a short illness.
After his father's accidental death during the depression, he struggled for
many years to keep the family farm. Even though he was retired, he spent

was well known in the registered Shorthorn cattle breed. He served on the
Marion County Farm Bureau board of directors and with the Marion County
Soil. and Water Conservation District. He was a member of the Prospect
United Methodist Church and the Ohio cattleman's Association. His family
loved his light-hearted anecdotes of life and farming.

Hecker Isler and was predeceased by two brothers, John Jacob Isler and
Rudolph Isler and a sister, Ivadelle'Oswald.
He is survived by his wife, Marjorie; a son, Joe (Connie) Isler Jr. of
Prospect; a daughter, Kathleen (Gary) Lama of Prospect; two granddaughters,
Abigail (Dan) Gafrney and Laura (Robert) Goodman of Marion; and
two step-grandsons, Jason Swartz and Nathan (Teresa) Swartz of Richwood.
The Rev. David L. Hoffman will officiate at private family graveside services
at the Prospect Cemetery.
