Tim Jacobs, 66, beloved husband, father, friend, son, brother/brother-in-law and uncle passed away on June 19th, 2022 after a short unexpected illness.
Tim was born in Marion, IN to Durand and Lenore Jacobs. He graduated from Brecksville High School in the Cleveland area and attended Michigan State University. He moved to Gahanna in 1980 and adored this community.
Tim's loving wife, Peggy (née Horne), beloved daughter Jessica and son, James; his mother Lenore (Durand) Jacobs, sister Beth (Steve) Gillispie, extended family, neighbors and friends mourn his loss.
Tim was a respected salesman, an advocate for individuals with disabilities and an active member of the antiquing community. He loved the water, the Cleveland Guardians (Indians), Buckeye football, adventures with friends and family, card games, golf and understanding the histories of old objects which made antique hunting one of his lifelong adventures. In addition to running his own small business, Tim worked for HER Realty, Quaker Homes, Dominion Homes and CV Perry. He was a certified care provider for handicapped individuals for Franklin County. Shortly before his passing, Tim celebrated with Peggy their 42nd wedding anniversary. His love of stories, his kindness and caring, his incredible intelligence and wit will be greatly missed. The world is a smaller place without Tim in it.
Friends may call at the Hill Funeral Home in Westerville on June 30 from 4-6 PM with a celebration of his life to follow at 6 pm. In lieu of flowers, contributions to Faith Mission or charity of your choice is welcome. "Second star on the right and straight on til morning….." J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan
