to for help. He was the type of person that would put his own wants, desires and needs aside in order to help or provide for others; always sharing with those that needed. Just like his grandfather, Kaiser was the type of guy that you could just drop by and have a beer and lots of laughs with. There often didn’t even need to be conversation, just a good cold drink and a tailgate. He was always available to offer advice on building a barn, a fence, butchering an animal, fixing a water heater or hanging a ceiling fan. He was a worker, always focusing on the next project and enjoyed staying busy outdoors. Kaiser loved to fish, once catching a 26” wide mouth bass on a fishing trip to Mazatlan, Mexico. Kaiser spent lots of time on the Pedernales River, running trotlines or at Choke Canyon battling the alligators.

Kaiser courageously fought his battle with brain cancer but our good Lord had bigger plans for Kaiser and needed his help beyond this world.

Visitation was held Friday, May 16, 2014 at Crofts – Crow Funeral Home in Johnson City. Funeral services were held Saturday morning at Liberty Lighthouse Fellowship Church, 321 Old River Crossing, Johnson City, TX 78636 with Rev. Ernest Topper officiating. Interment followed in the Cypress Mill Cemetery. A reception at the Blanco Co. Fairgrounds followed the burial.

In lieu of flowers please make memorial contributions to the Marnie Rose Foundation supporting Brain Cancer research at Brain Power 5K, P.O. Box 1991, Cedar Park, TX 78630.
