Our loving father and grandfather passed away December 15, 2015, at age 65. He was born November 24, 1950, in Owosso, MI, to William and Mildred Irwin.
Tom enjoyed traveling, being by the water, cooking great meals, and listening to classic rock. He could be found most days spending time outdoors, hunting and fishing, and gardening. He was also a certified horticulturist. He was an avid sports fan and especially enjoyed watching football.
