On Thursday, September 26, lives were forever changed for a Southside family.
Their loved one, Isaac James Oldham, 18, lost his life.
Issac, a 2019 graduate of Franklin Central, worked at the Kroger on Southport road in Franklin Township and was riding his motorcycle on his way home when he was hit by a drunk driver at the intersection of Shelbyville and Five Points.
A beautiful memorial has been placed in the grass where he took his last breath.
Isaac’s Mom, Melanie Oldham, is hoping to spread awareness of drinking and driving.
This tragedy has impacted family, friends and the community.
Isaac, born February 2, 2001 to Derrick and Melanie Oldham, was such a special guy, according to so many.
He was an artist and designed the World Cultures Club logo at school, he loved fishing, solving rubiks cubes, playing video games, bowling and listening to music.
He loved spending time with his Mom and siblings Ezra, Isabel and Eva, as well as, his Dad and step-mom, Tracie, and step-siblings, AJ and Kacie Sampson.
Family was important and his dogs, Fred, Amos, Cookie and Tallulah were a huge part too.
He was a hard worker, always helpful, incredibly intelligent and very witty. He was training for management at Kroger.
Isaac, the grandson of Pat Harris and Gary Harris, made the selfless decision to be an organ donor when he received his driver’s license.
A celebration of life took place on Wednesday, October 2.
If you would like to donate in his memory, please send to Biker’s Against Drunk Drivers, 300 S. Pointe Drive, Unit #606, Miami Beach, FL 33139.
