Irving was a member of the American Legion, Saint Mary's Polish National Church, and was actively involved in the community.

He is survived by daughter Kim Bernklau, his dear friend and son-in-law Bob Bernklau (Medford, WI.), and daughter Kandie Alter and son-in-law Joe Alter (Chicago, IL), along with three grandchildren for whom he was immensely proud of, including Max Bernklau (Medford, WI), Paige Werling and husband Brandon Werling (Anchorage, AK), and Jerry Alter (Chicago, IL).

Most everyone will remember Irving as a lover of good food, good friends, and good stories. He was an avid outdoorsman, a competitive card and cribbage player, was a life-long Green Bay Packers fan, and loved his family deeply. He was generous and kind, and will be missed by all who loved him.
