Ivan Irwin not only was a defensemen for the New York Rangers and Montreal Canadians in the 1950’s but he was a friend of our family for well over 35 years. I first met Ivan when I was a 10 year old kid. He was the new beau of our family friend Peg. As a kid, I’d never met “new boyfriends” of my parents friends. Ivan was a kind and gentle soul from as long as I can remember. He died peacefully with his family at his side February 11th at 4:45AM at the age of 91. Condolences to his family, friends and all who met the legend.
Rest Easy Kind Sir

Hi Simon, enjoyed the honouring of my father-in-law Ivan Irwin but it would have been better if you had mentioned his biological children in the forward. Cindy, Mark and Kim are the children from his first marriage.
Hi Jane. I am changing the intro to reflect your note. Thanks for that
Thank you, much appreciated.
