The Namesake Of Kirby Has Passed Away

Today we are sad to report that 79 year old John Joseph Kirby, Jr., a prominent attorney in the United States, has passed away.

John Joseph Kirby, Jr. is the namesake of Kirby, the pink puffy hero everyone knows and loves today. Nintendo of America decided to name Kirby after him as he was one of their lawyers back in the day.

What do you think? Let us know in the comments.

Thanks, Brandon.
