Someone described him as follows: “A gentle giant, and a loud hardy laugh. Michael Jacobs was one of a kind where there are none others like him. Kind, thoughtful and hard working. He wore his weathered hands like a trophy. A symbol of his hard work, commitment and dedication to his family.” We love you! You will live on through us all. Rest in peace!
