Irwin Tulchin passed away December 17, 2018 at Yale New Haven Hospital, St. Raphael’s campus after a brief illness. Irwin was affectionately known as Izzy to his friends. Born May 20, 1929 in Brooklyn, NY, he was a son of the late Abraham and Margaret Calamari Tulchin. His family moved to West Haven when Irwin was 11 years old and he remained a lifelong West Haven resident. Irwin leaves his wife of 62 years, Beverly Lynn Tulchin, 4 children Peggy (Dave) White, Retired WSFD Charlie (Barbara) Tulchin, Bonnie (Richard) Mahmood , Robert Tulchin, 7 grandchildren Danny, Melissa, Stephanie, Kirsten, Jeremy, Rick and Lori, 11 great grandchildren and 5 great-great grandchildren. In addition to his parents, Irwin is predeceased by his siblings Paul Tulchin and Marcia Bonito and his uncle Frank (Panky) Calamari.
Irwin joined the West Haven Police Department in 1957 and served for 29 years retiring as a sergeant. He was captain of the West Haven Police Dept. Pistol Team, a group that he created. He liked “walking the beat”, working 3rd shift so that during the day he could enjoy softball, horseshoes, fishing, shooting pool and bowling. He bowled 5 perfect 300 games, the last one at age 70. He also loved riding motorcycles in his younger days and more recently, taking trips to the casinos. For many years, he played Santa Claus, bringing holiday joy to many. He loved spending time with family, friends and especially his grandchildren. Irwin will be truly missed but our loving memories will bring us joy, love and happiness.
Visitation will take place on THURSDAY (TODAY) from 5 to 7 pm at the West Haven Funeral Home at the green. On Friday morning a service will be held at the funeral home at 10 o’clock. Interment will follow in Oak Grove Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the American Heart Association 1 Union Street, Suite 301 Robbinsville, NJ 08691.
