Obituary: Tony Isi

1933 ~ 2004

Our loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, brother and friend, Tony Isi, passed away October 1, 2004 in West Valley City, Utah.

Born November 15, 1933 in Ophir, Utah, son of Antonio Isi and Inez Phillipi. Tony was very proud of the fact that he had made it to his 70th birthday, a feat that many of his family members were not able to accomplish.

Tony married Joan Rydalch July 9, 1954, and together they had eight children. They later divorced and he then married Marion Casper in Elko, Nevada in October of 1975. He worked as a miner for Kennecott Copper Corporation where he retired. Tony had a passion for trains and loved his gambling trips to Wendover. He was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and a dedicated husband and father. He loved watching Gene Autry and John Wayne movies and was a Utah Jazz fan. He will be missed by all who knew him.

Tony is survived by his wife, Marion; his children: Jane (Chalo) Martinez, Kenneth Isi, Debbie (John) Hammer, Joni (Ron) Summers, David (Kim) Isi, Michael Isi, Bruce Isi and Mary (Rick) Padilla; Shauna (James) Baird; step-children: Melaney Jacobsen, Kim Horrocks and Debra Horrocks; 23 grandchildren; seven great-grand-children; brothers, Alfonzo (Lalla) Isi, George Ala, Lawrence (Edna) Ala and Johnny Ala; and sister, Emma Serassio, and "Missy," his beloved dog. He was preceded in death by his parents; two grandsons; two brothers and two sisters.
