Irving met the love of his life, Louise, while she was a student at Syracuse University. They were married and made Syracuse their home. Irving was a member of Temple Adath Yeshurun.

Irving will forever be remembered for his love of his family, poetry, writing, golf, his wonderful sense of humor and his kindness.

My mother Ceil Seidberg and my aunt Betty Wallace were cousins to Irving. Your father was always friendly, smiling, and joking. He displayed a warmth and kindness to my mother and my aunt which was appreciated. May his memory be a blessing to your family.
