Celebration of Life Edmund Robert (Bob) Jacobs
1943 – 2022
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Bob Jacobs. Bob served the citizens of Whitehorse with professionalism and great pride for 42 years. He first joined the City of Whitehorse Fire Department as a Volunteer in February, 1966 and retired with the rank of Platoon Chief in 2008.
Bob leaves behind his wife of 55 years, Angela Jacobs; his children Peter (Tracey), Paul (Jolene), and Crystal (Jordan); his grandchildren Jake (Brittni), Jessie (Will), Kyle, Hannah, Cadence, Knox, and great-grandchildren Daisy and Minnie.
A life so beautiful deserves a special celebration for an unforgettable man and we know that he would want us to not dwell on the sad, but remember the good.
A Celebration of Life for Bob will be held
at the Kwanlin Dün Cultural Centre
Saturday, July 30, 2022, at 1:00 p.m.
Rest in Peace
