Donald M. MacIsaac, 90, passed away peacefully on July 11, 2019. 

Don was born on September 15, 1928 to Archibald and Lydia McIsaac in Princeton, NJ.  He attended Princeton University and graduated from Syracuse University.

He was preceeded in death by his parents, his brother Robert, his daughter Jennifer, his son Bruce and his stepsons Jeffery and Tim King.

Don is survived by his wife Joyce, grandson Justin Wilkinson (Wendy), granddaughter Olivia MacIsaac and great granddaughter Hannah Wilkinson.

He is also survived by stepdaughter Sue Neufeld, stepson Todd Neufeld, brother Malcolm McIsaac and nephew Robert McIsaac.

He was a retired Professor Emeritus from IUP and an accomplished musician, writer, and a professional independent filmmaker.

He loved his family farm and homestead and its rich history that dates back to the 1840’s. Most of all, he loved his family, his devoted wife and partner Joyce and especially the newest addition, his precious great granddaughter Hannah.  He suffered greatly the deaths of his children.

He was a good and kind man, a compassionate man, a brave man, and a compassionate and wise friend.

Don’s wife Joyce wishes to express her profound gratitude to VNA/Family Hospice of Indiana Co. and, if you choose, please make memorial contributions to them.
