His friend Saori Tsukada has posted a fundraising page to pay for his funeral expenses:
It was in the middle of the heatwave on June 30, 2021, Thomas McIntyre a.k.a IRISH was sitting on one of the porches on E 3rd street just like any other day when his heart failed. The ambulance was called and took him to Beth Israel but he did not come back.
It was so sudden that it is still hard to comprehend that he is really gone. In the meantime, his surviving wife Lisa, is desperately trying to give Irish a proper funeral service in the neighborhood that he loved. I am one of the neighbors who had the opportunity to get to know him better over the years and I am helping to make that wish come true.
