Moving on: The Irving family suffered two major losses last year with the death of J. E. (Jack) Irving, son of the legendary K. C. Irving, and the indefinite medical leave taken by his nephew Kenneth. But the empire is steaming ahead. Irving Shipbuilding is competing for one of two federal government contracts to build combat ships and non-military vessels. The larger contract, worth $25 billion, ensures 30 years of work for the winning shipyard, and will be awarded before the end of the year.
