The last of my brothers (brother-in-law) now all of my siblings are gone. Jake was a Great son, brother, husband, father, grandfather & friend. He will be missed by many. Such sad news to here today. Jake married my sister in 1965 and instantly became one of the family. He took good care of my sister and their children: Samuel, Laura and Penny. He loved his grandchildren: Alicia, Samantha, Morgan and Samuel. Jake was proud to have been a soldier in the United States Army. I remember him talking to my parents about Fort Knox. Jake treated me better than a blood brother. May he Rest In Eternal Peace. He is now with the Angels.
