After a mercifully short battle with pancreatic cancer, Irvin Quale passed on September 8th, 2016 at the age of 83.
Born in 1933 in Eastern Montana, he left the family farm after high school to join the Air Force where he maintained B-29 Bombers. After getting a degree from Utah State, Boeing hired him and secured his services for 32 years.
Once retired, Irv set his sights on trailering and building houses. He loved using his talents to help others in the community. Quick to make friends, Irv loved to get to know people wherever he went especially during his rounds of the local thrift stores and coffee shops.
Irv is survived by his wife, Nancy, 3 sons and a daughter. We will miss his signature eye twinkle that always appeared with a warm handshake greeting a friend, when playing with his grandkids or when reminiscing with his brothers. He will forever be in our hearts.
