On June 21, 2015, our loving and devoted husband, father and grandfather slipped away from our arms to meet his final resting place and to have ever-lasting peace. Left to miss Ike is his wife, Germaine; his children, Lisa (Joshua) and Christopher; his grandchildren, Angel, Isaac and Joshua. He is survived by his mother, Edith; sister, Rita; and brothers, Bill and Carter. He was predeceased by his father, Isaac Sr. and sister, Shirley.
His passion was his 35 years spent in the Canadian Armed Forces where he retired proudly and successfully in the rank of Master Warrant Officer. A distinguished and dignified man, Ike received many medals during his service. Despite being retired, Ike voluntarily went to Afghanistan for two tours. For the past 11 years Ike developed a green thumb and his new passion became nature and working on his land where he loved to plant from seed and watch things grow and blossom. If something had the least bit of a sprout on it, he saw it and saw life. But Ike’s first and longest passion was the love, devotedness and commitment he gave his wife, Germaine, his children, Chris and Lisa, and later in life, his grandchildren, Angel, Isaac and Joshua.
A memorial service will be held on Thursday, June 25 at 2 p.m. in Saint Marguerite Bourgeoys Parish, “St. James location”, 1274 Hammonds Plains Rd. Officiating at the service will be Father Joe MacKinnon.
Thirty five years of military service and two tours in Afghanistan could NOT prepare Ike for the battle of cancer which raged throughout him in the end. May he lovingly and sincerely rest in peace. Online condolences can be made at: www.rawalker.ca
