Kirk Mariner
Kirk Mariner Kirk Chapman Mariner died June 8, 2017, at his home in Onancock, Va. He was 74. He was born in New Church, Va. on June 4, 1943, the son of Vincent and Beatrice Chapman Mariner. He graduated from Atlantic High School (1961) and Randolph-Macon College (1965), and prepared for the ministry at Yale Divinity School, graduating in 1968. He later obtained a Doctor of Ministry degree from Wesley Theological Seminary in 1979. He was for 37 years a full-time itinerant minister to the Virginia Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church, in which he served six churches: Hopewell (Chesterfield), Dulin (Falls Church), Centreville, Church of the Good Shepherd (Vienna), Mount Olivet (Arlington), and Williamsburg. Upon retirement in 2005 he moved to Onancock, where he worshiped regularly at Market Street United Methodist Church. He will be remembered by some as a musician, having studied piano for eight years and performed, singing and playing the piano or both, for countless audiences (the first of which was at Keller Fair when he was six years old). He was an avid student of history, both ancient and modern, and was the author of numerous books and articles on the history of the Eastern Shore of Virginia. Intelligent, witty, and charming, he was an engaging conversationalist who had the grace to know when to listen. He was a good friend to neighbor and stranger alike, generous with his time and with his knowledge of the Eastern Shore's past. He was as meticulous in his housekeeping as in his historical research. His home and garden were showplaces. He loved the church, his family and friends, and the Eastern Shore. The Shore has lost a native son.

Kirk Mariner
Kirk Mariner The term "a gentleman and a scholar" was coined for men like Kirk Mariner, he was the epitome of both. I'm not sure I even remember the first time I met him, but I remember hearing so much about him and his many accomplishments during the early years of of our marriage. It was during the sixties' when my husband Carroll Hastings (a first cousin of Kirk's) and I were married and Kirk was well on his way to a remarkable future. Kirk was intelligent, witty, sensitive and caring; a joy to be around! We will miss him! We send our condolences to Vincent and Kathy and their families and also our gratitude for the loving care he was given by all of you. God Bless You All. Today, June 15, seems emptier because Kirk is no longer with us to answer questions, to engage in conversation, or to receive miscellaneous Eastern Shore artifacts as they are discovered! Fortunately for us, he will live on through his writings as well as the memories we have accumulated across the years. The service yesterday was a fitting tribute to his life and faith, and visiting his museum after we left the cemetery was a deeply enriching experience. I hope the museum can continue as a visible, lasting expression of Kirk's expertise in telling the Eastern Shore story, as only he could do. Kirk was a fellow pastor and friend. I never had the pleasure of meeting Rev. Mariner, but I wanted to tell his family how much I like his books about the Eastern Shore. I will miss you Kirk, and I will always have fond memories of our days at Randolph-Macon College and our friendship that continued through the years. Kirk was pastor of the Williamsburg United Methodist Church when my husband and I started attending there. I liked him immediately but what he did for me in 2000 I will never forget. He came to the hospital early in the morning before my surgery for breast cancer to say a prayer for me and then came back to see me in the afternoon. I will never forget that and I could always talk to him about anything. He was a gifted musician who could play any type of music and sing anything and also write music, some very funny. I feel fortunate to have known him and was sorry when he retired. God bless his family. He will be missed. Be at peace, Kirk. We met Kirk when we asked for his help in researching the Captain Timothy Hill House on Chincoteague. When we had an event to celebrate our listing on The National Register of Historic Places, Kirk came and gave a beautiful dedication and blessing to the house. We were so honored to know him and know he will be greatly missed. My husband and I were members of Centerville UMC from 1975 to 1979 while Kirk was pastor there. He was never.r far from my thoughts and we spoke fondly of him often. Kirk was working on his doctoral thesis while in Centerville and interviewed us, along with other members of the church for his research. I knew of his love for the history of the Eastern Shore and fully expected he would write about it. Few people leave the kind of mark on this world that Kirk did. To understand the impact this gifted man had on others, how you feel at his passing says it all. We are saddened at the loss but joyful that he can now fully serve the Lord that he so faithfully served in this life. Rest in peace Kirk. Post a reply Message from Williamsburg, VA June 13, 2017 11:12 AM I worked with Kirk at Williamsburg UMC. He is one of those people I wish I had stayed in regular contact with, as I admired him so much. He was a true teacher/preacher endowed with so many gifts: preaching, ministering, mentoring, listening, music, writing. He was highly intelligent, sensitive, introverted yet personable, and caring. Beloved by so many on earth, he will be busy in heaven sharing his God-given talents with God and all the saints who have gone before us. Rest in peace, dear Kirk. My dear friend,Kirk, Rest in Peace. Kirk was the very first person I met at Randolph-Macon in 1961, and we remained close friends despite the years and distance that separated us. My daughter told me yesterday she used to think he was my brother when she was small. A true friend and a wonderful person. He will be missed. I will always remember Kirk for his help to others. I was a freshman at Randolph-Macon, and Kirk tutored me in Greek! Now that was something to see, a boy from the shore, tutoring a boy from the country--In Greek. And then through the years, also being a member of the Virginia Conference, Kirk and I crossed paths a many a time and served at least once on the same District. Kirk was always a gentleman and a fine person! Kirk will be greatly missed. He was an inspiration to all who knew him, always with a smile for everyone an a joy to talk with. Kirk was an extraordinary person! He will be missed very very much. My prayers are with his family and other close friends. Kirk was such a unique personality and we will miss him tremendously not only here @ Market Street UMC, but all over the Shore and beyond. It has been a joy to be entertained by him throughout the years. Whether he was playing the piano or telling a story, he made it seem as easy as breathing...a truly God given gift. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones.

Kirk Mariner of Onancock, an author and historian and himself a retired minister, said Bailey was seriously considered and close to being appointed as a bishop of the United Methodist church -- widely regarded as the most powerful figure in Protestantism. "He was very highly respected," said Mariner of Bailey. And he fondly remembered his home, Sheffield said. "In his column, he referred to the Eastern Shore so often," he said.
