Jacob G. "PawPaw" Weeks

OKEECHOBEE - Heaven became a little bit louder and a little bit happier when PawPaw arrived! Surely he was greeted at the gates by the love of his life, his Margaret Darlin'. The praying man is now standing at the feet of his Saviour. Everyone that knew him knows without a doubt - the Lord is showering him with love and telling him Well Done My Good and Faithful Servant! Welcome Home! He was Friend, Mentor, Teacher and Prayer Warrior to thousands. He was a member of the Okeechobee Church of God, where he and MawMaw started the children's ministry and outreach program - touching thousands of children. He served in the United States Navy. He is survived by his three children, Steve Weeks, Sr. (Trish), Pat Smith (Dennis) and Dale Ann Watford (Jimbo); 16 grandchildren; 17 great grandchildren; one great great granddaughter (with another on the way). His adopted children and grandchildren are too great to number. A memorial service for Jacob Weeks will be held at the Okeechobee Church of God - 301 NE 4th Ave., Okeechobee, Fla on Saturday, Feb. 16, 2013 at 10:30 a.m. Lunch and good fellowship will be provided after the memorial service in the church social hall. The family is requesting donations be sent to Hospice of Okeechobee in lieu of flowers. The mailing address is 411 SE 4th St. Okee, Fla. 34974.
