Irving Bernard Kahn
March 8, 1922 – March 28, 2018
The Cohen, Konheim and Martin families mourn the passing of their beloved “Poppa Irv” in the early hours of March 28, 2018.
He was preceded in death by his adored wife, Gloria, to whom he was married for 51 years.
A natural athlete, Irv was nick-named “Lucky Kahn” when he played varsity baseball at Beverly Hills High School. A member of ZBT Fraternity at USC, his college career was cut short by his enlistment in the US Navy during World War II where he saw active duty in the Pacific Theater, most notably in the Battle of Leyte Gulf.
Irv was a pioneer in technical film syndication. His career spanned the inception of kinescopes to Beta, VHS and DVD formats.
He is survived by his daughters Bonnie (Bruce), Joan (Robert) and Laurie (Lyn), grandchildren David (Autumn) Caroline and Jonathan (Dana) and 5 great granddaughters.
We appreciate the loving attention shown to him by his caregivers, Marcia Parlato and Debbie Rowland .
