He had a good heart for our men by encouraging them to get an education, always do good, get a good job, stay out of the streets, away from drugs, and always take care of their mothers. And the best thing of all, he didn’t just speak these words, he lived by them. He was truly a giver- no matter if you needed his last dime, it was yours, and more importantly, he gave unselfishly. Even while he was undergoing treatment, under duress, and experiencing indescribable pain, he expressed a genuine concern for the welfare of others. Although Zeke had an easygoing personality and could make you laugh uncontrollably, he also has a serious side. He had strong life ethics and morals. He was very inspirational and passionate about his relationship with the “Good Lord’, and expressed it frequently. words spoken by a true soldier, “I may have MS, but MS don’t have me.” A man of compassion, consideration, charisma, Isaiah was a beloved son, father, grandfather, stepfather, God-Father, brother, uncle and friend.
