It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Isaac Stahl (Ike), aged 71 years, of Linden, Manitoba. He was surrounded by his loving family as he passed peacefully into the arms of Jesus.

He will also be lovingly remembered by his brother-in-law Levi Wollman.
He was predeceased by his father Joseph, mother Rachel, oldest brother Joseph, and youngest sister Matilda.
He was born on June 5, 1950, in Elie, Manitoba. Isaac met his wife of 44 years, Lena at Suncrest Colony and they were married on July 3rd, 1977. They left their Hutterite community near Virden Manitoba, on June 10th, 1985 and settled in the community of Landmark, Manitoba along with his brother David and family.
Isaac was employed in construction, as an illuminated sign technician and as a long distance trucker, spending 20 years touring and sightseeing North America with his wife.
Isaac was a loving family man at heart, who cherished his wife, children, and grandchildren unconditionally. He joyfully shared his life story and faith in Jesus Christ with everyone he met. He was continually positive, always selfless, loved life and community; he showed genuine interest in getting to know everyone he met, and left a lasting impression and legacy. He loved, lived, laughed and believed without reservation.
