On May 12th, 1990 Isaac married Joanell Carratt where he joined her in raising 3 step children; Terry, Tim and Tj. Isaac enjoyed life at every moment and hunted to make sure there was always food on the table. Sausage making was a huge treat for us all, he loved making this a family ritual. He spent time fishing for relaxation and enjoyment and made many great memories camping and playing a good round of horseshoes. He enjoyed visiting and storytelling with family and friends. Fixing vehicles is where he got his mechanically inclined mind from. He could fix almost anything. Throughout his time he had given his life to Christ. He made sure to share his love for God and his word as often as he could. Praying for others was a second nature for him. May his love and joy for family and friends carry on to us all as we remember this wonderful man. Graveside Services were held at Brooks Cemetery at 2:00 pm on October 12. Pastor Bill Martin Officiated. For further information, to leave a message of sympathy or to light a candle in memory of Isaac, please visit www.thomsfuneralhome.com or call (403) 501-1010.
