"Such a kind, loving, and funny Man. A favorite Uncle to many. The stories you told ,the songs you sang, so many laughs . We always were excited when we seen or heard a rig come down our road because we knew who was behind the wheel. Every year we would spend a week in old forge and every year there would be an unforgettable incident. There are so many memories. I know I will miss you but a piece of you will always be in my heart. Until we see each other again know that  I love you. My favorite Uncle.... Uncle Irv"

"Uncle Irv was a great man. If he was in a room just know the room would be light with his joy, positivity and laughter. A laughter like no one else. He would sit and tell me  joke after joke and have me rolling on the floor laughing. There was never a dull moment with Uncle Irv around. It sad to see him gone but i know he is with multiple members of his family for he would talk about so much. RIP Uncle Irv... see you again some day! Much love xoxo"
