Kurt Thomas Jakob

Kurt Thomas Jakob, 62, passed away Thursday, Nov. 24 at his home in El Jebel of natural causes. He was born Oct. 13, 1949 in Norwalk Conn.

Kurt was a longtime Roaring Fork Valley resident. He was a good friend with a good heart, dry sense of humor and a cantankerous spirit. He had a love of motorcycles and antique cars.

Growing up in a military family, Kurt spent time in Canada, Germany, Japan and Alaska. He will be missed by all. He was a member of the Sons of the American Legion and had worked at Napa Auto in El Jebel for many years.

He is survived by his brothers, Bob of Tampa Bay, Fla. and Mike of Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., and their families.

We will be remembering our friend Kurt at El Jebowl on Sunday, Dec. 11, 2011 at 3 p.m. Please join us for food and drinks.
