Irving Steele passed away peacefully in Calgary on May 21, 2020 at the age of 92 years of age. He was born in Red Deer, spent his early years in the Isle of Man, and lived the majority of his life in Calgary, Alberta.

Louise and Family : I am sorry this took so long to write but we finally got past the real sadness we felt upon the passing of Irv . “Doc” as he was known to most of the Hodgson clan , helped Ione and I with so many building projects During the first number of years of our marriage . From building fences to fixing cars we could always depend on Doc!! In the past few years when we re-connected with Doc , we really enjoyed his company when Ann, Ione, David and I would pick up Ken from the nursing home and meet him for lunch. We really appreciated him driving across the City to attend Our 60th celebration and being invited to attend his 90th birthday! We will remember him fondly! Ione & Ed
