Irwin's great sense of humor and laughter will be missed by all who knew and loved him. He spent all his working years as a music publisher and co-owner of GPS Music. He will be greatly missed by his wife Hilane and children Allan and Lisa. He also leaves behind his brother Leonard; sister Gloria and a nephew, nieces and their families. In lieu of flowers, donations can be sent to the Alzheimer's Association.

My parents were friends with Irwin and Hilane. They go back from when they lived in New York. I remember that Irwin was always laughing, a lot of fun. I was just a young kid then. They named their kids after us, Lisa and my brother, Jeffrey.

Irwin was such a sweet man. I enjoyed the time we worked together at April Blackwood. He was a true gentleman, and brought a level of class to the music publishing business. RIP, Irwin.

Dear Hilane, Lisa and Allan:
I don't have to tell you that Irwin was the dearest man with the biggest heart in the world. I couldn't have loved him more if he were my brother. I'll always remember his smile and that wonderful laugh of his, the great stories, his quick wit. He was always there when something needed fixing, too, and he usually managed to fix it right! Irwin will always live in a place in my heart. My love to each of you, Terri Fricon

Dear Hilene, Allan and Lisa. Irwin was the best in my book. Hilene, do you remember I stayed at your home in New York when I started writing for Pincus Music. I'll always hold Irwin in the highest esteem. It's strange but he was on my mind very strongly this past week, in fact I was trying to find his phone number. I know I'll see him in a better place the next time. He'll probably invite me to stay until I get settled! My love to you all and deepest condolences. Neil Sheppard

Dear Hilene, Allan and Lisa: Irwin had the best laugh and stories (Irwinisms) in the world. We always had fun at your home...those were the best times ever! He is in a better place, and God bless you all. Love, Kim and Ronda Espy

Hilane, Allan and Lisa,
I'm so sorry for your loss. Irwin was one of the funniest people I'd ever met, and also very kind. I still tell a few Irwin Pincus stories.
Sending you thoughts of love and peace. I hold warm memories of Irwin and you in my heart.
