Dear Kirsch family,

Like Glenn and Randy, I am so saddened and shocked at your loss of such a colorful part of your family- he was and always will be one of a kind! The memories of our Summit Country Club summers will always be significant in my mind and remembered with great fondness.

I can only hope that those and many other fond memories of Ira will eventually ease the pain of the loss. Please know that you all are in my thoughts and prayers and that my mom feels similarly.

To the entire family, the news of Ira's death is very sad. Like others, I go back many years with him. It didn't matter if time passed between bumping into one another; Ira was always friendly and warm accompanied by his unmistakable laugh that would put you at ease.

For several years, my father and Ira worked together and became good friends. It was a friendship my Dad enjoyed and I know he thought highly of Ira.

Ira has left this world too soon. Please accept my sincere condolences.

Amy and I were shocked to hear of Ira’s passing. He was one one of “good guys”.
Always had that look of mischievous little boy in his eye with a memorable infectious laugh.
When I was having a difficult recovery, from my surgery, he would visit me every day,when he was visiting his mom, to cheer me up. He was a like a light in the dark.
His memory is a true blessing to you and your family.

Ira or Uncle Ira as we all in our family called you , we are going to miss you so much. You were the first person I met when I moved to BALTO in 1966. We developed a bromance that lasted thru the years that will be missed terribly. Your smile, boisterous laugh, and bear hugs, what can I say. To the whole Kirsch family our thoughts and love are out to you. Camille as you said you lost your best friend. Words can't express the void felt but memories will carry Ira's name on forever. Rest in peace, my friend...
