My condolences. I knew Irv in his days as a lobbyist for the city in Harrisburg and also in his years at the School District. He was a stand up guy who did a lot for the city and for school children during his time at the SD

Irv and I were very close friends when I was a a member of the House from Pittsburgh, 1967-1962. Mayor Rizzo criticized Irv for being friends with that liberal from Pittsburgh
I admired Irv so much for his great work on behalf of Philadelphia.

Irv's legacy will live on in the many of us who were blessed to be around him. I will always remember our last few chats these past years. He was a man of many talents and I am the better for his wisdom. Joan, you and he will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Joan & Family,

What a man! What a mentor! What a friend! What a storyteller! What a finance professional! What a party planner and mixologist!

He will be missed by so many because he touched so many lives--no matter what your status in life!

The School District thanks him for his many years of hard work. Even in his retirement years he found a way to keep on giving through his special dedication to improving our liquor-by-the-drink revenues. He was the gold standard in government service.

Warmly,
Chris Ward
