Wayne Isaacson Obituary

Calumet- Wayne Arthur Isaacson, age 71, passed away at his home in Calumet, Michigan after a lengthy illness.  He was born in Calumet, Michigan on September 23, 1951 to Arthur W. Isaacson and Faith (Nordstrom) Isaacson.  He was preceded in death by his parents, his brothers-in-law John W. Aho, and his dog Scruffie.  After his graduation from Calumet High School in 1969 he voluntarily enlisted in the U.S. Army and completed two tours of duty in Vietnam.  He then worked for Kohler Corporation in Sheboygan, Wisconsin for forty years.  Upon retiring he returned to his hometown and enjoyed doing projects on the family home.  In his youth he embraced the great outdoors.  He would hunt, fish and trap.  He loved riding his Harley Davidson motorcycle, he always said he doesn’t have a care in the world when he was riding his Harley.  Often he would give his sister, Connie a treat and take her touring with him.  At that time their favorite son was Bob Seger’s Fire Lake.  Sister Tonia’s fondest memory is going out to the Cliffs, camping with him and exploring the cliffs in Keweenaw County.  Sister Donna recalls him pulling up at our grandmother’s house with his spanking new yellow Pontiac LeMans that he bought when he got out of the service to show it off.  Listening to 1970 era music was a favorite pastime of his.  His favorite artists were Led Zeppelin, Bob Seger and Johnny Cash.  He was an excellent conversationalist and enjoyed talking to friends.  He got to visit with his good friend Mark the week before he died, as he worked with Mark at Kohler for many years and Mark made many visits here to see him.  He is survived by three sisters, Donna Aho, Tonia (John) Larson and Connie Isaacson, and his caregiver Rose Nagy, several nieces, nephews and cousins.  Monetary donations can be sent to the Copper Country Humane Society.  He remains in our hearts always.  Holy Bible 1 Corinthians 15:26…. “The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death”.
