So sorry Chelsea, Tamara and Family. Irv was a great guy and a great friend. We were lucky enough to work together for many years in White Plains, NY and in Stamford, CT. We always had a good time all the time. Was a pleasure to know Irv.

Mr. Grant was always very nice to me, and always calmed down his German Sheppard when I would come up there. Shocked to hear of his passing. So sorry to hear of your loss.

Chelsea & Tamara Your Dad’s happiest days were those spent with you both, his beloved daughters & his grandchildren. Wishing you all that brings you comfort during your sorrow...p e a c e 🕊xo Mom

“Grief, I’ve learned, is really just love. It’s all the love you want to give, but cannot. All that unspent love gathers up in the corners of your eyes, the lump in your throat, and in that hollow part of your chest. Grief is just love with no place to go.”
Quote by: Jamie Anderson

In memory of your father a child’s smile will be restored through ‘Operation Smile’.

Chelsea, I am so so sorry for your loss. Be strong, and remember he loved you with all his heart and was very proud of the young beautiful lady you’ve become. My heart is broken. I met your Dad 41 years ago and we remained friends for all these years. I’ll miss the early morning , just checking up on you phone calls, that turned into 2 hour conversations. He was my best friend and I will never forget him. I loved him like the brother I never had. We had so many great times together. Your Dad was a very thoughtful kind and caring man with a great sense of humor and always was there for Char and me. I could go on and on about the kind of friend and man he was and I’ll never forget him. I want you to remember that we’ll always be here for you should you need us. Love you, Rich and Char.

To Chelsea Rose, Irv was a loving Uncle to Steve and Mike. They will remember the good times spent camping in Cape Cod with him and fishing for Bluefish on L. I. sound on his boat. Goodbyes only last for a moment but love and memories remain in your heart forever. Our deepest sympathy Aunt Marianne, Uncle Sandy, Steve and Michael. Irving was an animal lover. In his memory we will make a donation to the ASPCA.
