  • Biographical Sketch: James Allen Irwin, aka "Jim Mac," passed away Tuesday, October 3, 2017, in Lincoln, NE. He was 57.

    Jim was born in Lincoln on April 14, 1960, to Neil and Beverly (Kasl) Irwin. As an "Air Force brat," Jim moved a number of times until Junior High when he ultimately landed back in Lincoln, upon his dad being permanently stationed at Offutt Air Force Base.

    Jim worked many years for Jacob North Printing Company, before returning to school later in life to receive his degree as a Respiratory Therapy Technician.

    Jim, a lover of the Grateful Dead, had been to over 100 Dead shows in his life (he lost count). Jim, a humble man with a soft heart, was always ready to help friends and strangers however he could. Jim was a handy guy who could fix almost anything and worked very hard. Most of all, Jim adored his children and was always known to be a very good listener. Those who met him always commented on his kindness and gentle ways. Jim will be greatly missed.

    Jim is survived by his mother, Beverly Irwin; daughters: Amber (Randy) Bax, Andrea (Blake Travis) Irwin, Jamie (Mathias Campbell) Irwin, and their mother, Theresa Riggs; son Jacob Irwin, and Jacob's mother, Betsy Bergman; grandchildren: Jasmyn, Isaac, Ryleigh, Kayana, Natalie, and Bryson; lifelong best friend Dave Connett, along with other countless friends who all deeply loved and respected Jim. Jim was preceded in death by his father, Neil, and his brother, Tom.

    I am so sorry to learn of the passing of Jim Irwin, as I worked at Jacob North Printing Company, processing the payroll. I remember Jim very fondly as he always had a smile on his face and was always willing to help others in any way he could. I was so happy to learn he had returned to school to become a Respiratory Therapy Technician...employment that was very fitting for him, as he enjoyed being around people and helping. Take care and Cherish your Memories, as they become fonder with each passing day.
