Edward C. Irby, Sr.
Of course, fishing, antiques, poker, bridge, gin, hearts, and a good box of chocolates always blurred the lines between like and love.
He was very proud to have had the opportunity along with his brothers to be Army Strong during WWII -- and we all take pride in the service to our country that he and his brothers made.
Following in his Dad's footsteps he served as the Banker of the Town for many years; taking early retirement in order to fish and work his antique business.
Ned said to many that when his time to go came he just wanted to be put in his boat and pushed out. We cannot honor it quite that way; but there will be a brief and simple graveside service in the Kenbridge Cemetery at 2PM on Wednesday, 6/23.
Donations in lieu of flowers may be sent to Lunenburg Health Service -- which his father was instrumental in founding -- may be sent to PO BOX 121, Victoria, VA 23974 or online to www.lunenburghealthservice.org
