Isaiah James Thomas Ackerman was born on September 4th, 2010 in Coeur d'Alene, ID. In his 8 years of living on this earth, Isaiah battled a genetic neurological disease known as GM1 Gangliosidosis Type 2. Isaiah loved Bruce Springsteen, Spider-man, Curious George, and being curious. With an adventurous spirit, nothing and nowhere was off limits to him. He attended North Star Development Center since the age of four and had just stopped going months ago due to his decline in health. Isaiah's warmth and loving presence had a way of bringing all of your broken pieces back together again. His blond curly hair and blue eyes made it easy for him to get away with just about anything. He is now running free with his brother and free from pain.
Isaiah will be joining his big brother: Luke Michael Ackerman, his grandparents: Thomas Byron and Susan Marie Cox, Aunt: Cheryl Denise Sembach, Great Grandfather: James Maurice Cox, and Great Grandmother: Mary Ann Decker in heaven.
He is survived by his parents Casey Cosmo Ackerman and Deborah Lynn Cox Age: 37 and 30, sister Montana Lynn Ackerman Age: 10, and his grandparents James Lewis Carr and Robyn Amy Carr Age: 73 and 63.
Please send any donations to the CureGM1 Foundation in memory of Isaiah.
