Ralph J. Eiseman passed away on August 14, 2017, at the age of 77, at his home, peacefully and quietly in his favorite spot overlooking the Ottawa River, with his loving wife of 55 years, Shirley, by his side. He had fond memories of his early years growing up across from old Firehouse #19 on Stickney Avenue. Being able to spend time with his father, a fireman, washing fire trucks, tending to hoses, and getting to go on fire runs sitting next to his dad, Fireman Bob, or riding the back of the fire engines when he was older and able to hang on tight to the hand rail. He had great memories of the time spent with his sister and family at Sand Lake. Racing his sister Carolyn, cousins, and other friends and family around in the boat, once getting a ticket from the local sheriff for having too much fun on the water. He met his wife, his million dollar baby, at the five and dime during his Air Force duties near Marquette Michigan, and became a devoted husband and provider for their children, Jon, his little princess Jodi, and Jeff (Lisa). Ralph enjoyed being with his grandchildren, Thomas, James, Willow and Ivy. He was preceded in death by an infant son, Joseph, and his parents, Robert and Mildred Eiseman. He will miss his best friend Jim, his special cousin Doris, his friend Don, and other family members as well, to include numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. Ralph was a proud veteran, and enjoyed the many years he served as a postman in Point Place and being able to joke around with his fellow postal employees. He was a member of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church and a Master Mason of Damascus Collingwood Lodge # 643. Ralph unselfishly donated his body to medical research.
