Dear Celia and Lois and families,
It was with great sadness that I learned of Irwin's death. During my 20 years in Monroe Twp., Irwin was my colleague, my
confidente and trusted advisor, and one of my best friends.Though I moved to Md. 5 years ago, we stayed in touch by phone. He was invited to my 90th birthday in July but was too ill to travel. However, he sent a beautiful letter. I believe he and Helen are smiling together down on all of you giving you comfort.Love, LeeFarber

Celia and Lois,

Our deepest sympathy on your fathers passing.

Unfortunately Carole and I are travelling on our way home to Monroe and will not be able to make the services for your father.

He was a wonderful mentor to me when I came on the Council and was a dear friend who will missed no only by us but for all those he came into contact with over the years.

It was with extreme pleasure when we named the main meeting room at our new senior center in his honor. Too often these honors happen after people pass and in his case he not only saw the dedication but saw the many acrtivities that take place in the room in his honor.

Carole and Jerry Tamburro
