Well, I was shocked and saddened when I heard of the passing of John.  We were in band together through high school.  He was always so nice, on the quiet side and very talented.  My thoughts and prayers to his family.

Although I didn't know him well in high school, I knew who he was. So, when I moved into the dorm room at the UofA I was stunned to turn around and see John Irwin standing in the doorway. He was right across the hall.

Getting to know John was a tremendous honor. Although we became friends, I admired him greatly.  He had it all---Hollywood good looks, a brilliant mind, a great personality and one who ALWAYS found the humor in things.

Playing pingpong till 3 a.m., the look on his face while trying to tutor me in Calculus before a test and watching him turn into a fairly decent basketball player are some of the fond memories of my life and I will always miss him...
