Salt Lake Tribune humor columnist Robert Kirby was raised in a military family. After serving an LDS mission to South America, Kirby became a police officer. His law enforcement career was cut short in 1989 by the idiotic notion of becoming a writer.
Robert has written for the Tribune since 1994. His column appears every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday. He is the author of six humor books, two novels, and a history book on Utah’s murdered police officers.
A confused grandfather, Kirby has three daughters and one wife. He lives with his long-suffering family in Herriman, where neighbors no longer speak to him on the record.
