Irving Roschelle, of Hartsdale, NY (formerly Eastchester, NY) died on November 2, 2020 at the age of 93.
Irving served briefly in the US Army at the end of World War II and again briefly at the end of the Korean War. He later became active in the Jewish War Veterans and served as Commander of his post for one term. Irving and his late brother Sheldon Roschelle owned a small retail business together for over 30 years. After retiring, he continued to focus on the business world, having an intellectual curiosity about technology even if he did not master it himself. Irving had a passion for playing bridge. He took pride in watching his grandchildren play sports, enjoyed traveling and had a photographic memory of anywhere he had ever visited. Irving found joy in all types of performing arts and was gifted at singing and dancing. He had a keen sense of humor which brought joy to those around him. An active participant at Shaarei Tikvah, his warm smile greeted his fellow congregants and he relished this community. But above all else, his greatest joy was spending time with his friends, his family and especially his grandchildren. Irving will be remembered for his easy going, kind, optimistic and loving way he lived his life.
Irving was the beloved husband of the late Miriam Kostiner Roschelle. Devoted father, he is survived by Marlene Roschelle of Hartsdale, NY, Sandy Roschelle and her husband Peter Darlow of Acton, MA, and Mitch Roschelle and his wife Debbie Roschelle of Armonk, NY. Adoring grandfather of Ryan Darlow and his fiancé Meghan Arpino of Waterbury, VT, Lindsay Darlow of Acton, MA, Sam and Jake Roschelle of Armonk, NY. Loving uncle to numerous nieces and nephews.
