Isaac J Brock

September 29, 1999 - December 14, 2013

Isaac J. Brock was granted his angel wings on December 14, 2013 at age 14 after a lifelong, courageous battle with cancer. His final days were spent surrounded by his family and friends that Isaac had touched in some small way throughout his short, yet very memorable life. His memory will live on with through others, as he was a tissue donor.

Isaac was born in Bloomington on September 29, 1999 and lived in Brown County for a short while before moving to Indianapolis. He was a sixth grade student at Indianapolis Public School #114. Isaac enjoyed playing the piano and guitar, was known as a Mr. "Fix-It" around the house, and was a fan of the Indianapolis Colts. He loved his cat, Snowball and gold fish, Garfield.

Although Isaac's illness made him appear frail, he possessed strength, perseverance and an ability to overcome incredible odds and physical challenges. With his courage, he led his family and friends to believe that each day is a blessing and an opportunity to create lasting memories.

Isaac leaves behind his loving parents: Ric and Lynda Brock of Indianapolis; paternal grandmother: Vivian Imogene Brock of Pineville, KY; sisters: Britani (Joshua) Condo of Ft. Wayne & Danna Rheinschild of Phelan, CA; brothers: Joshua (Mary Bock) Brock of Indianapolis, Caeleb (Jennifer) Brock of Bradenton, FL and Cameron Wallace of Ft. Wayne.

He was preceded in death by his paternal grandfather: Darwin Brock and a brother: Tavish Wallace.

The Rev. Brian Lane will conduct a funeral service at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday at Meredith – Clark Funeral Home Cremation & Personalization Center, 179 E. Mulberry St. in Morgantown. Friends may call from 4:00 p.m. until service time on Wednesday at the funeral home. On Friday evening, a wake will begin at 4:00 p.m. at the Mill Creek Baptist Church in Stoney Fork, KY. The Rev.

Although I did not know Isaac personally, I want to express my deepest sympathy to your family. Death is always painful but it is especially hard to see someone so young lose their life. In the Bible a very dear friend of Jesus died and the Bible tells us that "Jesus gave way to tears." (John 11:35) This shows that Jesus also experiences the pain that death causes us. But later, Jesus resurrected him. Imagine the joy his family and friends must have felt when they were reunited. That is a future joy that awaits millions of people here on the earth because the Bible promises us at Acts 24:15: "There is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous." I hope this brief message has brought some comfort to you during this difficult time. Please feel free to email me or you may visit our website at www.jw.org which answers many Bible questions regarding death and suffering. My deepest condolences are with your family.
