I was so saddened to learn of the passing of this wonderful man, Irwin Zagoren. I have many memories of family get-togethers, through the cousins club, family events and beyond. I have thought of him often and had been wondering how he was when I stumbled upon this news. He was such a kind man and I loved his smile :) My condolences to everyone. He will not be forgotten.

I just learned of the passing of Irwin. Irwin was such a wonderful kind hearted gentleman who always had a joke to tell me. I will miss his smile and his quick witt. My deepest sympathies to Irwin's family, he spoke of you to me all the time.

Steve & family of Irwin,
So sorry to hear of the passing of Irwin. I have so many fond memories of talking with Irwin and receiving many lessons in life from his kind heart. Irwin was always ready to talk to all the younger kids at WWHS. Rest in Peace Irwin----job well done.

Dear Mrs. Zagoren and family; I was just looking through the Middletown Press Obituaries in search of a friends mother when I saw this. I am sorry to learn of Irwin's passing. My heart is sad that I am just finding this out and was not at his service to support you. I will always remember Irwin as a dear neighbor and a wonderful man. I will share this with my sisters who I know will feel as I do.

Dear Mrs Zagoren, Jeffrey and Barbara...I am so very sorry to hear of the passing of Mr. Zagoren. He was always so friendly to me, MaryRose and Eddie as kids growing up as your backyard neighbors. I'll always remember him riding his sit down lawn mower...and letting us go sledding down your backyard as kids. May all your wonderful memories comfort you during this difficult time. Sincerely, Geline Resnisky O'Connor

Lenore I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Irwin at One MacDonough Place, and would also see you and him sometimes in the hospital cafeteria. He was such a good guy and will be missed.

Lee and Steve,

My brother and I are deeply saddened by Irwin's passing. We can't remember a time when Irwin was not part of our CAI family.
