We as a family are deeply saddened by the loss of such an amazing man, Irvin loved to be in nature, he was an avid explorer and held deep respect for the land. He passed on this love by sharing many great adventures with his family and friends.
He was one of the greatest story tellers around and his laugh was infectious, but it was his deep love for his wife that is hard to forget. He forever referred to Martha as his bride and true love, he would speak of her with a sparkle in his eye even if he was sitting right next to her holding her hand.
Irvin you are missed deeply, rest now, in peace, in love, and in the comfort that your memory and legacy lives on today and always.
