May the good Lord be with his family during these sad times.

“May joy soon replace the sorrow that's in your heart, with cherished memories.
“Ira was a special individual who touched so many in a positive way. His easy going manner and quick smile made him easy to love. His loyalty to his family, friends and Company truly set an example for everyone he met-myself included. My thoughts and prayers are with Gracie, the kids and grandchildren. The world has truly lost a shining light.

my deepest sympathy. Ira has been one of my best
friends for 43 years. Ira and I worked together with NAPA Balkamp
