Text size

Thomas L. Isenberg, 74, of Dillsburg, passed away at the VA Medical Center in Lebanon on Dec. 22, 2017.

He was born May 20, 1943, in Reading, the sixth of seven children born to the late Harry M. Isenberg and Frances E. (Malone) Isenberg.
Tom was proud to have been raised, lived, and later raise his own family in the Third Ward of Sunbury. He later retired to Little River, S.C. where he spent his time golfing and visiting with friends.

Tom graduated from Sunbury High School in 1962 and joined the Marine Corps serving domestically and overseas in Vietnam.
On Nov. 5, 1966, he was made an honest man when he married Ann M. Moyer, also of Sunbury. Together they raised two children and remained married for more than 51 years until his passing.
Not quite suited for a desk job, Tom proudly served as a Pennsylvania State Trooper for 21 years, retiring in 1992.
Tom was a life member of the Americus Hose Co., the Sunbury Social Club, the Retired State Troopers Association, the Little River, S.C. Elks, the Myrtle Beach, S.C. VFW, and the Little River, S.C. American Legion Post 186.
Tom was an avid golfer, Penn State football fan, and loved to spend time boating and fishing on the Susquehanna River.

In addition to his loving wife, Tom is survived by his son and daughter-in-law, Thomas Jr. and Kelly Isenberg, daughter, Alexis Isenberg, and three grandchildren, Grace Isenberg, Thomas Isenberg III, and Brynn Hilbish, all of Dillsburg; four siblings, Anne Doebler, of Lewisburg, Richard Isenberg, of Milton, Harriet Hoover, of El Paso, Texas, and James Isenberg, of Northumberland; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Tom was preceded in death by one brother, Harry Isenberg, and one sister, Helen Kramer.

Friends and family may visit from 1 to 2 p.m. Saturday at the David T. Zweier Funeral Home, 157 Chestnut St., Sunbury, followed by a memorial service at 2.
Interment will be in Indiantown Gap National Cemetery at the convenience of the family.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests any donations in Tom's memory be made to the Hospice Wing of the VA Medical Center, Lebanon, PA.
