Edward and Diane Eisiminger Obituary

Our beloved parents Edward “Ike” Lee and Diane Mae Eisiminger, passed away after 47 years of marriage in Alamogordo, New Mexico.  Edward “Ike” Lee Eisiminger, Sr., 87, passed away January 24, 2022, and Diane Mae Eisiminger, 77, followed her love Ike in death 15 days shy of 2 years later January 9, 2024.  They were both surrounded by loving family members as they passed peacefully from their journeys here on earth.  

Ike Eisiminger was born September 21, 1934, in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania to Robert “Bob” and Margaret “Peggy” Eisiminger.  Ike was a loving husband, father, and grandfather.  He was very easy-going, witty, kind, caring and helpful to all he met.  He was an avid motorcyclist and mechanic, there wasn’t anything mechanical he couldn’t fix.  Whenever Ike rolled into a new town, he would seek out the motorcycle shops and make fast friends with the owners.  Whereas he would then often acquire a side job helping repair motorcycles.  All the while talking “shop” with everyone he came across which he avidly loved.  Ike served in the United States Air Force as an Electronic Warfare Countermeasures Technician until he honorably retired in June of 1976 with the rank of Tech Sargent after having served 22 ½ years.

Diane Eisiminger was born October 1, 1946, in Williston, North Dakota to Gilbert and Hazel Berg.  She was a beautiful person inside and out, a loving wife, stepmother, and grandmother.  Diane always had kind advice and encouraging words for her stepchildren, neighbors, and those in need around her.  She was family famous for all her yummy recipes, including her meatloaf and award-winning chili “Slim Jim Chili”.   A few of her recipes were published in her local newspaper back in Walhalla, North Dakota.  Diane worked as a Wal-Mart cashier for many of the years she lived in Alamogordo always bringing her bright smile, sunny positive disposition, and kind words to all who passed through her checkout stand.
Ike and Diane were best friends from the time they met and set out adventuring and enjoying the journey of life together.  They rode with friends old and new to Moto-Guzzi Rallies all over the country.  Roper, their beloved dog, rode along on his “roost” mounted on the gas tank.  Ike and Diane RV’d the country, acting as camp hosts at many campgrounds, including Wrights Beach, Ca. where many family memories were made.  They settled in Alamogordo, New Mexico after many years of traveling and adventuring across the country; where they lived out their years together surrounded by many amazing neighbors and friends.

Ike was preceded in death by his parents, Bob and Peggy Eisiminger, his brother, Jerry Eisiminger, two of his sons Edward Lee Eisiminger Jr., and Timothy “Tim” Eisiminger and his granddaughter Tess Eisiminger.  He is survived by his twin sons Barry (Christy) Eisiminger, and Bruce (Dana) Eisiminger, and his daughter Kellee “Peacherann” (Billy) Holland, grandchildren Nikolas, Krystina, Lukas, Natalie, Ava and Chloe along with numerous step grandchildren and great grandchildren.
