LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Family and friends of Monroe Isadore remember him as a kindhearted and deeply religious man.
For more than thirty years, Isadore attended services at New St. Hurricane Missionary Baptist Church in Pine Bluff. Church administrator Bonit Morgan said he was well liked by everyone in the congregation.
"To me, he was a man that loved everybody, and he loved worshiping God. He loved God. And, he would get his praise on at church on Sundays," she added. "He was a fixture in this community and to this church. Mister Isadore was here for quite a while."
THV 11 also spoke with Isadore's longtime friend and neighbor Charles Pointer. Pointer helped fix Isadore's lawnmower in exchange for fresh vegetables.
"I'll remember him as a good, old friend," said Pointer, who lives across from Isadore's old home on Olive Street. "He was a very good neighbor, and it's hard for me to understand what happened to him because I know he didn't mess with anyone."
