A friend and business colleague posted the following upon hearing of his passing: "Ike was one of the brightest, kindest and funniest guys I know.wicked story teller with a smile that lit up the room. In business, he truly was a "Closer" and had a way of turning prospects into clients and clients in to friends, sometimes all in the first meeting. Ike was a wild and sensitive soul, may his memory be a blessing to us all."
