Wally Irvine

Wallace E. Irvine, known by all as “Wally,” passed away peacefully on Aug. 31 at the age of 92. Son of the late Hazel (Lougee) and Arthur E. Irvine, he was born and lived in Hopkinton most of his life. He spent the past two years with his daughter Nancy and her family in North Carolina, where they spent many happy days together.

Wally was an extremely friendly man and knew most everyone in town. He truly loved living in Hopkinton. He was very generous and helped anyone in need. He had a great sense of humor and was very positive about life. He lived his life caring and loving his family, always putting them first. He loved golfing and enjoyed watching football. He was a talented car machinist and handyman. Wally worked at Fenwal Electronics in Framingham for 25 years as a purchasing manager. After retiring, he went into business with his son John, building homes.

Wally is survived by daughter Nancy Mooradian and husband David, and granddaughter Nicole Mooradian, all of Clemmons, North Carolina; granddaughter Laura Courage and husband David; great-granddaughters Bella and Olivia Courage of Carver; grandson Adam Irvine and wife Sally of Southbridge; and grandson James Irvine of Fall River. In addition, he leaves sister Hazel Johnson of North Grafton and many nieces and nephews from the very large Irvine family. Wally is predeceased by son John Irvine (2019), first wife Mary Irvine (1996) and second wife Alberta Irvine (2020).

A funeral service will be held Saturday, Sept. 23, at 11:30 a.m. at Faith Community Church in Hopkinton, with a luncheon to follow in the church. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the American Heart Association at heart.org. Arrangements are under the care of the Chesmore Funeral Home of Hopkinton.
