Klingman, Jacob* - Henrietta Township  
Live, Laugh, Love is a great description of how Jacob approached life. Life not measured by the breaths he took in his 22 years here with us, but by the legacy he created that will continue to impact everyone that had the privilege of being in his life. Jacob's legacy teaches us the importance of faith in Jesus Christ and His love for us, time spent with family and friends, and laughter. A wise man once said "a merry heart does good like medicine". Jacob made sure everyone received their daily dose of medicine. His bright smile, love for the Lord, and contagious laughter made a lasting impression on everyone, whether you knew him for a brief moment or 22 years. Jacob was passionate about many things, but he really enjoyed spending time along any bank of water dropping a line to see if he could lure a bite. He caught the fish fever from his Grampy Waldron at a very early age. I can just imagine those two yukking it up along the river of life with fishing poles in hand. We'll see ya soon, buddy. Love and miss you dearly. Jacob gained his Heavenly reward at the age of 22 on Sunday, July 26, 2015 at University Hospital of Cleveland surrounded by family following a lifelong battle with Cystic Fibrosis. He was born May 7, 1993 in Lorain, Ohio. Jacob has lived in Henrietta Township for the last 16 years. He was a graduate of Firelands High School with the class of 2011. Jacob enjoyed helping his grandfather Frank on the family farm. He was also an active member of New Beginnings Church. Survivors include his parents Matt and Gwen Klingman (nee: Waldron) and his sisters Gabrielle and Savannah all of Henrietta Township; his paternal grandparents Frank and Gaye Klingman of Henrietta Township; his great grandmother Jessie Watts of Clarksville, Tennessee; his maternal grandmother Christina Waldron of Clarksfield, Ohio; and his fiance Charde Blocker of Winter Haven, Florida. He was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather Tim Waldron in 2013. Friends may join the family in celebrating Jacob's life on Saturday August 1, 2015 from 2-6:00 p.m. for an open house at German's Villa; 3330 Liberty Avenue, Vermilion. A memorial service will start at 6:15 p.m. Dress is casual and a meal is provided. The family suggests that in lieu of flowers, memorial contributions be made to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation; Northern Ohio Chapter; 8001 Sweet Valley Drive, Suite 3, Valleyview, Oh 44125 or www.cff.org to donate online.

Klingman family and has made available for the community's convenience an on-line registration book as well as additional information to help facilitate expressions of compassion.
