Obituary of Bryan Eisenhower

Bryan  Eisenhower

Age 34, of Morris, IL died suddenly, Saturday, August 19, 2017 from injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident. He was born June 20, 1983 to Paulina (Amaral) and the late Robert Eisenhower in Arcadia, CA where he lived until the age of 7 years old when he and his family relocated to Morris, IL.

Bryan graduated with the Class of 2001 from Morris Community High School where he enjoyed sports as an active soccer player and three-year starting catcher for the Redskins baseball team. He received a bachelor degree in business from Illinois State University.  Shortly after graduating, he began his career in all facets of landscaping with Lumpp Landscaping which he became a very active owner. He was extremely hands on with amazing customer satisfaction goals.  His proudest moments throughout his career were realized mentoring employees he sought out with challenges or perhaps in need of some guidance, trust and assurance.

He was the beloved husband of Megan (Kielusiak) and caring son of Paulina Eisenhower, both of Morris, IL; dearest nephew of “Cec” (Terry) Fish of CA, Carlos Amaral of MT and Debbie (Rudy) Ampudia of CA; fond cousin of Nathan (Shannon) Amaral of MT, Jennifer (Jj) Prince of CA, Jessica (Ryan) McGinnis of MT, Christina and Laura Ampudia of CA and Ally Ampudia of NY.  Bryan was an awesome cousin to the “little ones” Ireland, Journey, Easton and Harlow all of MT and Mason Prince of CA.  Also surviving are his God parents, Tom and Roseann Sandusky; God children, Kora Ochoa and Eleanor Englert; his in-laws, Tom and Kathy Kielusiak; sister-in-law, Kelli Kielusiak and brother-in-law, Eric Kielusiak. He will also be missed by countless friends and his trusty, loyal canine companion, Ike.

Preceded in death by his father; grandparents, Tony and Laura Amaral and Johnny and Rita Wentzel.

Bryan often described as an adventurer with a great sense of humor and deep laugh when he was on a roll, also possessed much compassion for animals and humans alike.  He seemed to have a gift to befriend so easily, laugh so heartily and love so unconditionally. He felt the responsibility to defend those who couldn’t defend themselves and endeared himself to many of his wife Megan’s students.  He was so proud of her ability to teach and nurture, and conversely, the students to absorb and succeed.

Bryan will be sorely missed but his spirit will remain forever with all those he touched.
