Leo Thomas McIsaac

September 1, 1948 - February 12, 2018

Our loving father, brother and friend, Leo Thomas McIsaac, 69, died after his courageous battle with brain cancer on February 12, 2018.

Leo was born on September 1, 1948 in Wakefield, Massachusetts, to parents John and Mildred McIsaac. He grew up in Wakefield, and also lived in Rowley, North Reading and Salt Lake City.

Leo proudly served in the Army National Guard of Massachusetts. He received an honorary discharge as Sergeant in 1974. He graduated from the University of Massachusetts and Boston College.

Leo worked in human resources, retiring from the US Post Office as director and PRMI as vice-president. Throughout his career, he received many awards, and achieved recognition from professional organizations.

He is preceded in death by his parents, John and Mildred McIsaac and his sister Teresa.

Dad always put family first. We children, Jason, Stacie and Alexandra were the most important part of his life. Dad also loved his son-in-law, Jason's husband, Jeremy McCulley as one of his own children.

Dad was an avid fan of Boston College athletics. He could have taught Doug Flutie a thing or two.

He was always prepared to fill in for Tom Brady of the Patriots.

Furthermore, if the Red Sox signed dad to replace David Ortiz they would have won the World Series.


Leo is survived by his children; his best friend since grade school, Carl P. White; his grandson Colt; his brothers Ken and Jack and their families; son-in-law Jordan; many nieces and nephews; and Bella his loving dog.
