Notes:  Irwin's mother passed away when he was 2½ years old.  He and his dad and two brothers then lived with Mrs. Eggery and family on a rooming and boarding basis.

Later, Irwin's dad opened up a motion picture house, the Star, and Irwin and his two brothers were the machine operators.  They used "Path" machines with the old arc lights.  The projection booth was steel-lined and an unpleasantly hot working environment.  Irwin eventually had it and quit.

As an adult Irwin worked for the Mare Island Naval Yard.

Irwin passed away at age 83.
