    I loved my daily discussions of Literature I had for 20 years or so with Ira and talking about the love of his life Frankie! He will be remembered for his humor and deep thoughts.

    Ira and I started work at Air Pollution Control close to the same time back in 1976. Our mutual friend T. S Reddy encouraged us to join APC. Ira was an avid reader, great photographer. He shared he developed his writing skills at Austin Peay University. I recall he was in his element photography with his ideal job in Desert Storm. I hope his photos can be shared. I recall he and Frankie narrowly missed the aftermath of a downed pilots plane in Antioch that killed some neighbors close on Luna Drive. I recall Ira was straight to the point well read and always ready to assist his colleagues at APC with the audio visual aids. I will miss Ira and my condolences Frankie.
