Pat, Just heard from Warner McNeilly that we have lost Fred. Fred was a great friend. We were both SAE's at Vanderbilt and in the same law school class. You may remember I was his best man when you two were married in Japan. Sorry I did not know sooner or I would have tried to make it out there for his funeral.
Dear Pat, Fred and Libby,
We were sorry to read about Fred's passing. May God bring you peace during this difficult time.
Dick and Pat Palmore (former neighbors)
I knew Fred professionally as lawyers representing clients with differing interests, but came to respect his many personal qualities, including sincerity, integrity, unvarnished honesty and -- sometimes most importantly -- good humor and good will. God bless you and your family Fred.
Dear Pat and family,
I was so sad to hear of Fred's passing. Having been your USPS Letter Carrier for the past 13 years, I have laughed and talked with him on many occasions. I remember his excitement when he told me of your 50th wedding anniversary 7 years ago! He will be in your heart forever, and not soon forgotten by those he touched. You and your family are in my prayers and thoughts during your time of loss.
Dearest Pat and Jacobs Family,
We were so sorry to learn of Fred's passing. We were his next door neighbor for many years and cherish our memories. We loved his spunky wit and genteel approach to everything. He will be missed very much!
I was a young lawyer when I met Fred and, unlike some of his contemporaries, he was always a gracious gentleman. He and his partners, particularly John Schell, were the epitome of what it should mean to be a lawyer. I did not know him well but want to add my condolences for his loss as he was a memorable and kind man.
My Dad's partner and a great friend of our family. Fred always inspired honesty and integrity and I truely enjoyed his sense of humor. I have many fond memories of time spent with the Jacobs family. He will be missed. My sincere condolences to Pat, Fred and Libby.
Mr. Jacobs took care of me the night my brother stu was born on March 6, 1961. He has obviously been a part of my life as long as I can remember.....Holidays with the Jacobs, picnics with the Jacobs, good times with the Jacobs. Fred and LIbby still remain incredibly close to our family and always will....Peace be with you as you remember your dad.I'm with you in spirit during these times...
Fred was an incredible man of character, honor, and immeasurable faith - an amazing role model to all of us. He and Pat have been wonderful neighbors and true friends in life and in the Lord. A lot can be said about how clever he was, funny, witty, smart, but at the end of the day I counted him as a true friend and will miss him so much. He was a trusted confidant, always looking out for others and their well being. My love and prayers go out to Pat and the family - and the grandchildren whom he adored.
We are forever thankful to Fred and Pat for their guidance at City Tree Christian School. Fred was always so patient as he worked with us on our many legal school documents. Pat was the chairperson of our City Tree Committee ( the school board). They were truly a team and it was a joy to work with them.
Fred was a true gentleman in every sense of the word. He brought a calm presence to every encounter and I always enjoyed his southern charm. He will be missed but will be remembered by those who knew and loved him. He will live on in their thoughts.
I have many memories growing up with the wonderful Jacobs family. Fred was an amazing dad and I feel blessed to have known him. I miss my dad everday, but always thankful for the wonderful memories. Love to you all during this time and my prayers are with you!!
Fred was truly a fine man and David and I enjoyed his company when we met at his home. Our fond and loving wishes to Pat and the family. Sondra and David Gast
Libby your dad had a wonderful sense of humor I definitely liked him even though I wasn't around him that much
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
