Isaac James Croyle

Feb. 2004 ~ July 2019

Isaac passed away peacefully in his sleep on Sunday, July 21, 2019.  He will be dearly missed by all who know him, are touched by his loving and joyous spirit, and inspired by his infectious lust for life.

Isaac lived a big life and loved traveling anywhere in the car. He was passionate about music, singing his favorite songs, Day-O and I’ll Be On My Way, and playing drums.  He enjoyed participating in sports and activities through Society for disAbilities and at Beyer High School in the Challenge Athletics program.  Isaac could dribble a basketball for hours. He loved Disneyland, dogs and anything with water. Isaac delighted in celebrating all of the people in his life and was always the first to begin singing Happy Birthday (for any occasion).

Isaac’s magnetic personality was irresistible and he had an impact on everyone who knows him.  He always loved laughing and making others laugh.  Isaac was tenacious and independent.  Isaac has a way of helping people realize that we all are more alike than different. His relationships with others created a larger family for him and his mom.

Isaac is survived by his mom, Alana Croyle; grandparents, Billie and Gordon Switzer, Cherry and Glen Lyon, and Fred Croyle II; aunts and uncles, Renee Switzer, Sandra Croyle, Peter (Jennifer) Croyle and Michael Croyle. He was preceded in death by his father, Fred Croyle III.

A celebration of Isaac’s life will be at the Modesto Church of the Brethren at 2301 Woodland Avenue on August 17th at 3:00 pm.  Isaac loved wearing tie-dye and you are invited to wear tie-dye in celebration of his life.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to The Society for disAbilities or Camp Peaceful Pines in Isaac’s name.

    Alana, Renee, Billie and Gordon – I am so very sorry about Isaac. While I wasn’t lucky enough to meet him, I felt like I had met him through the stories my mom would tell. Every story was a reflection of the tremendous love and kindness that was his life. We have known you all forever – in many different capacities and the mention of any of your names brings a huge smile to our faces. You have always been the kindest friends and companions.
    Sending you all love and hope for strength. I am thinking of you.

    God gave you Issac as a treasure to love and care for, and he knew that YOU had the biggest HEART and strongest SPIRIT for the job of being Isaac’s wonderful mother!

    He was a GIFT from above!

    I remember bringing Jayden to your house and how special it was for the two of them to play together.

    Please know my heart and condolences are with you and your parents during this challenging time.

    With all my LOVE,
