Lyn and family, We are deeply saddened to learn of Irwinís passing. His love of life was apparent and his adventurous spirit was an inspiration. Talking with Irwin was always a pleasure. His easygoing humor and curiosity made conversations fun and relaxed. He was an asset to Castleton Boat Club and we are lucky he chose our club as his home port.! We will miss him and think of him fondly always.
Sincerely , Steve and Lynn Bearup

I'd like to express sympathies to Lyn and Irwin's family. Our mutual interest in the enjoyment of motorcycles, especially dirt bikes, has defined the nature of our friendship for decades. His devotion to the Greylock Riders club was instrumental to its long success. He will be remembered for his strong-mindedness and his efforts to promote good times in the motorcycling and snowmobiling communities. You had a good run, pal.
