    Ronald “Ronnie” Isenberg, (1933-2017), passed away at age 84 from a 17 year struggle with Alzheimer’s. A lawyer, mentor, community leader, friend, brother, loving and beloved husband, father, grandfather and family man. Ronnie was born in Philipsburg, Pennsylvania and attended Altoona High School where he first started dating his wife of 63 years, Rosamond. He went on to Penn State University and then moved to Philadelphia to attend the University of Pennsylvania Law School. Ronnie shared his life with his wife, Rosamond and their children, Debbie and Steven Kass, Steven and Lisa Isenberg and Jodi Isenberg. Ronnie was the delighted and proud Grampy of Joshua, Alexis and Samantha Isenberg and Jared and Lindsay Kass. An avid golfer and traveler, he loved boating, the Philadelphia Eagles, music, the boardwalk, bagels, lox and cream cheese and his family. He was lovingly known to his family as “Rocket” and was the family’s impetus for establishing the Rocket Education Community Center for Life Long Learning (REC), a facility for people with early stage dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Ronnie was a long-time member and supporter of B’Nai B’rith, Temple Sinai, Boy Scouts of America, Big Brother and Big Sisters Club, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and American Bar Associations, and served on numerous community and local, boards, associations and groups including Masons, Shriners, Justice Lodge and the Upper Dublin Municipal Authority. Ronnie’s doors and heart were always open to young lawyers for guidance, friends and of course family. There was a service honoring Ronnie Tuesday, November 14, 12:00 p.m. at Beth Israel Northfield, 2501 Shore Road, Northfield, N.J. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested donations to the REC Center that can be made at www.act.alz.org/honoringronisenberg.
