Irwin was also the Chief of the Lumby Fire Department for 16 years although we was an active member for 36 years, just one year short of it’s inception.
After retirement, Irwin spent his time with Red travelling to the Baja and spending the summers at their cabin on Okanagan Lake surrounded by his family. He spent his hours Golfing and Fishing, both activities he loved.
The family will celebrate his life privately at the cabin as he wanted.
