A Sacred Moment


Richard Emmitt Irving

April 09, 1941 - June 25, 2013

A Good Man With A Great Sense Of Humor

Dick passed away suddenly on June 25, at age 72 at his home in Stanwood. He was born in Pasadena, California to Lucille and Dick Irving, who preceded him in death.

He was a good man, with a great sense of humor and a talent for telling stories. He loved living in the country, riding motorcycles (at high rates of speed), hanging out with his family and friends, and listening to jazz, especially Miles Davis. He was a skilled mechanic and a hard-working logger, and had enjoyed his retirement from both occupations since 1995. Dick was a charter member of The Blitzmen.

He is survived by his wife of 12 years, Tommy Sue Epps, his daughter Morgan Boykin of Victorville, CA, son Quinn (Melissa) Irving of Bellingham, sister Patricia Robinson of Bellingham, and grandchildren Jason Boykin, Darren James, and Kolby and Maleena Martin.

In the Great Scheme of Things 

In the great scheme of things, what matters is not how long you live, but why you live, what you stand for, and what you are willing to die for.

Paul Watson

Love Lives On 

Those we love remain with us,
for Love itself lives on.
Cherished memories never fade;
because one loved is gone.

Those we love can never be
more than a thought apart,
for as long as there's a memory
they live on in our heart.
Think of him as living
in the hearts of those he touched,
for nothing loved is ever lost,
and he was loved so much.
