Sadly, We Have Lost Jim Irwin. May He Rest In Peace.

Glenna Earle Speaks:
Maybe you’ve already been notified, but I wanted to let you know that Jim Irwin died Tuesday in Liverpool, Nova Scotia. (2021 05 25)
Many people in the shuffleboard world will remember Rose and Jim Irwin from the Southern District of Florida and long time shuffleboard enthusiasts. Their summer residence is near Liverpool, NS.
They were both instrumental in a very big way with getting the Saltwater Shuffleboard Club (SSC) off the ground in 2008/9. Both Jim & Rose went to every Inter-Provincial tournament but one I believe. Both very strong supporters of shuffling everywhere.

Jim was willing to do whatever it took to get things going and he helped us tremendously in many ways throughout the whole time SSC has been operational, until last year when COVID-19 stopped us all in our tracks.
Jim suffered dementia in his last few years but never lost his sense of fellowship and good nature. We shall miss him.

Glenna Earle.
