Joseph Mikhael Ishak

Joseph Mikhael Ishak, 64, was born August 1, 1952 in Tripoli, Lebanon and passed away in Houston, TX May 9, 2017. Joe moved to Daytona Beach Florida to attend Embry-Riddle University where he received his Bachelor Degree in Aeronautical Engineering and met his true love, Angela.

He was a legend in the diamond business and owned J&A Diamond Wholesale. Nothing made him happier than buying a parcel of diamonds. Joe was a great husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend. If he met you once, you were also considered family and there wasn’t anything he wouldn’t do for you. His true joy in life were his wife and his grandchildren.

Joe leaves behind his wife of 45 years and one month, Angela; daughters: Layla (Patrick) Curran and Nadia Ishak; sons: Joseph Ishak and Thomas Ishak; grandchildren: Joseph Ishak, Hope Ishak, Ronnie Lewis, Jake Ishak, Jevin Ishak, Patrick Curran, Zoe Hunter, Trace Curran and Neila Maynard; sisters: Nazha Mcdessi, husband Nasser and Nina Boulos; brothers: Abdullah Ishak, wife Siham and Nazih Ishak, wife Glenda; nephews: Edwin Boulos and Peter Boulos.

  5. My most sincere condolences to the family of Mr. Joe Ishak , Angela your husband was such a wonderful man! I loved to sit and talk with him about jewelry and life in general inside the store he always made me feel like family and welcome there he was a very kind and generous person! If i wouldve known the last time i would ever see him and talk to him was over a nice seafoood buffet dinner at the buffet at Lauberge one sunday afternoon with his nephews…instead of shaking his hand i wouldve hugged him after we were finished with our meal, He smiled at me and said ” Blake come see me anytime at the store i will be waiting for you” and shook my hand… I can remember the good smell on my right hand of his strong gentlemans cologne he had on him, He never knew this but i looked up to him in soo many ways , he was a legend a true Gentleman! Im sad our coin flips over Diamond Rings are over… Im greatful i ever had the pleasure of knowing him in my life, he inspired me in the business and reminded me to never give up on my dreams. He will be sorely missed , his personality, his charm! God Bless Your Family! My Condolences..
