He spent his childhood at our house in Young's Point, a place that he always considered his home. At the time of his passing, he resided in Winnipeg, Manitoba so he could be close to his baby girl, Lily.

He also worked at the Smokey Falls Generating Station near Kapuskasing, Ontario. Somewhere in between working on the dams he went out west to work in Vancouver, BC as well. Irvin's infectious personality and his kind heart has made lasting friendships with many coworkers from across the country.

When God saw you getting tired
And a cure was not to be
He put his arms around you
And whispered come to me
He didn’t like what you went through
And he gave you rest
His garden must be beautiful
He only takes the best
And when we saw you sleeping
So peaceful and free from pain
We wouldn’t wish you back
To suffer that again
Today we say goodbye
And as you take your final rest
That garden must be beautiful
Because you are one of the best.

Our baby brother we love you and see you when we see you! Forever in our hearts!
