John William Kirk was born near the frontier of Mexico in the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas. He spent the first 18 years of his life in rural South Texas. Growing up in a rural Texas town he was exposed to a lot of American common sense. He also worked in a number of varied jobs such as fry cook, insulation installer, construction and oil field casing crews.

After graduating high school, John enlisted in the United States Air Force where he used his musical skills to play bassoon in the 541st Air Force Band of the Southwest. He was honorably discharged in 1979.
