This picture makes me smile. This is Irving. He is one of the most adored men I know – and for very good reason. Irving is the father of Brooklyn Boy Bobby, grandfather of Dany and overall patriarch of the entire Brooklyn Boy family. He is the silliest and most youthful 94 year-old man you’ll ever meet. Also the most generous, warm and kind-spirited. He is the heart and soul of the Brooklyn Boys and the major reason this wonderful tradition lives on year after year. Irving – you are loved and cherished by all of us! Don’t ever change!
