Born on Dec. 12, 1953, in Urmia, Iran, Sargon Isaac was the first born to Isaac and Almas Isaac. He grew up in Iran. After finishing high school, he joined the Iranian military. In the military, he excelled in the electronics field and, as a result, the military sent him to England to further his technical knowledge and skills. Once the Iranian revolution began, Sargon was forced to leave England and move to the United States with his father. Later his mother, Almas, and his brother, Cyrus, joined him and they all resided in Redwood City, Calif. Sargon worked in electronic companies for many years and continued his education in this field.
In 1985, he married Ms. Marlo Isaac. The fruit of this marriage were his daughter, Sophia, and his son, Hormuz.
Sargon was a very ambitious and self-made man. He was able to invest in real estate and the stock market. Sargon lived in Redwood City and worked for Intel as an electronic tech from 1993 through 2002. Due to health reasons, he was forced to take an early retirement.
Sargon was a family man and a good provider for his family. He loved family gatherings where he would sit and tell funny jokes, discuss and debate politics and best of all, talk about past memories of our homeland.
Sargon had a love for nature and the great outdoors. He loved hiking, camping at Yosemite and exploring the wildlife. Although many may think that he loved to shop, especially at Costco, he was a well-read man. He collected a library of books as a youngster; most of these books pertained to homeland politics. As a result, he enjoyed discussing politics and held good debates with those who came his way.
Sargon, in his own way, cherished the true sense of integrity. He practiced and lived by “honesty is the best policy.”
