He was a passionate Dallas Cowboys fan, a lover of the Los Angeles Dodgers, and could often be found at heavy metal shows standing quietly to the side, grinning from ear-to-ear.

He is survived by his wife, Janel Irvine, Santa Barbara, CA, parents, William & Norma Jeanne Irvine, Goleta, CA, sister Anne Irvine Tucci, Greensburg, PA, daughter Alexis Irvine, Goleta, CA, step-daughters Merissa Tidd & Tayler Limon and granddaughter Reyna, Mariposa, CA.

“Love you, brother.”
