Reece R. Isenhart


Reece Ryan Isenhart, 26, of Elk Rapids entered into his heavenly home on July 7, 2019. Reece was born in Grand Rapids on Dec. 15, 1992. He moved with his family to Elk Rapids in 2004.
Reece loved life in Northern Michigan and enjoyed hiking, skiing, boating, swimming and taking in the amazing sunsets near his family home on East Bay.
To know Reece was to love him. He had an infectious smile, a goofy disposition and a big heart for people.
Reece loved to golf, hunt, run and be active in any way he could - including sports. He played baseball, basketball and football for Elk Rapids High School from 2007 to 2011 before going on to play college football at Northwood University from 2011 to 2015.
Reece loved God with all of his heart and felt the love and presence of his Savior most when he was spending time in his beautiful creation. Reece clung to God and his promises as he bravely walked through a battle with cancer in 2017. His bible was never far from his side, and he tried to spend each evening reading through God's word.
Reece touched countless lives in his time here on earth. He is survived by his parents, Jim and Reneé Isenhart; siblings, Danielle (Wesley) Jarmusch, Jared Isenhart and Darica (Major) Bevis; nephews and niece, Caleb, Gabrielle, Benjamin and Calvin; grandparents, Jim and Karen Isenhart, Carol (Luc Serriere) Wylie, Ed Elkins and James Campbell; aunts, uncles and cousins; and countless friends.
There will be a service to honor his life on Friday, July 12, 2019 at 11 a.m. at New Hope Community Church, 5100 Bethesda Ct., Williamsburg, MI 49690. Visitation will be held from 4 to 8 p.m. at New Hope on Thursday, July 11, 2019 and one hour prior to the service on Friday.
Memorial contributions in Reece's name may be made to New Hope Community Church.
Reece and his family are being cared for by Reynolds-Jonkhoff Funeral Home and Cremation Services;
"Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it." - 1 Corinthians 9:24

Oh what it must be like to see Jesus face to face. Thank you for the encouraging words that you always uttered even when you were in deep pain yourself. We love you brother and can’t wait to see that smiling face again. Praying for your family and that Gods perfect peace and love will wash over them in waves. See you soon, Reece. ❤️
