Robert Bart Isaia, 67, passed away on Saturday, June 8, 2013 after a courageous battle with cancer, with his family by his side.

He was born on March 30, 1946 in Escalon, CA. He retired from Hershey’s after 44 years of employment to do the things he most enjoyed: bicycle riding, kayaking, snorkeling, and riding his Harley.

He cherished his family and friends and his love and kindness touched many lives.

Survivors include his significant other Janie Jones of Oakdale; his son Robert J Isaia and daughter-in-law Jessica Isaia of Escalon; granddaughter Alyssa Isaia of Modesto; his step-grandchildren Cherish Lemos of Maryland, Donald R. Lemos II of Salida; his brother Frank Isaia and sister-in-law Gerdi Isaia of Ripon; along with his niece, nephew and great nephews.

He will be dearly missed.

Funeral arrangements are being made by Deegan Funeral Chapel and will be announced at a later date.
