Isaac’s family immigrated to Canada in 1929, settling in Arnaud, Man., where Isaac farmed with his father. In 1942, he accepted Jesus as Saviour in an evangelistic meeting. Isaac and Frieda spent the first 3 years of their married life on the farm and moved to Kitchener, Ont., in 1955. Isaac began working at JM Schneiders in 1962, retiring in 1986. He loved God, and church was important to him. At Kitchener MB Church, he served as deacon, usher and driver. He loved singing in the Jubilation Male Chorus. In 2015, to be close to their children, Isaac and Frieda moved to Winnipeg, where Isaac was happy to live his last days.
