He was predeceased by his beloved wife of fifty-seven years, Emily Eisenhaure. He was the son of late Reuben and Vivian (Robinson) Eisenhaure, predeceased by his brother, James and survived by his sister, Jeanne.

He was a star football and baseball player at both schools. He joined the Marines and instead of going to battle, he was asked to teach new recruits to complete their GED’s. He then attended Fitchburg State University, where he received a Bachelor of Science degree in Education. He later received a Master’s in Education degree from the University of Connecticut. He was the loving Father of five children, Grandfather of eleven, Great Grandfather of twenty and Great, Great Grandfather of one. He leaves his daughter, Cheryl Eisenhaure of Gilmer, TX, son, John Eisenhaure of Enfield, CT, daughter, Jeanne Eisenhaure of Coinjock, NC, son, Edward Eisenhaure (wife Kathy Eisenhaure) of West Suffield, CT and son, James Eisenhaure (wife Carol Bernstein) of Brentwood, NH.

Ike loved his family, playing and watching sports, gardening and sharing stories of his family historical significance. He was an innovative and respected principal and administrator at Avon Middle School. He coached football at Avon High School, as well as many of his kids’ teams over the years. He will be missed for his dry, but powerful sense of humor, his few but impactful words, and his love for his wife and family.
The family extends a heartfelt thank you to Brookdale Elizabeth City and Community Hospice Care for the extraordinary care and consideration given to Ike.
A private family service will be held late summer. Twiford Funeral Home, 405 East Church Street, Elizabeth City, NC is assisting the Eisenhaure family. Online memorial condolences may be sent to the family at www.TwifordFH.com.

Condolence from Delores Seymour on May 28th, 2020 6:15 pm

I have to say, this is what I remember about him & indeed it was his dry sense of humor. I used to go to Brookdale & sing with a group. I can say that I enjoyed talking with him. He was a nice person.

Condolence from Peggy Stanley Bray on May 28th, 2020 7:26 pm

Jeanne I am so sorry for the loss of your Father. He was such a nice man and I know he will be missed by many. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Jeanne – I was sorry to read of your Dad’s passing, but enjoyed learning more about his interesting life. Every time I visited my mother at Brookdale, I would see him.

You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Ike was an amazing principal and person at AMS. He was professional, approachable, and supportive. His guidance became the foundation of my long teaching career for which I will always be grateful. He will be missed by many and remembered forever.
My sincere condolences.

Ike, was the principal at Avon Middle School when I started teaching. I remember his kind smile and that his door was always open. We often talked at athletic events at the high school. One of the nicest people I have ever worked with.

Having grown up in Avon and attending local schools there, “Ike” was one of my many principals. I most remember him as a gentle giant, a man who’d roam the halls with a quiet, kind demeanor. Never too excited, always a large presence and command stature, but a kind gentleman.
I’m sorry for your loss.

Condolence from wayne holcombe on May 31st, 2020 9:52 am

So sorry to read of Mr. Eisenhaures passing, almost 60 years along from him serving as my fifth grade teacher, there is still no way I could call him ‘Ike’. His presence in our classroom and the respect he commanded, and deserved, would never allow that familiarity. There are several stories and anecdotes that he passed on to us that still spark a smile and a memory in my day to day life. I will always remember him fondly and I finally forgave him the D grade he gave me for my class project that I figured deserved at least a B at the time. His grade was probably the more accurate assessment of my talents at that stage. I thank him for many life lessons and one of the best school years of my childhood.

My condolences to the family Ike was a very nice man always had a smile he will be missed

Condolence from Gerry W Whitehead on May 31st, 2020 12:30 pm

I remember meeting Myron once or twice at Hamilton Heights in West Hartford, CT, where Jeanne and I worked in the 1990s. His gentle strength and kindness were evident, even in these brief encounters. I can’t imagine your family’s sadness at his passing.

Condolence from Brad Fox on May 31st, 2020 5:43 pm

Great Coach, Great Teacher and Great Man! God bless Coach Ike!

Condolence from Armand J. Regalbuti on June 1st, 2020 7:54 am

Our friendship goes back many years . As former principal at Kosciusko Middle School and Assistant Executive Director of Middle Schools, Ike and I attended many meetings and conferences. He was “one of the boys” always willing to serve on a committee and assist the Connecticut Association of Schools to provide the best for students and teachers. It was a pleasure knowing and working with Ike. He was one of the best. He will be missed

Condolence from Judy Jones on June 1st, 2020 9:54 am

To the Eisenhaure family,
I knew Mr Eisenhaure when I was growing up in Avon. He became a friend of my father and they often played basketball on Saturday mornings at the High School. He was a kind and gentle man and an accomplished leader in the Avon CT community.
I remember him with respect an affection.
Godd bless him and you whole family.
Respectfully,
H. Scott Smith AHS Class of 1968.
