REID, Irvine J. (Irv)
(March 19, 1931 - April 19, 2019) -
Passed away peacefully at Trillium Health Centre, Mississauga in his 89th year. Beloved husband of Rosamond (Rose) for 55 years. Dear father of Laura (Bryan Martin) and Valerie (Stephen Preston). Dear brother of Richard (Bernice) of Ottawa, brother-in-law of Bill Spence (the late Beverley) and uncle, great-uncle and great-great-uncle. Irv had a forty year career with TCA/Air Canada and retired in 1989. Irv started in stores and maintenance. The last twenty-five years of his career was in Flight Operations. He was a longtime Maple Leaf Gardens ticket holder, Argos and Blue Jay Supporter. At the time of his passing, Irv still held many dear friends from his youth. A true testament to his character. The family wishes to thank the entire staff of the Fourth Floor Stroke Unit for their kindness and excellent care, as well as Reverend Dr. Paul Shepherd of Martin Grove United Church, for his kind support. The family will receive their friends at NEWEDIUK FUNERAL HOME, KIPLING CHAPEL, 2058 Kipling Avenue (North of Rexdale Boulevard), on Tuesday, April 23, 2019 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. and Wednesday, April 24, 2019 from 12 p.m. until Memorial Service in the funeral home chapel at 1 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, Diabetes Canada, Trillium Health Network or the organization of your choice would be appreciated.

To Rose, Laura & Valerie; Our deepest sympathy on the loss of a great man. May you find strength in the coming days. I have heard many stories about how Irvine was an amazing father to Val & Laura and the proof is in the way they have turned into exceptional young ladies. I am sending our love and support during this time of grief, and this thought ; "Grief is the price we pay for love" (By Queen Elizabeth II). Knowing how much everyone loved your dad, i can only imagine how deep your grief is. Be strong and bask in the great memories that you will hear over the next few days. Love The Tranmer's

Dear Rose, Laura and Val,
I am so sorry for your loss. I am smiling through tears today, thinking of long ago Portugal, and our almond cake "garlic bread" and calamari "onion rings". What happy times and memories. Wish I could be with you, Irv you are sorely missed. Norma Martin

Laura I never met your Dad but heard lots of good things about him from Jessie Tyrrell. He was her boss apparently and very well liked and respected by the staff. My deepest symphony you and your family on your loss. Joan Buell

Rose. You and Irv were wonderful supporters and mentors for Gary and me in our early married life. Always enjoyed our visits together here in Nova Scotia and with you both in Toronto. Thinking of you, Laura and Valerie at this time, Joan
