“Wherever a beautiful soul has been, there is a trail of beautiful memories.”

You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

I had the pleasure of meeting, knowing and working with Ira at BellSouth. You could set your watch by his timely arrival each day and, in those days, he always had his briefcase. (I'd call him Darren Stevens for his business-like demeanor.) But it didn't take long to realize Ira was the 'go-to' guy--he was able to resolve any problem I'd bring him.

Later, Ira, Tommy Ferguson and I joined a pool league; had a team named "Yellow Hammers" and that's where I met the 'other' Ira--the one he didn't show me at BellSouth!

On pool nights, he'd leave 'serious Ira' at work and wear a serious grin instead. Away from work, we grew to expect Ira to tell us a good story or joke--he never let us down. And he'd even sprung for the occasional pitcher of beer!

Everyone enjoyed spending time with Ira.

He became a really fine pool shooter--one year our team even won the annual city-wide tournament. We played league pool off and on for years.

I have wonderful memories of Ira that will always be with me.

I am so sorry about Ira’s passing. He was such a great person and will certainly be missed. I met him while playing in the APA pool league, and he was a teammate for quite some time. He was a great pool player and friend. He had a kooky side, a sunny side, a crazy side, a weird side but most of all was just a great person overall. He is gone too soon. Debbie, you and your family are in my prayers. May God hold all of you in the palm of His hand and when He isn’t, may He keep His arms around your shoulders. {{{HUGS and LOVE}}}
