Robert G. "Bob" Isaacs, 82, passed away unexpectedly Friday, February 15, 2019 at Mercy South Hospital in St. Louis, MO.
Bob was born August 21, 1936 to John and Willie Maude Isaacs in West Frankfort, Illinois. He was twelfth of thirteen siblings and the only member of his family to graduate from college (McKendree College). He dedicated his life to public education and the betterment of all students. A lifelong educator, Mr. Isaacs was a retired superintendent of Waterloo Schools, but began his career as a teacher, guidance counselor and coach. He obtained his doctorate from Southern Illinois University in Carbondale.
He had a deep love and dedication to his family as well, including a wife of 56 years, Margaret (Dorris) Isaacs, two children, Debbie (Steve) Conrod and Doug Isaacs. He had five grandchildren, Kyle (Beth) Conrod, Laura Conrod, Whitney (Lee) Jones, Taylor (Brad) Echele and Mariah Isaacs. He was also a great-grandfather to six: Trey and Graham Conrod, Lyla Conrod, Boston and Everlee Jones, and Declan Echele.
