Longtime magician Gene Kirk of Muncie, Indiana passed away - Gene invented several tricks over the years for Irelands including "Buttons, buttons, Where Are Your Buttons" - Gene was a frequent traveler to dozens of magic conventions over the years and knew many of the 'greats' of the day. He was a good friend and confidante..the very first magician I ever met...He will be missed...

I am so sorry to hear that Gene passed away.

I remember, I was a young boy, standing in front of Gene's magic counter carefully looking over all the magic tricks trying to decide which one to buy.
I think I was about 10 or 11 years old.

Gene was always polite, helpful and always professional in his presentation of the magic.
