Jamie Thompson Irvine, IV

June 10, 1939 ~ September 27, 2023

Jamie Thompson Irvine IV, 84, passed away peacefully at his home in Vero Beach, FL on Wednesday September 27, 2023, surrounded by his family.

 

Born on June 10,1939 in St. Louis, MO to Jamie T. Irvine III and Kathryn (Waychoff) Irvine, Jamie spent his childhood in Old Greenwich, CT. He later settled in Darien, CT where he raised his family.

 

He attended The Williston Northampton School where he was the President of his class. He continued his education at the University of Virginia where he was a member of St. Elmo Hall (Delta Phi Fraternity). He went on to attend business school at the Thunderbird School of Global Management. He then worked as an insurance executive in New York, holding roles at Johnson & Higgins and Carroon and Black.

 

An avid sailor, Jamie participated in many East Coast regattas including the Block Island Race and the Bermuda Race. One of his proudest accomplishments was racing the original maxi yacht, Stormvogel, across the Atlantic Ocean. He was a member of the New York Yacht Club and also a longtime member of the Riverside Dyer Dinghy Association. He spent most of his winter weekends frostbiting.

 

Jamie, better known as “Turbs” by his closest friends, was known for his contagious personality and lived a full and energetic life. At home he was often outdoors in his bountiful vegetable garden, growing tomato plants from seed over the winter which he delivered to friends in the spring. He was also an excellent cook – baking bread or making chili which was enjoyed in front of a roaring fire, watching favorite sports events with family and friends. Jamie was an avid tennis player and golfer, and played paddle tennis in the winter months; “I got it!” was a constant refrain on the courts.

 

One of his favorite events that is a fond memory for all who participated was the “Turkey Day Paddle” tournament. Started with just four players, this annual event grew to a full forty player roster, hosted Thanksgiving Day morning for nearly twenty years. Donations from the event went to support many local organizations.

 

He is survived by his beloved wife of 41 years, Alicia (Cici) Irvine; and children Kathryn (Trevor) Tasker, Alicia (Michael) Pizzi, Katie (Brian) Hastreiter, and Victoria (Frederick) Klorczyk. He is also survived by his 5 grandchildren.

 

A private family service will be held in his memory.

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
