Charles ''Chuck'' L. Irvin
March 2, 1935 - April 29, 2006



From such humble beginnings, Charles (Chuck) L. Irvin, Esquire, was born on March 2, 1935 to Joseph Irving and Louise Freeland Irving in Corpus Christi, Texas. He died on April 29, 2006 at the age of 71.

Chuck was a graduate of Solomon M. Coles High School in Corpus Christi, Texas. He received a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1961 and a Doctor of Laws in 1964, both from Texas Southern University. He began his law career in the office of the Solicitor, U.S. Department of Labor in Kansas City, Missouri and Chicago, Illinois from 1964 until 1973. He joined Texaco’s legal department in Chicago in 1974 as an attorney. After assignments in the departments of Houston and Harrison, NY offices, he was appointed Senior Attorney in Houston in 1982 where he served as the head of the litigation section. In March, 1988, he became the Division Attorney in the Midland, Texas office of the Legal Dept. of Texaco, Inc. His advancement at Texaco was quick to Staff Attorney, Division Attorney, Regional Counsel to Managing Attorney, Administration. He took early retirement in September 1994, and moved back to Texas. He started consulting with Star Enterprises in 1995, and went on to open up a private law practice in Conroe for two years.

Chuck was a loving father, grandfather, husband, brother, and uncle. He was a man for all seasons. He was kind, fair, stern, generous, but more than anything else, he was a mentor to young attorneys and youth in general. He is survived by a devoted wife of 42 years, Shirley Smith Irvin; a daughter, Kimberley A. Irvin; son, Jonathan Charles Irvin and wife Jennifer; a precious grandson, Ian Charles Irvin; and sisters, Otho Jean Bradshaw and Rose Marie Sayles. A host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends also survive.

There will be a viewing on Wednesday, May 3, 2006 from 8 a.m. to 12 noon, and a memorial service at 12:30 p.m. in Cashner Colonial Chapel with Chaplain Tammy Sheets officiating. Per Charles’s request, he will be cremated.
