Despite having chronic health issues for the majority of his life, Irving made the best of his situation and loved spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren. He dedicated all of his energies to being a positive role model and mentor to his immediate family.

Irving was especially proud of his sister who worked for the late Senator John F. Kennedy in the 1950’s and then followed him to Washington, D.C. where she continued on as a White House Aid when he was sworn in as President.

Irving will be greatly missed, as he enhanced the lives of all he had met.
