It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we mourn the passing of Denny L. Irwin.
Denny was born on December 17, 1947 in Brookville, PA, and passed away peacefully at home, in Mesa, surrounded by family, on May 31, 2018 after battling brain cancer.
He is survived by his wife of 50 years, Eileen (McGowan) Irwin, his son Bryan (Toie) Irwin of Muscatine, IA, daughter Stacey (Christopher) Kutzler of De Pere, WI, four grandchildren, three step-grandchildren, four great-grandchildren, and eight step-great-grandchildren. He is also survived by brothers Rod Irwin of Pittsburgh, PA, Kim (Ann Marie) Irwin of Elizabeth, CO, Gerry and Matt Irwin of Erie, PA, six nephews, two great-nephews, two great nieces and many others who loved him and thought of him as family.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Clair Eugene “Ted” and Mary Olivia (Riggs) Irwin, and a brother, Teddy Shawn.
Denny graduated from McDowell High School in Erie, PA, in 1965, where he participated in gymnastics. He became a Draftsman by trade and enjoyed drawing, painting, reading, square dancing, classic cars, and collecting owl figurines and statuary.
Denny was interred at Mountain View Cemetery following a small private family gathering.
