Irv was born and raised in Paducah and lived most of his life in Paducah except for ten years when he lived in Washington, DC to be close to his daughter's family.  Irv was a realtor and businessman in Kentucky, but was probably best known as the owner of Party Mart - Paducah's Most Interesting Store, which he operated for 20 years.  Irv was an active member of Temple Israel and volunteered for many causes.  He enjoyed being around friends and family, loved a good BBQ, and had an infectious laugh.  


Services and internment will be held at Judean Memorial Gardens in Maryland on Wednesday, May 25th and a memorial service will be held Memorial Day weekend in Paducah, KY.
