Hawaii 50

Irick Pearl Harbor vacation

The Rev. Ronald Irick of West Liberty, second from right, was able to check off traveling to all 50 states from his bucket list with a trip to Hawaii with sons, from left, Jason, Daniel and Tom. They are holding the Examiner at Pearl Harbor with the battleship USS Arizona in the background. The trip was made to honor the boys’ late grandfather, Robert A. Irick, a veteran of World War II, and their grandmother, Phyllis Irick of Green Hills. They also visited the local Boy Scout office and Operating Engineers Local 3.
