Ivan “Irv” Bitterfield

Originally from Philadelphia; he left home at the age of 17 to join the Air Force and had the opportunity to spend time in Japan and traveling the US. During his time in the service, he was fortunate enough to be stationed at Scott Air Force base for a brief time which enabled him to meet his future wife Sharon Silk while attending a USO dance.

After leaving the Air Force he spent many years in the jewelry industry both as a salesman and the owner of Yorkshire Jewelers until his retirement. He was a friend to all!

He is survived by his wife Sharon, his children and their spouses; Debra (Glen Gelber), Stacey (Don Wyatt), Andrew (Bridget) Bitterfield and his grandchildren Casey, Samantha and Jacob.

Due to the current health situation, the service will be private. Contributions in his memory may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association, 9370 Olive Blvd., St. Louis, MO, 63132.
