May 8, 1957 - June 11, 2021
Barry Jacobs of Edmonton, Alberta passed away at his home on June 11, 2021 at the age of 64 years. Barry is remembered as a friend, brother, papa and most importantly, Dad. Barry is survived by his children; Trevor and Vicki Jacobs, Todd and Ange Jacobs, Jordan and Jayne Jacobs, Lindsay and Jesse Groeneveld and Rochelle Rensby along with nine grandchildren, his former wife Gale Jacobs, his three sisters, his brother, and numerous nieces and nephews. Dad is predeceased by his daughter, Melanie Elizabeth Gale Jacobs, and both of his parents, Norman and Ann Jacobs. Barry was born in Grande Prairie, Alberta where he later moved to the Edmonton Area and met Gale. Together they had five children and later he welcomed Rochelle as his own. Barry worked for Brytex Building Systems for 40+ years never missing a single day of work because he enjoyed his job and the people he worked with. Dad had a passion for cooking and building things out of wood in his garage. He loved to teach his kids in the kitchen and in the shop. When us kids get together, we will continue to make some of dad’s favorite meals that we all enjoyed. Dad always wanted to get a classic car. In 2013 that dream became a reality when he purchased his 1966 Chevelle 396 Super Sport he named Betsy. Dad took pride keeping Betsy shined up, and his neighbors will miss seeing the car in the summertime. Most of all, Barry loved his children. Dad will be lovingly remembered and greatly missed. A private ceremony with family and friends will be held in the near future. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to Avery’s Legacy - www.averyslegacy.com to help others in times of loss to promote a healthy grieving and mourning process, or the heart and stroke foundation - www.heartandstroke.ca . Caring for the family is Lyle Reeves Funerals of High River (Craig Snodgrass) 403.652.4242.
