Treasured Pop of Lee and Scott, Bohdan and Ines, Great grandpop of Cooper, Ashton, Lawson and James.
As I sit and look across the sea, I think of years gone by,
Of a Man who taught me how to laugh, and sometimes how to cry.
He had a smile for everyone, a giving heart so true,
He’d give a swaggie his last quid and say “I hope it sees you through”.
He had a sense of humor as everybody knows,
Even in his dying hour he said “Give my love to Rose”.
I have to stop writing now and wipe away my tears,
So have fun up in heaven Dad, and don’t drink all the beer.
Go the Pies!
Kevin Jacobs left home on 13.1.2022,
your reign of practical jokes and stories of times past has come to an end, your wild and mostly fraudulent stories will be repeated by those who love you.
Your practical jokes will encourage the generations after you to not take life so seriously and to know there is always room for laughter no matter the circumstances.
The love, endless laughter and tears of joy and sometimes fear, will forever stay with us
Dad and friend to Di and Terry.
Poppy Jake to Katie, Marty, Dylan and Edie, Nadine, Patrick (dec), Terri, Loki and Archie, Elli, Jai, Thor, Tamra and Ivar.
Beloved dad of Robyn and Alan. Cherished Pop to Carly and Andrew, Deanne and Terry, Tennille and Mal. Adored Poppy Kev to Jacob, Brittany, Samuel, Bridie, Rohan, Ethan, Ella, Avery and Laini.
A wonderful father, Poppy, Grandpoppy and man.
Thanks for the love, the laughs, laughs and more laughs and the Hobbyards.
Gary, Merryl, Lincoln, Olivia, Natalie, Audrey, Felix and partners.
You told your last yarn and your last corny joke,
Last sip of whiskey and last puff of smoke,
Sewn your last footy, your last dog lead and collar,
Checked out the form guide and bet your last dollar.
Dad have a wonderful afterlife where the rabbits are plenty, the ferrets and nets are at the ready and the greyhounds always run fast.
Love you always and forever in our memory
Rod, Carmel, Mitchell and Broderick.
Dad, Pop, Kev.
An incredible life so magnificently lived. Your generosity of spirit, kindness, love and humour will be missed so much. You always were and always will be deep within our hearts.

Now my Guardian Angel
Give Caesar a pat for me
Forever in our hearts
