Jacob’s family came to Canada in 1928, settling in Coaldale, Alta., where he remained the rest of his life. He became a Christ follower in his youth. When Jacob married Susie, he became father to her two children, whom he introduced to camping, hunting and fishing. Jacob had almost flawless aim and loved tracking down moose. Jacob did long-haul trucking for Edward’s Rod Weeders until Susie had a baby. He began working for Tru-Mix Concrete in Lethbridge, Alta., so he could watch their son grow up. Jacob had a soft spot for his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Church and studying God’s Word was a vital part of his life. Jacob and Susie joined a Bible study group which kept them leaning on God in success and trial. Psalm 100 describes Jacob’s life.
