Isaac Horton Aycock (Ike) passed away April 20, 2021 at Insignia Assisted Living of Newnan, Georgia
after several medical challenges he encountered late in life.
Family, athletics, education and an inquisitive nature were the pillars upon which he
constructed his life. He embodied a life lived to the fullest and brought joy to all he interacted with.
Named after his paternal grandfather, Ike was born in Coweta County, Georgia on May 25, 1937,
number eight of ten children born to the late Elisha and Mary Etta (Brown) Aycock. He was preceded
in death by four sisters: Annie Lee Truitt, Mary Ruth Carter, Mattie Clyde Pruitt, Rosa Grier, and four
brothers: Elijah Aycock, Willie Ervin Aycock, James W. Aycock, and Melvin Horace Aycock. Known
as the family historian, Ike traveled the country researching genealogy and the Brown-Aycock lineage.
Having grown up on a farm, from an early age he developed a strong work ethic and lifelong
love of gardening.
Recognized by Coach Henry Seldon during his junior year in high school, football became his
avenue to educational opportunities. Ike accepted and attended Fort Valley State University where he
earned his undergraduate degree in Mathematics and minor in Physical Education, on a football
scholarship. Named All Conference SIAC (Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference) for three
years, he attracted professional football opportunities, however, his post graduate education took
precedence. It is also while attending Fort Valley State University, Ike pledged Omega Psi Phi
Fraternity and remained an active brother the rest of his life.
After graduation, Ike married Willie Mae (Brown) Aycock in 1961; their union lasted thirty
years and produced his only child, Kent. After serving briefly in the United States Army as a military
policeman during the Cuban Missile Crisis, Ike attended the University of Wyoming on scholarship
and earned a Master of Science in Mathematics and Physics in 1969. Following graduation, he
accepted a teaching position in the Baltimore County (Maryland) Public School System and continued
to work there until his retirement in 1994. In August 1998, he married Virginia (Barrett) Aycock in
Although officially retired from the school district, Ike continuously returned to educate the
next generation teaching at the Central Education Center, tutoring individual students, and volunteering
with Rising K-Camp in Newnan, Georgia.
Never one to sit still, Ike loved to fish, and stayed active in bowling leagues, coaching football
and track, officiating in youth sports leagues and enjoyed taking line dancing classes. Wherever he
went, he took his effervescent personality and love of music and people with him.
Those left to cherish his memories are his wife, Virginia Aycock, his son: Kent (Christine), one
granddaughter: Bayli, three grandsons: Ayron (Kadeisha), Jordan and Jonathan. One great grand son:
Adin, one great grand daughter: Sadie Rose, one sister: Katrina Aycock, and a host of loving nieces,
nephews, cousins, and special friends.
