Irwin Ketroser, of Edina, passed away on August 30, 2021. Preceded in death by parents, Bessie Krasner Ketroser and David Ketroser; wife, Grace Ketroser; sons, Robert “Bob” Ketroser, and David Ketroser. Survived by daughters, Diane (Patrick) Thurlow and Heidi Massey; daughter in law, Jane Ketroser; 7 grandchildren; 2 great grandchildren; and Irwin’s long-time aide who was a part of the family, Tommi Proue. Irwin, aka Dad, aka Grandpa, aka Papa lived 98 years full of family, good fortune, lots of sports, and some challenging losses. He grew up in North Minneapolis on what we all know must have been the biggest neighborhood ever. He served in the Navy in World War II and went on to create a bustling law practice. He was smitten with Grace from the moment they met at the University of Minnesota. They married and went on to have 4 children together. Irwin was incredibly disciplined with his health, he would visit the gym during his work day early in his career, long before any sort of fitness craze took off. He was still a regular exerciser in the last weeks of his life. He also loved delicious food and had a real sweet tooth but nothing made him happier than a meal with his family. Irwin was a sports fan extraordinaire. He was a loyal fan and early season ticket holder for the Minnesota Vikings. He and Grace loved going to games and meeting up with Grace’s brother, Leon Latz whose seats were nearby. He always had a special place in his heart for young children and relished seeing his youngest great- grandchild in his final days before passing.
