He began selling shoes at Chandler’s, and Fashion Bootery in the 50’s, then Lindy’s in the 60’s until he opened his own shoe store “Soreano’s Wide Shoes” at Bellevue Square in the 80’s. He was a natural salesman and his customers loved him. Ike’s greatest joy in life came from spending time with his family, especially his 16 Grandchildren. Whether is was going to the casino with Mickey, a school sporting event with Elliott or Spencer, teaching Isaac how to drive, helping Katie and Ethan with the farm animals, attending school functions with Henry or Quinn, gardening with Vivian or just hanging out with Ruby – he ALWAYS did it with a smile and ALWAYS made it more fun.
