Irving G. Shinosky, 88, ship's welder, veteran


Irving George Shinosky, a retired ship's welder who was active in Little League, died of complications from Parkinson's disease Wednesday at his residence in the Lake Shore section of Pasadena. He was 88.

Born in Scranton, Pa., he moved to Baltimore nearly 60 years ago after serving in the Army during World War II.

Before his retirement more than 30 years ago, he was a Maryland Drydock Co. welder at Fairfield.

Active in Brooklyn-Curtis Bay Little League, Mr. Shinosky had been a coach, manager and umpire.

No services are planned.

Survivors include two daughters, Barbara Ann Holt and Joan Frances Trobinger, both of Pasadena; a sister, Frances Steedman of Brownsburg, Ind.; four grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren; and four great-great-grandchildren. His wife of 50 years, the former Hilda Wanagitis, died in 1989.
