Isaiah loved growing up on the ranch on Lower Sweet Grass Creek, which will also be his final resting place. Playing with his cousins Nicole, Brycen, Carrie, Brooklyn, Rachel and Brodee, who was also his very best buddy. When the two boys were younger they made a plan to move to Las Vegas when they grew up after hearing it was “the city that never sleeps”.
Isaiah was a fun, loving young man with a terrific sense of humor. He liked making people laugh and was darn good at! His magnetic personality and dynamic charm earned him many friends through the years, a lot of them girls, all over the state of Montana. He was so proud of his 1977 Ford truck, always dreaming of ways that he and his brother, Josh, could fix it up
He enjoyed riding horses with his friends and camping down by the creek and taking the horses on pack trips with Cody, Kevin, Garrett and others. Caring for the horses was of great importance to him and he enjoyed it. He loved hunting, fishing and trapping with his dad, hanging out with his mom and his buddies. He always had a new story to tell of the adventures he had been on.
Isaiah is going to be missed more than he could ever imagine for as easy as it was for others to love this young man, he was so humble that it didn’t occur to him just how much he was loved by all who met him.
You will always be loved and never, ever forgotten, Isaiah. Shine bright Cowboy.
