Timothy Eisert, age 64, of Harborcreek, died on Monday, June 18, 2018, at Select Specialty Hospital, after a short illness.  

He was born in Erie, Pa., on July 30, 1953, to the late Jerome and Winifred Evans Eisert.

Tim had previously been employed at York Seaway Industrial Supply and most recently at Port Erie Plastics.

He was a faithful servant of Our Lady of Mercy from second grade being an altar boy, to being an advisor to altar boys, to music ministry to most currently small faith communities. His journey with small communities brought a passion for being a part of the Santa Claus / St. Nicholas tradition. He would go various places during advent dressed in his red Carhart jacket and Santa hat with sprig of holly. He was often mistaken by children as the "real" Santa but they were rewarded with candy canes just the same and told to be good.

In addition to his parents, Timothy was preceded in death by his siblings, Michael Eisert, Jean Eisert and Sandra Morgan; sister-in-law, Mildred Eisert.

He is survived by his wife of 45 years, Martha "Marty" Falderoff Eisert , whom he married on Aug.19, 1972; children, Alessandra (Ali) Hildum (Donald) of North East, Danielle Eisert of Harborcreek, Samantha Eisert-Johnston (Aaron) of Saegertown, Gabriel Eisert of Erie, Nathan Eisert (Sue Sieber) of Millcreek, Veronica Eisert (Adam Yanalunas) of San Diego; siblings, Mary Lou Hopkins of North East, Gerald Eisert of West Virginia, Cherryl Jones of North East, and Patrice Eisert of Erie; grandchildren, Devon, Cheyenne, Wyatt, and Olivia Hildum, Jacinda, Kaia, Trinity, and Zaine Eback; several nieces and nephews.

Services were held at Our Lady of Mercy Roman Catholic Church, 837 Bartlett Road, Harborcreek, PA 16421. 

In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to Our Lady of Mercy Roman Catholic Church or Shriners Hospital for Children, 1645 W. 8th St., Erie, PA 16505; or St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105.
