Irv was a friend and associate at Susquehanna Bancshares. When he came to Penn College in my hometown we continued our friendship over an occasional lunch. Whenever I would engage a Penn student who was a student of Professor Siegel they always spoke in glowing terms about Irv as an individual and instructor. My condolences to Sue and family.

Irv will be greatly missed by Jack Stouffer. While I didn't have the privilege of meeting him, I heard a great many stories from Jack about when he and Irv would get together. Jack sends his condolences to Sue and the rest of his family. (typed by Karen Neblock)

Not sure when we actually met but we went to Ebenezer Elementary School together and throughout High School. Mild mannered and brilliant is what I remember. Reading his life story does not surprise me at all. Condolences to his family.

Thoughts and prayers going out to you Sue at this time. When I saw that Bud passed away I couldn't believe it. I remember coming over to your house with Lisa and asking if the both of you would play baseball with us and at times Laddie chasing the ball. Fond childhood memories.

So sorry to hear of Dr Siegals passing. His enthusiasm for education was infectious, opening learning doors for so many at NCCS. Great comfort to his sister, Sue, who also has that passion for education. May our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ hold the family close as He wipes away their tears in this time of sorrow.
