RIP: Andy Irons 1978 – 2010

by The Editors on November 14, 2010

Ai Rip

Today, as thousands gather at Pine Trees on the shore of Kauai’s Hanalei Bay at 11 AM HST to remember son, brother, husband, and three-time ASP World Champion, Andy Irons, our thoughts are with the Irons family; specifically his parents Phil and Danielle, brother Bruce, and pregnant wife Lyndie.

Only parents who have lost a child, and those who have endured the death of an older brother or husband will understand the depth of loss the Irons family has been feeling since learning of Andy’s death on November 2, 2010.

Today will be difficult for everyone. Wherever you are at 11 AM HST, (1 PM PST, 2 PM CST, or 3 PM EST), please stop and take a minute or two to send positive thoughts to the Irons family.
