The City of Dauphin confirms the sudden passing of Mayor Eric Irwin, Friday, November 24, 2017, while on vacation with his family in Florida. The cause of his death is unknown at this time.
City Council, Administration, and the citizens of Dauphin express condolences to the family and friends on his passing.
Mayor Irwin loved his family and his community. His leadership brought many projects in our community to fruition – from fund raising to facility planning. He provided leadership to many organizations in our community, most recently as president of Dauphin Consumer’s Coop and Dauphin’s Countryfest, and as an active member and former president of Rotary.
As Mayor, his leadership provided financial stability and projects that offered growth to the community within budgetary constraints. His visionary ability will be missed. His passing creates a void in our community, but offers inspiration to carry out his vision.
City Administration, in consultation the provincial government, will meet in the coming week to develop a plan going forward.
