Obituary for Alan D. Irwin

Alan Donald Irwin died suddenly at his home in Lake Orion, MI on April 1, 2016. He was born in Cody, Wyoming on October 4, 1946 to Donald W. and Francis N. Irwin. His sister Vickie gladly welcomed him. Alan attended school in Cody, graduating from Cody High School in 1965. He attended the University of Wyoming where he became a member of Phi Gamma Delta fraternity.

He married Ruth Hitchcock in January of 1969. After graduating from the UW School of Pharmacy, Alan joined the staff of Poudre Valley Hospital in Fort Collins, Colorado where he served in the pharmacy in numerous capacities for over 40 years. He helped give advanced medical care in Northern Colorado by embracing new technology as it came along and then implementing these technologies in the growing Poudre Valley Health System.

Alan loved the out-of-doors. He was a graceful skier and adventurous hiker. An avid amateur, scenic photographer, Alan has left a large body of work that captures the beauty of many national parks in the West. He is loved dearly and will be greatly missed by his sister Vickie Scott of Naples, FL, his wife of 47 years, Ruth, son Richard of Rochester Hills, MI, daughter Cynthia and her husband Nevin Hubbard, as well as his three grandchildren: Dawson, Jonathan and Kate, who live in Lake Orion.
