Dorothy, Lauren and Jill,
Terry and I send our deepest sympathy on Irwin’s passing. Some of my fondest memories to this day are when I was a kid, he used to pick me up in Marblehead and take me to watch him referee in Gloucester, Beverly, Peabody and many other places. He made a young kid very proud of his “ cousin “ the referee. People like Irwin made the world a better place.
