November 4, 1975 - March 25, 2021

Ira Orlando Isham, also affectionately known as "son, sonny, burrito, burrits", age 45 passed away at home on March 25, 2021.

Ira was born in Littlefork, MN on November 4, 1975 to Ira "Pete" and Doris (Day) Isham.

He grew up in Nett Lake and graduated from Orr High School in 1994. Ira attended college at Mesabi Range and BSU to pursue a degree in computer technology. He had an entrepreneurial spirit and a passion for computers and technology, and anything science or history based.

He was the proud owner of "North Country Computers" for numerous years and was also employed at the Nett Lake School and the Bois Forte Tribal Government as a computer/IT specialist.

Ira enjoyed the outdoors, guiding, hunting and spending time with his father doing the same. He also enjoyed playing pool, spicy foods, working on cars, and golfing. He had a love for music and his best times were spent fishing off the dock with his boys.

Ira is survived by his parents: Ira "Pete" and Doris Isham; lifelong partner Sheryl; sons: Drayvin "Drags" and Ira "Dory" Isham; sisters Teresa (Marcus) Knife Chief, and Billie (Dean) Isham; nieces and nephews: Corey, Jaylen and Sasha Strong, Marissa (Mason) Rose, Felicia Mason, and Chelsea (Mason) Winans; great grandnieces: Kyrie and Isla; and great grandnephews: Kamron and Chance.

His life touched the lives of many through his witty sense of humor, his loyalty, and his good-hearted spirit. He will be missed dearly by his family and friends.
