Even though he could have worked anywhere in the world, he wanted to focus his talents on our area so we could have better roads, bridges, and parks. He especially wanted to make Schafer Road better for the community. His passion was to increase his knowledge of anything and everything. He was very knowledgeable in all subjects and was able to store information in his mind and then apply it as needed and used it to help people. He used his knowledge to tutor his sister, brothers, cousins, and others. Isaac did not care about material possessions but if he saw you needed anything, he would give it to you. He loved to kayak, swim, and hike. He enjoyed gun and bow target practice with his brothers and sister at his grandfather's house. Isaac looked up to his grandpa Jerry for direction and had great respect for him. They understood each other well and had a special connection. One of his favorite activities was going to the flea markets with Mimi and Nana; he got his frugalness from them. Isaac was an old soul. He helped his mom and grandmothers in their flower and vegetable gardens. He planted tulips the last couple of years. Isaac had a special relationship with his uncles. He enjoyed opportunities to talk to his Uncle Larry about computers and other intellectual subjects that they had in common. He enjoyed numerous outdoor activities with his Uncle Jared, fishing and floating on the river, and climbing pine trees in his uncle’s yard. He was a part of the Astronomy Club and took his brothers last month to Eminence to view the eclipse. He loved gaming with his brothers and with people from all around the world. He has friends in many countries and spoke fluent Russian. Isaac wanted to use his talents in engineering and language to help people rebuild Ukraine one day. He had an interest in language and spoke many different languages, enjoyed studying Mandarin, German, Japanese, and others. He was a volunteer of Kindred Spirits Pet Therapy his whole life. Isaac was a loving, thoughtful, giving, protective brother, son, and grandson. Isaac was known to never speak negatively about anyone.
