Irving Titus

Irving H. Titus, 91, of Hopkinton passed away peacefully at home with family by his side on June 29. Born in Centreville, Nova Scotia, Canada, he was the son of the late Flora (O’Neil) and Herbert Titus. He was the husband of over 50 years to the late Edna (Graham) Titus.

Born and raised in a small fishing village in Nova Scotia, Irving earned his living from the sea. In the mid 1950s, he moved to Hopkinton. Always a devoted family man, he worked both selflessly and tirelessly to provide for his loved ones. In the mid 1990s, Irving retired from Fenwall in Ashland.

Irving is survived by twin daughters Deborah Peddle of Bellingham and Darlene Montville of Hopkinton. He was the proud grandfather to Eric Montville, Brandon Peddle, Kari Rose (Montville) Bailey and husband Fred, and Kelsey (Peddle) Rapas and husband Kyle. He also leaves his great-grandchildren, Elliana, Annalise, Nora and baby Matthew. He was a father figure to stepdaughter Donna (Wright) Lowell and had a close bond with stepsons Donald Wright and the late Douglas Wright. Irving also was loved and adored by their respective families. Irving is predeceased by all 10 of his siblings but leaves behind many cherished nieces and nephews from his home province of Nova Scotia. And finally, he leaves behind his faithful companion of 15 years, his beloved dog Noelle.

Private family services will be held in Nova Scotia and Hopkinton. In lieu of flowers, donations in Irving’s memory may be made to Baypath Humane Society, 500 Legacy Farms North Road, Hopkinton, MA 01748 or baypathhumane.org.

Arrangements are under the care of the Chesmore Funeral Home of Hopkinton.

    What a lovely neighbor he was. I saw him almost daily, and he always was ready with a smile and a wave. I will miss seeing him.
