My sincere sympathy is the passing of Irv as he was known to many of we farmers.So many good memories when he came to our farm when he worked for Agway, always a gentleman. One memory I shall never forget was in 1971 when my late husband, LaMar, had had surgery for appendicitis. Irv came and asked for LaMar who was back in the field attempting to mow hay after being home a very short time, I told Irv that LaMar was too anxious for itto get done and he was going to mow even when I told him not a good idea. Ive said, "I thought if anyone could keep him down , you could." I laughed and said that he will be back in soon and sure enough he was and said it hurt to much to be on the tractor. Great man so sorry for you loss.
