. Irving Oil’s founder K.C. Irving, opened his first garage and service station in his hometown of Bouctouche, New Brunswick, in 1924. Living just next door to the station, he was always on the job, looking after customers day and night. He is well remembered for helping customers who honked their horns for service — even in the middle of the night — to fuel up and continue on their journey.
