Irving was born and raised on his parent's farm in Upton, Ma. He graduated from Upton High School.

After the death of his father he inherited the family farm, and his brothers inherited the livestock, this was to ensure the brothers would always be welcome at the family farm. Irving and his brothers were always very close, helping each other out whenever they needed it.

Besides dairy products they also sold pork, chickens, fruits and vegetables, hay, timber, cords of wood, and gravel. It was one of the largest farms in the South Upton area.
It was a very prosperous farm until the depression of 1928.
Some of their customers, at that time, worked at the farm, in exchange for food.

Most of their children had to come back home, and find whatever kind of work they were lucky enough to get.
At least there was always food on the table, friends and relatives were always welcome.

This picture looks a lot like the pine trees that lined the road, on the side of the barn.
