Dear Uncle Irvin, Always a sweet, kind and funny guy, you will be missed very much. I loved hearing your stories about the Brown and the O’Hara families, about growing up in a Home in Rhode Island with your brother, Ed, and your adventures while serving in the Air Force. You will always be remembered with love.

Irv, you served your country proudly both in the military and as a public servant. My father, who was in the Navy for 22 years fighting in WWII and Korea always taught me to respect the veterans. I respect you immensely!
