Kenneth Herbert Irion, 82, of Bay City, our loving, honest, and most wonderful husband, father, grandpa, brother, uncle, and friend was called Home on Sunday, May 27, 2018 at McLaren Bay Region.


Kenny was born in Unionville on September 18, 1935, the son of the late Herbert and Maria (Bohn) Irion. He met the former Ruth Meyers and knew right away she was the one for him. They dated, fell in love, and were united in marriage on April 11, 1959. Their 59 years were blessed with countless memories and love. Kenneth retired from General Motors - Saginaw Steering Gear and enjoyed woodworking and fishing, especially perch. He was known for his wonderful wood clocks and in his younger years enjoyed camping and time spent on the pontoon. Kenneth was a member of Immanuel Lutheran Church and will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.


He leaves to cherish his memory, his devoted wife, Ruth Irion and their two children: Valerie and husband, Wayne Hogan and Alan Irion. Kenny was the beloved grandpa of Devin and Kelsie Hogan and is also survived by his sister, Donna Irion, along with many nieces and nephews.
