Back to Hall of Fame
Kirk S. Williams was born and raised in Washington, D.C., and graduated from Roosevelt High School in 1968. He then worked three years for the C&P Telephone Company and received an honorable discharge from the National Guard approximately five years after entering the United States Secret Service Uniformed Division, for which he worked nearly 30 years.
Kirk was elected to the Nation’s Capital Area Bowling Association (NCABA) board of directors in 1985 and soon was named chairman of the Awards Committee that he revitalized. Kirk served on the Hall of Fame, Program Evaluation, Legislative, and Tournament Site committees and also did lane inspections for several years. In addition, he spent many hours in the office entering leagues into the NCABA computer system at the beginning of the season and keying in awards data for members who qualified for American Bowling Congress (ABC) and local awards.
Kirk has long assisted in bringing awards to bowling centers for presentation to league bowlers. He has conducted many jamborees as well as numerous league meetings to work out various problems, and always has been available to help whenever and wherever needed.
Kirk attended workshops at ABC and United States Bowling Congress conventions for 26 years and at Virginia State conventions for 15 years. He also worked at NCABA, Virginia State, and NCAUSBCA tournaments. He served on the NCABA board for 21 years and currently is an NCAUSBCA director.
Kirk was elected fifth vice president of NCABA in 2000 and subsequently worked his way up to the office of president in 2005-2006, that association’s final season. From 2008 to 2010, he served a two-year term as the second president of NCA-USBCA, during which time he oversaw the creation of the new Rerate Committee to help maintain integrity in bowling in this area. He also started NCAUSBCA’s local awards program and plans to enhance it as funds become available.
Kirk began bowling in 1969 at Rinaldi’s Riggs Plaza Bowl in Chillum, Md. His high game is 290—a feat he accomplished twice—and his high series is 769. He has been married for 26 years to his wife, Maxine, and has two children and four grand-children from a previous marriage.
Kirk S. Williams’s dedicated service on behalf of area bowlers merits him a special spot in the NCAUSBCA Hall of Fame.
