  8. Irvin was a great mentor and gave me some thoughtful advise during my time as President of the North Dakota Stockmen’s association. I will always treasure it. His wisdom and kind demeanor are rare qualities and didn’t go unnoticed. He will be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to Mark and all of the Huseth family and I hope you are able to celebrate the good life of a good man.

  9. I was so sorry to hear of Irvin’s passing. I am also sorry that I will not be able to join you at the Memorial service because I am currently in San Diego with my daughter and her family. Irvin was one of my favorite people. He was a warm and friendly person who always had time for everyone. I have memories of Irvin’s gentle teasing of Myra, always done with love and respect. Irvin’s positive attitude and general caring for others was evident in everything he did, whether serving the community or interacting with individuals. Irvin had a great sense of humor and always had a story or two to share. He had a great laugh, and loved to have others join in with him. I always enjoyed my opportunities to have a conversation with Irvin, in the later years only at birthday celebrations for Amy and Harry. I never missed an opportunity to spend time catching up and hearing a few stories. I believe I have known Irvin and Myra my entire life, and will treasure the memories I have. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers. Irvin will be missed by many.

  10. With our deepest sympathy. I have so many fond memories of Irvin from working with him on various projects at ND Stockmen’s Association. Lifting you up in prayer.

  11. Aunt Myra, Mark, Marsha, & Jimmy – We are so saddened about Uncle Irvin’s passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time. We have such wonderful memories of him when we were all able to get together, whether on the farm or here in California. He had such a warm, loving, and welcoming presence whenever we were together. His strength and steadfast determination, along with his ever-smiling personality was an inspiration to all of us. He truly shared his zest for life with those around him. Thinking of him brings to mind a short saying – ” Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised …… It would be worth it! ” He certainly made it worth it for his family. We will miss him.

  12. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your Family, Myra. We have many good memories of visiting with you, our day trip to Mexico when we were both wintering in Arizona. Don and Irvin really liked to talk “old times”. Our deepest sympathy to you and may God comfort you. Irvin will surely be missed by all who knew him.

  13. Cousins Myra, Marsha, Mark and Jim, Lana and I want to extend our best wishes to you and your entire family relationship on the loss of Irvin. We know the pain of loss. We thank Jimmy for his comments. I knew Irvin best as a teen ager when I worked at the farm for a couple of summers. Irving was a good role model for me but I also knew the “look” whenever I screwed up. I especially appreciated when he let me ride Buck during the round up in October. We have good memories of our family visits to the farm. We remember well Pete and Mary, Johnny and Julia, Allen and many others. Irvin had a very good life with a great family. So we say good bye and God speed. Neal and Lana

  14. Uncle Irvin….we will miss you and will always remember your kindness, your smile and laugh, your sincerity, and and firmness on matters. I enjoyed coming to the farm for so many summers, even if for a short time. Mom loved you so much as we do too…..Take care up there !!
    Sincerely, Jack Schmit
