1957 ~ 2017
Mr. John Sherman Irwin of Lethbridge, beloved husband of Eva, father of Caitlin Stock (Eric, baby Liam), Brad (Erin), and Keira, passed away on February 18 after a lengthy cancer battle, at age 59.
John was born and raised in Peterborough. He moved to Regina where he met and married Eva, received a Bachelor of Social Work from the University of Regina, and had 3 children.
In 1998, the Irwins moved to Coaldale, and have lived in the area since. John’s greatest joy was his family: leading a family with Eva, volunteering at his daughters’ day care, and watching his son play CIS football for the Regina Rams. In 2015, John received the ‘Exemplary Long Service Award’ for his 25 years as a Parole Officer.
John was predeceased by his parents, Sherman & Dorothy Irwin. John is survived by his wife and children, and siblings, Barb, Brenda Hill (Dave), Jim, and Pat Hinman (John).
