He is remembered as a man with a myriad of interests who possessed the passion and drive to master them all: physician, entrepreneur, violinist, historian, patriot, woodworker, fisherman, professor, friend, brother, and father.

He was born the oldest son of Khoshaba Joseph and Rachel Jane Isaac in Flint, Michigan on July 9, 1942. He was commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant in the United States Air Force, achieved the rank of Major, and was Honorably Discharged in 1966.

A resident of Beaumont, Texas since 1975, he was the founder, owner, and director of East Texas Pathology in Beaumont.  He became a Commissioned Officer in the Army Reserve serving as the Chief of Laboratory Services in the 4005th U.S. Army Reserve Hospital in Houston, Texas.  He was promoted to the rank of Colonel, served as Commander of the 4005th U.S. Army Hospital from 1991 to 1994, and was Honorably Discharged in 1994.  He obtained a Masters in Business Administration from Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas in 1999 and was a member of Beta Gamma Sigma Honor Society for Collegiate Schools of Business Lamar Chapter.

Dr. Isaac is survived by his daughter, Meredith Isaac Wells, of Falls Church, Virginia and his brother, John Saul Isaac, of Burton, Michigan.

At Peter’s request, there will be no funeral or memorial service. Instead, he asked that friends and loved ones pursue their interests with passion.

    Dr. Pete,
    Thank you for opening my world to the uniqueness of natural yogurt, to the beauty of evocative music from the Baroque to the Oud, and finally, but most importantly, to the need for compassionate health care.
    Rest in eternal peace, Peter.

    Peter was such a wonderful person. He was my friend and mentor. I will always be grateful to him for his support when I was in nursing school. He gave me my graduation party in 2007 and it was an amazing day. I loved being able to just drop by and chat with him and Wanda. He always had a great attitude about life. He was kind and generous and did everything with a lot of passion. He loved cooking too. He loved to teaching as well. He would play chess with my youngest daughter, Rachel. He had a life well lived. RIP my friend.

    Peter was a great man and a good friend to all. He had many interests and talents. Peter enjoyed entertaining and welcomed everyone into his home. Peter loved the holidays and treated all of his guests like “family”. He had a quirky, dry sense of humor and was fascinating, kind, well traveled and intelligent. Peter was an old fashioned gentlemen with an abundance of knowledge that he enjoyed sharing, Often times with a wink and a quick smile.. He was generous, spoke many different languages and loved good food, good wine and good company. Rest In Peace, Peter. You will be missed.

    Love, “Little Steph”

    I worked for PCI at the lab for almost 10 years. He was an incredible human. He taught me so much…every time with patience and catering to how I learned. That’s just who he was. He loved October and Halloween. I will dearly miss his kindness, sometimes dark humor, and giving him a hard time about how high he wore his pants. Deepest condolences to daughter Meredith and Pam Meador.

    Lee & Gina Acevedo Jr. says:

    I (we) have known Pete for 40 plus years . This gentleman was a true friend. he never approached you without a smile on his face. Pete was a man who always offered to help without being asked and never expected anything in return. Last time I spoke with him , he was in the hospital. He said ” Don’t worry about me Buddy. This is just something that has to be done. I kicked it’s Butt before, I will kick it’s Butt again”. I told him we loved him and he said I Love You back to me. Our Lord had a bigger plan for Pete. He is home now and I hope he saves me a seat so we can catch up when I get there. God bless you my friend . You did a great job while on this Earth .
    Welcome Home.

    He was the sweetest man. We used to run into him at the gym and have brief visits with him. This man sure loved his mother. He would tell us about him and his mom drinking wine and enjoying each others company. He will be missed.

    Dennis Meador says:

    We have known Peter for some 40 years. Always enjoyed our conversations over the phone and in person, both academically and personally thru the years. He was always instant in his concern and help when anyone needed it. So many owe him so much. He was a scholar and a gentleman of the first class. We have lost, for a short time, a beloved member of our family. Our thoughts and prayers are sent to all.
