It is with heavy hearts the family of Morley Jacobs announce his peaceful passing at the age of 89 years on March 17, 2022, in Lloydminster, SK.
Morley was a loving husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. Morley was predeceased by his wife Jean, his parents, Lila and John Jacobs; his brother Lorne and his sisters Pat, Arleen and Evelyn.
Morley will be forever in the hearts of his son Doug (Sharon); grandchildren Rachelle (Tyler) Axani and Ryan Jacobs; his great-granddaughters Elliott Grace and Leighton Everly; sister Marguerite (Lorne) Andersen; brothers Gordon and Russell (Sharon), as well as several nieces and nephews.
Morley was born in Lloydminster, Alberta on August 17, 1932 and moved to Saskatchewan in the early 1950’s where he met Jean and they were married in 1956.
With Morley’s job in the oilpatch they moved to several different towns over the years, making many friends along the way and in 1993 they moved back to Weyburn. Morley loved to joke around, and everyone knew his infectious laugh.
Morley was an extremely talented woodworker and made several pieces of furniture for their home, and for the homes of many friends and family. He was also a jack of all trades and could fix anything.
Morley cherished his time with his friends at Silver Heights Bible Church and the family would like to thank them for all they did for him while he was in Weyburn. A special thank you to Pastor Ken Easterbrook and his wife Cathy, and Jeff and Diane Greening. They always brightened Morley’s day.
The family would also like to extend a special thank you to Morley’s friend, Kathleen, who was there with him during his stay at the hospital. They would also like to thank the doctors and staff of the Lloydminster Hospital for their care during his short stay there.
The family will not be holding a funeral service.
