Timothy “Tim” Wayne Irwin
Dec 25 1964 – Sep 14, 2021
PORTAGE, IN – Timothy “Tim” Wayne Irwin, 56, of Portage, IN passed away on Tuesday September 14, 2021 surrounded by his family. Timothy was born on December 25, 1964 to the late Ernest and Charlotte Lucille (Jones) Irwin in Hammond, IN.
If anyone knew Tim, he knew he was a unique American guy. He was proud of his heritage and the country in which he lived. After graduating from Hammond Tech, Timothy spent 34 years with Griffith Foods in Alsip, IL. His work ethic was as strong as his charismatic personality. Tim’s accomplishments were endless. Those he was proud of received the Einstein Prize and became an ordained minister. His family will miss his sense of humor, his selflessness and his fantastic way with words. Tim will always be loved by everyone who knew him. He spent a lot of time giving and caring for others. His time has been shared volunteering for charities to help veterans, and through his membership in AVMRA, the Joe B. Foundation is where much of his selflessness has been donated. Other hobbies included motorcycles, guns, shooting, and making memories with friends and family. He entered this world with nothing, and left an impact so great, that it will be impossible to forget him.
He is survived by his beloved wife, Bonnie Jean Irwin; children: David (Denise) McClure, Jennifer (Jeff) Dobos, Timi-Ashley (Curtis) Irwin, Danielle Kramer, Tony (Jessica) Kramer, Dana Bellamy; 15 grandchildren including one on the way; Siblings: Julie (Mike) Knight, Charlena (Pete) Torres, Jeff Irwin, Renee (Mike) Young, as well as several nieces, nephews and a host of friends.
He is welcomed into eternity by his parents: Ernest Irwin and Charlotte Squires; and brothers: Danny Irwin and Robby Irwin.
