Alhermizi, Isaac; affectionately known as “Ike” to the greater Detroit community; passed away on December 3, 2014. He is survived by his loving wife of 52 years, Nouria Kizy Alhermizi; and their children, Vickie Alhermizi (Mohammad Alcaptan), Mark Alhermizi (Mary), Tina Alhermizi, Vivian Kasmikha (Oday Kasmikha); and their grandchildren, Maximilian Alhermizi and Zoe Kasmikha. Ike was born in Baghdad, Iraq and immigrated to the United States in 1965. He studied at Lewis College of Business in Detroit while working for relatives in the grocery business saving money to one day open his own store. His hard work paid off, leading him to build the iconic and successful, Ike’s Party Shoppe in Southfield and own Pomeroy’s Fish Market in West Bloomfield. With all of his success, he never forgot about his family and friends back in Iraq. He was instrumental in assisting many people move to the U.S. by helping them acquire Visas, find jobs and homes. Ike was very proud to be a U.S. citizen, which led him to be very active in politics and the Republican Party. In addition to running for local and state office, he was a member of the “Say YES to Michigan” and The Wetlands committees. His tireless efforts as a fundraiser and advocate for Republican candidates earned him the honor of being a distinguished guest at both the Reagan and Bush inaugurations. Ike cherished his family and was an avid believer in the importance of education and hard work. He continuously stressed this importance to his children who have degrees from Wayne State University and the University of Michigan. Ike’s children continue his legacy by instilling these same values and beliefs in their children, nieces and nephews. In his later years, Ike was an active and beloved member of the Gas Station TV team, a company started by his son. Ike was always there to lend a helping hand and impart words of wisdom to the team. To those that knew Ike, he will best be remembered for the way he would always make you feel welcome in his home or place of business. He always had a friendly smile, a twinkle in his eye, a kind word to say and delectable food and drink to be shared. May he rest in peace. Memorial Visitation Sunday December 7, 2014.
