Isaac Abraham Gathings, age 69, of Denver Colorado, transitioned late Tuesday night, June 20, 2017, at his home. Born April 5, 1948, in Mellwood, Arkansas, Isaac was the son of the late Douglas Gathings and Mary Jane (Gray) Gathings.

In 1972, his final year, Isaac was named Who's Who UAPB. After graduation, Southern Methodist University ("SMU") recruited Isaac, and he obtained his Master's in Business Administration in August 1974. Isaac moved to Denver to join Martin Marietta (now Lockheed Martin) in September of 1974 as a Cost Accountant, and later, as Manager of Vendor Audits. While in Denver, Isaac met Joyce Bachman, and they married in December of 1976. In 1998, Isaac was hired as a Manager of Facilities at Logix Communications in Oklahoma City.

He sang in the men's chorus at King Baptist Church; was active in the Boy Scouts, Optimist Club, and Toast Masters; and was an early supporter of (then) Sen.
