IRWIN, Brian 1958 – 2008 On September 23, 2008 at the age of 49, Brian Charles Irwin passed away in the arms of his wife, daughters, and friends. He gave cancer a completely new meaning of courageous. He will be sorely missed as a beloved soul mate, unbelievable father, son, brother, uncle and friend to many.
