Richard Jacobs

Army Veteran Richard "Jake" Jacobs, born Aug. 26, 1947, to Perry Jacobs and Nancy Elizabeth Bunch of Galesburg and currently residing in Ozark, Missouri, lost his long battle with cancer at 1:15 a.m. Aug. 1, 2019, with family by his side. He is survived by his devoted wife of 20 years, Barb Jacobs; his children with the late Christine M. May (Jacobs): daughter, Tina Jacobs Hulse of Wataga, and his sons, Scott Jacobs (Gina) of Surprise, Arizona, and Chad Jacobs of Springfield, Missouri; three stepchildren, Paul, Angela and Missy; numerous grandchildren; his sisters, Barbara Helms of Galesburg, Colleen Mackey of Pennsylvania, a late sister Joanne Smith; and his brothers, Mike Jacobs and Perry Jacobs. Jake served his community doing what he loved and retired from the Galesburg Fire Department after 21 years of service. Jake enjoyed Western movies, the country outdoors, family time to include his annual family reunions, being a loving father, grandfather and husband, making memories and catching up with old friends. He is described by many as being true to his faith, a man of many words, hardworking, family man and protector. He has touched the lives of many and will be missed greatly by all who know and loved him. May he rest in peace. A memorial service will be held at 2:00 PM Tuesday, August 6, 2019 in the Cowboy Church, Highlandville, under direction of Adams Funeral Home, Ozark.

Jake was a good man, He always had a smile and was a little ornery, I am proud to say he was my friend. I sure will miss him.
