Ray Eugene Eisaman Obituary
Ray Eugene Eisaman

MANSFIELD: Ray Eisaman was blessed with the gift of gab. He never met a stranger and always had a story to tell. More than talkative, Ray understood that conversations where give and take, and knew how to make others feel comfortable in his presence with a simple joke. Ray Eisaman, never one to take things to seriously, enjoyed the lighter side of life.

Ray Eugene Eisaman, age 86, of Mansfield passed away Wednesday, March 19, 2014 in his home surrounded by his loving family.

He was born January 20, 1928 in Mansfield, the son of John H. and Ruth M. (Heasley) Eisaman and was graduated from Mansfield Senior High School in 1946.

A Korean War Veteran he served in the U.S. Army for two years active duty. Patriotic, he remained active with the Korean War Veterans Association Chapter#51 and the AmVets Post #26.

Ray worked for 25 years at the Tappan Company retiring in 1991. He was a member of the Tappan Quarter Century Club.

A lifelong area resident, Ray was a member of the Leiderkranz and enjoyed auto racing. More than anything, Ray cherished his family and friends.

He is survived by his loving wife of 57 years Marylu (Watson) Eisaman; two sons Jeffrey S. Eisaman of St. Louis, Missouri and Timothy A. Eisaman of Mansfield, nieces and nephews and extended family.

He was preceded in death by a brother John H. Eisaman, Jr.
