At an early age Jacob loved anything that his father and grandfathers were doing. From construction, hunting, fishing, four wheeling, trucks and tractors. He used those skills they taught him everyday. He was always creative and energetic with his stories. Jacob had the biggest and kindest heart. His dreams and his entire persona were larger than life. He was always the first to offer help to others. He lived life to the fullest. Jacob’s life was a blessing, his memory a treasure. Jacob is loved beyond words and missed beyond measure. Forever in our hearts.\n\nJacob would not want us to mourn him, he would want us to celebrate the life he lived. And that’s exactly what we will be doing. A celebration of his life will be planned for September 2023 to honor and celebrate Jacob. \n\nWe invite all who knew and loved Jacob to celebrate his life by contributing their memories and photos on his memorial page.
