Obituary for Kenneth James Isaacs

Kenneth James Isaacs, age 69 of McKee, was born July 9, 1949 and departed this life October 26, 2018 at the Hospice Compassionate Care Center in Richmond, Ky. He was the son of the late James and Della “Dimp” Gabbard Isaacs. He is survived by his wife of 45 years, Susan Adams Isaacs, and by one daughter, Mary Ruth Isaacs of McKee. He is also survived by two brothers, Larry (Darlene) Isaacs and Bobby Isaacs all of McKee.
Kenny graduated from McKee High School in 1966 when he was 16 years old. He served in the United States Air Force.
He was ordained a Baptist preacher in 1977 and served as pastor at churches in Jackson and surrounding counties. Kenny was the first chaplain of the Jackson County Chapter of the DAV.
In 1993, Kenny and Sue began working at the McKee Manor Apartments and this became their mission in life and ministry for the next 35 years. Kenny also served as a member of the McKee City Council for 18 years and as Mayor of the City of McKee for 3 years. He was a servant of the people and believed in helping others whenever he could. He also retired from the Kentucky State Police as a drivers license examiner. He was a honest, respected member of our community and his influence will live on in the hearts and minds of those who knew him.
The love of his life was his wife, Sue. They were married on January 5, 1973 at Birch Lick Baptist Church. Their daughter, Mary Ruth, is a reflection of his looks and personality. Kenny loved God, his family, his friends and his country. He was proud to be a member of the Birch Lick Baptist Church and we feel our loss is Heaven’s gain.
