Irvin had two passions, his work at the law firm he founded, and his family.  Both were a constant blessing to him throughout his life.  He and Carole raised their six children together - Eric Leroy "Ezra" (Gila) - who have three sons, two daughters, and five grandchildren, Daniel Scott (Stacey) - who have a daughter, Paul Harry, Stephen Michael (Anna) - who have a daughter, Jeremy Alan, and Julia Lynn (Dan), who have three sons and three daughters.
