Melvin J. Jacobs passed away Wednesday January 29.
Dear Uncle Melvin, This is just a quick note to a special guy with some amazing attributes which we should all learn from and aspire to.
A family man always interested in what the next generations are up to with sagely words of advice.
A smiling chess player who could beat Jimmy most of the time, always fair but with some sneaky chess moves. A successful business man, honest, savvy and smart.
A cyclist who never gave up, Pan Mass 100 miles, 80 years old – no problem. Fall off get back on – no problem, break some bones get back on – no problem.
An ace driver swirling in and out of traffic in Florida and Massachusetts. Don’t know the way, no worries, you have Elane to direct you!!
A sporty guy known for picking up his nieces and nephews taking them to YMCA to challenge them at tennis, handball or any game with a ball required.
Melvin – you are always the guy who would light up the room at party with your cheeky smile, wit, humor and sound advice.
Wow so many amazing attributes you truly are a special guy!
Melvin’s memorial service will be Thursday March 5, 2020 at 4pm Beth Tikvah Synagogue, 1459 Pine Ridge Road Naples, Florida 34105.
