Sincere sympathy to the family of Irv. He was our neighbor when I lived on Bowery Street and they on Center while growing up. I later worked with Irv at FSU...not directly but would see him at meetings and such and was also a classmate.
The last time I talked to him was in the market section of Walmart and he had told me of all his fun and travels. A very happy guy.
Always enjoyed his humor and friendship.
May he rest in peace.
