Jacob, Joseph. At the Haldimand War Memorial Hospital, Dunnville.
Joe Jacob loving father to Michelle and Adam. Extremely proud Cubba (grandfather) to Justyce Corbett. Joe will be lovingly remembered by all of his nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews and their families. He was a very proud Uncle because family was everything. His parents established Jacob’s Confectionary in 1905 and it quickly became a a main attraction for many. Famous for their Cherry Coke, Roasted Peanuts, Fries and Gravy and eventually the Juke Box.
Jacob’s was woven into the fabric of life in Dunnville, you were always welcomed with big smiles and open arms and unlimited generosity. It was home to Terrier Breakfasts, Mudcat Hockey meetings as Joe was on the Executive, “Town Hall” meetings at the first table where I am certain many of the world’s problems were solved over a cup of his famous coffee! Joe was the steady beat at the drums for the band On The Wagon which many will remember from the Mudcat Festival Parades. Joe was a surrogate father and grandfather to so many people, he was a practical joker and a genuine friend. Joe was a long standing Habs Fan and ready to talk sports at a the drop of a hat.
Predeceased by his parents Richard and Mary Jacob, his brothers John, Tom, George and sisters Marie and Lila. Joe was very proud of his Lebanese Heritage instilled in him by his parents and extended family. Very special thanks to Dr. Kobah and nursing staff for the wonderful care you provided to Joe. Donations to Heart and Stroke (heartandstroke.ca) or the Hockey Canada Foundation (hockeycanada.ca) would be appreciated by the family.
