Irv loved his car and enjoyed our club. I had the opportunity to instruct him many times and he was riding with me when I spun off of SIR between 3a and 3b. I remember asking him if he was OK and hearing him laughing at me. I drove back up to the paddock to take a quick look at the car and to brush all of the dirt and straw off each other. He definitely enjoyed the ride. I hope I taught him something along the way.
The last time I saw him was our annual banquet. He was full of questions on what he had to do to his car to track it this year. I'm going to miss him, he was a true gentleman.
Please take the time to appreciate your friends and family. Lately I have seen many pass from us all too quickly. Always remember life is to be enjoyed not endured. I think Irv enjoyed his.
