I met Irwin 38 years ago when he first moved here to San Diego and lived in the San Carlos area off of Navajo and the family attended Tifereth Israel Synagogue. I immediately connected and became friends with his oldest son Robert whom many years later was one of the witnesses signed on my Ketubah and attended my wedding.

Irwin raised two very responsible and highly intelligent sons Robert & Jeffrey. I remember back during the md 80’s around the time of the stock market crash Irwin had to make some challenging decisions… During these times he showed qualities of determination and always maintained his wonderful sense of humor.

My deepest sympathy goes out to his awesome family; Marlene, Robert & Raquel, Jeffrey, and grandchildren Maura and Jacob. Irwin will always be remembered for his since of humor and loving friendship.

I met Irwin through Jeffrey Hillel at Jacobs bar Mitzvah in May of this year. I remember Irwin had a wonderful sense of humor as he said something about the glasses I was wearing at the time. My deepest condolences and sympathy to his Jeffrey and the rest of the family. I will always remember Irwin for him humor,
