Curious and creative, compassionate and strong-willed, generous and funny, Isaac Benjamin Currey-Voiles lived a life rich in love and service. With a quick wit and a gentle heart, he loved to make people laugh, especially those who were hurting, and he never hesitated to put others first. Once he set his mind on something, Isaac unfalteringly gave all of himself, striving for his very best. Always heart-centered, Isaac felt deeply; and in so many ways, his spirit was larger than life. Cherished son, brother, spouse, and friend, Isaac's bright light will continue to shine in the hearts of those who were blessed to know him.

America, at large, was prospering in the '90s. During this final decade of the 20th Century, the United States economy grew by an average of 4 percent per year between 1992 and 1999. An average of 1.7 million jobs a year was added to the American workforce. The unemployment rate dropped to 4 percent. The median American household income grew by 10 percent. It was a decade of much good news and astounding new achievement, including the collapse of the Soviet Empire, the dismantling of the apartheid in South Africa, the civil wars in the ending of the former Yugoslavia. Also, China reformed its economy, tripling its gross domestic product and easing its way into the world order. The quality of entertainment dramatically improved, and creative brilliance shined in our homes in the likes of Harry Potter, Seinfeld, The Simpsons, Friends, and NYPD Blue. Pixar resurrected animation with Toy Story while the digital age boomed with the mainstreaming of the Internet, digital phones, 3-D games, and affordable laptops. Peace and Prosperity were the order of the day, and American culture was vibrant and healthy as well. Locally, in Kenosha, Wisconsin, life's good fortunes shined especially brightly for Joseph and Deevon "Dee" (nee Schlosser) Currey who welcomed their son, Isaac, into their family on September 18, 1993.

The second oldest of the four Currey children, Isaac grew up in the good companionship of his older brother Adam and younger sister Johanna "Jo-Jo." Sadly, his younger brother, Noah, passed away at the age of 16 months, on June 6, 2002. Even though he was the best baby, Isaac proved to be a horrible toddler. His strong-will and inquisitive mind kept him on the go and constantly investigating things, to include what was in the refrigerator. If the home was quiet, checking-up on Isaac was required as his parents knew he was getting into trouble. At toddler age, Isaac was able to run all the electronics which helped when Grandma or babysitters came to watch him. He played the Lion King movie so much that he wore the VHS tape out, and his parents had to buy a new one. He had a wonderful sense of humor and used his imagination for play, creativity, and entertaining himself. He was a very sharp dresser. Even as a toddler, he insisted on picking his own clothes out which actually matched and looked terrific. A remembered, surprising phrase, used correctly, that dropped the jaws of Grandma Janise Israel and his mom was when he came home from Early Childhood Program as an example peer, was “Well, actually!” As a child, he loved animals and some of his favorite toys were dinosaurs, Lincoln logs, and action figures, especially his army men.

Isaac's family moved to Racine, Wisconsin, in May of 2003, and his interests grew to include music, singing, soccer, football games, and dolphins. As a teen, his love for music continued, as did his interests in poetry, art, and drama. Recognizing his natural talents, his parents encouraged him to get involved in drama at school, but Isaac showed reluctance. Imagine their surprise when Isaac asked them to come to see him in the school performance of Oklahoma. The first time Phantom of the Opera was released to high schools to perform, Isaac played the role of the conductor. He exuded pure enjoyment on the stage even though his only line was clearing his throat. While he loved to sing at the top of his lungs, he realized he sounded like a sick animal. Not stopping his singing, he turned to playing the piano and writing songs and sending them to friends and family.

Isaac enlisted in the U.S. Army.in the fall of 2011 of his senior year. After graduating from Case High School in Racine, Wisconsin, in June of 2012, he left for basic training in July. He successfully graduated from Infantry basic training in September of 2012 in Fort Benning, Georgia, and began his official service in Hawaii. During his years of service, he served in Ordinances, a bullet bean counter; he was the guy who issued soldiers their weapons/bullets. He was deployed to Afghanistan and returned to Hawaii before going to Korea. Earning his rank as Sergeant, he completed his service at Fort Benning, Georgia. It was during his service in the Army that Isaac met Dustin Voiles on January 7, 2017 and they married on October 23, 2017.

Two Latin phrases, "Memento Mori" (remember you must die) and "Memento Vivere" (Remember you have to live), inspired Isaac to embrace each precious moment of his life. Striving to live wholeheartedly and fully in the moment, Isaac found joy in teaching children soccer, playing Pokémon GO, watching anything on Cartoon Network, running marathons, and writing poetry, songs, and a book.

Though our days with him were far too few, Isaac leaves behind a priceless collection of memories that we will forever hold dear to our hearts. As we begin to wrestle with our loss, it is Isaac's kind heart, insatiable curiosity, artist's soul, quick wit, and unflinching support of others that will long inspire us to share his memory and carry his legacy forward.

Isaac Benjamin Currey-Voiles, of Racine, Wisconsin, passed away unexpectedly on January 6, 2021, age of 27. He is the beloved son of Joseph and Dee Currey (nee Deevon Schlosser). He is the loving brother of Adam Currey, Johanna "Jo-Jo" Currey, the late Noah Currey, and his “adopted sister” Megan Phillips. He is further survived by his spouse Dustin Voiles, other relatives, and friends.

Family and friends will gather Thursday, January 14, 2021, at Parkway Apostolic Church, 10940 S. Nicholson Road, Oak Creek, WI 53154 from 5:30 PM until time of the Memorial Service at 7:00 PM.

Inurnment is at Sunset Ridge Memorial Park, 4300 Green Bay Road, Kenosha, WI 53144, on Friday, January 15, 2021 at 11 AM. Please meet at the main building.
