IRVIN LAWRENCE PFEIFER Irvin Lawrence Pfeifer passed away peacefully on the morning of February 27, 2017. He was born in Cooperstown, North Dakota on October 30, 1931. He graduated from Minnesota's Frazee High School (1950) where he enjoyed playing football, basketball, and running track. After high school, Irvin joined the U.S. Navy and served four years. Following his military service he graduated from North Dakota State University in Mechanical Engineering. While in college he married Pat Ebeltoft and they recently celebrated their 60th anniversary. He is survived by his wife, Pat and three children: Mike (Susan), Tom (Vickie), and Sue (Brad Crandall), eight grandchildren (Kellie, Ryan, Kevin (Rhiannon), Danny, Matt, Derek, Drew, and Kelsea), four great-grandchildren (Ingram, Scout, Oliver, and Rosemary), and his sister Louella (Virgil Schlueter) of Fergus Falls, Minnesota. After college Irvin worked for the nuclear industry in Idaho, Nevada, Wisconsin, and New York. In 1972 the family moved to Kennewick where they settled for the remainder of his life. Irvin retired from Westinghouse Hanford in 1992. During his years in Washington he enjoyed gardening, hunting, fishing, building a cabin at Priest Lake, and bee keeping. However, his favorite past-time was watching his grandchildren participate in their various activities. He had a great sense of humor and loved a good joke, even if he was on the receiving end. Irv will be greatly missed by his family and friends. A family celebration of life will be held this summer. Donations may be made in Irvin's name to a .
