Marshall Leon "Sonny" Isenhour, Sr.,78, of Concord, NC passed away Tuesday, May 9, 2023 at his home surrounded by his loving family.
Sonny was born May 2, 1945 in Stanly County, North Carolina to the late Cleo Leon Isenhour and the late Ethel May Smith-Isenhour-Love. He was also preceded in death by a brother, James Preston Isenhour; a sister, Pearlie McCraven; and grandson, Nathaniel "Nate" Isenhour.

Sonny was a loving, gentle, and humble man that loved God and his family. If his grandsons were on the ball fields, or wrestling mat, that's where you would find him. Sonny loved being outdoors, fishing, the beach, and spending time with his wife, children, and grand children. Sonny retired from Terminal Trucking, Kannapolis City Schools, and worked for Easter Seals. He never met a stranger and loved joking around with whoever was around. If you ever had the opportunity to be around him, then you have an everlasting memory of the impact he had in your life.
