Jack Irwin passed away Sept. 23, 2006, from heart failure in West Covina, Calif. He had been in Los Angeles at Cedars-Sinai Hospital, where he was being considered for a heart transplant.
Jack was born April 16, 1933, in Warren, Pa. The family moved to Hawthorne, Nev., in the late 1940s. He served in the U.S. Air Force from 1951 to 1965. Jack moved to West Covina and then went to work for Honeywell Inc./Hughes Air Craft. He retired in 1992, after 26 years, and moved to South Lake Tahoe. In 2004 he moved to Victorville, Calif. Jack loved to cook and his tacos and chili will be missed. He was “Papa Jack” to the grandchildren. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
Jack is survived by his wife, Isabelle; children, Greg, Judy, Cindy, Pam and Patty; 12 grandchildren; and seven great-grandchildren.
There will be a memorial at a later date, and in the spring his ashes will be scattered in the Lake Tahoe area.
