By contributor,

Irving H. Titus, 91, of Hopkinton, passed away peacefully at home with family by his side on Saturday, June 29, 2024. Born in Centreville, Nova Scotia, Canada, he was the son of the late Flora (O’Neil) and Herbert Titus. He was the husband of over 50 years to the late Edna (Graham) Titus.

Born and raised in a small fishing village in Nova Scotia, Irving earned his living from the sea. In the mid 1950’s, he moved to Hopkinton. Always a devoted family man, he worked both selflessly and tirelessly to provide for his loved ones. In the mid 1990’s, Irving retired from Fenwall in Ashland.

Irving is survived by twin daughters Deborah Peddle of Bellingham and Darlene Montville of Hopkinton. He was the proud grandfather to Eric Montville, Brandon Peddle, Kari Rose (Montville) Bailey and husband Fred, Kelsey (Peddle) Rapas and husband Kyle. He also leaves his great-grandchildren, Elliana, Annalise, Nora and baby Matthew. He was a father figure to stepdaughter Donna (Wright) Lowell and had a close bond with stepsons Donald Wright and the late Douglas Wright. Irving was also loved and adored by their respective families. Irving is predeceased by all 10 of his siblings, but leaves behind many cherished nieces and nephews from his home province of Nova Scotia. And finally, he leaves behind his faithful companion of 15 years – his beloved dog Noelle.
