Aaron Irvin went home to be with his blessed savior on September 15, 2013. He was predeceased by his father, Leroy Irvin and his two brothers, Samlie Irvin and Leroy Irvin Jr. He is survived by his wife, Sharon Irvin, and four daughters, Ava, Jennifer and son-in-law Tim, Kimberly and son-in-law Nelson, and Danielle and fiancé Tiffany, his mother, Rebecca Irvin and his sister, Arabella Ross, his precious grandchildren, Chante, Terrence, Tiana, Michael, Lucas, Caleb, and Bella and eight great-grandchildren and a host of Aunts, Uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins. Born in Aiken, South Carolina, he moved to Philadelphia as a child. After his education in Philadelphia, he joined the Marine Corps. Shortly after that he attended tractor-trailer driving school. Aaron was a tractor-trailer driver for 40 years, working for Factor Truck Service, Atkinson Freight Lines, and as an owner operator for JEVIC Transportation, and many other companies. He drove charter bus tours for the Lion Tours for the Lion Tours Bus Company for two years. Aaron worked extraordinarily hard, taking on more whenever asked to do so. When he was not working, he was a man of simple needs, spending time with his family, and playing with his grandkids at home. He enjoyed good home cooking, and planning future menus. An Avid sports fan, his favorites were football, basketball, tennis, and wrestling. He was known for his gift of gab, and would talk non-stop at times, even to people he did not know. His friendly nature drew people to him and made them feel comfortable. He will be most fondly remembered for his love and dedication to his wife and daughters and his willingness to help others. At the onset of his illness, he was on his way to Truth Baptist Church to help with their food pantry ministry, as he did every Tuesday. He will be missed terribly by all those who loved him.
Relatives and friends are invited to attend Aaron’s life celebration service on Saturday, September 21, 2013 at 3:00 PM at Edgely Christian Church 1119 Edgely Avenue Bristol, PA 19007
