Bob Jacoby, Goldmyer Director and friend, passes away

Unexpected and sad news comes from the Goldmyer Hot Springs community that Bob Jacoby has passed away. I've had the pleasure of Bob's friendship over the past several years . . . both at Goldmyer HS and enjoying discussions on Scenic HS. His friendly, easygoing demeanor will be missed by everyone who knew him. Rick

From Chuck at Goldmyer:

This is a sad time for the Goldmyer community. Bob Jacoby, a good friend, long time Director, volunteer, and general all around great guy died suddenly about 10 days ago. His cheerful demeanor, willingness to pitch in to accomplish countless projects, and cooking skills at work parties where he had the famous "Bob Kebobs", pizza or salmon cooked on the grill will be greatly missed. Bob was largely responsible for designing and building the cabana, propane and wood sheds, and was hard at work on the new tool shed.
Bob's memorial and celebration of life will be this Saturday, Oct. 20, 2007 at The Center for Urban Horticulture at 11AM. The Center is located at 3501 NE 41st St in Seattle, not far from the University Village shopping center and Montlake. As Bob had many interests and friends and family, a big turn-out is expected. There will be a service, followed by 'Discovery Time'. The Jacoby family wishes the Discovery Time to be an opportunity for folks to tell stories and memories about Bob. Music and munchies will follow, including a 'Milk and Newman-Os' corner with one of Bob's favorite snacks of Paul Newman's version of Oreo cookies and dunking milk. John Jacoby will be playing some of his and his brother Bob's compositions. Things will wind down by 3pm.
