Uncle Keith, I will love and cherish my memories of you forever. You were always so supportive and proud of me. And you would always call me your beautiful neice whenever you got the chance. Your love was infectious and your strength was magnanimous. You were taken from us too soon. I will never forget you. I will always keep you in my heart.

Papa, our hearts ache for what could of been. I still can't believe that you were taken from us. Abby and Ben were lucky to have the best papa who loved them beyond words. You would let them do whatever to keep them happy. You would spend hours with them building cookie houses, letting them play hairdresser on you, swimming with them for hours and even making Abby a trophy after she beat you in an egg competition. We promise to talk about you often and put more pictures around so they never forget how much you loved them. You were a sweet and kindhearted and you were loved. I hope you can see that from heaven. You were loved by all.
Our hearts are broken.

I worked with Keith frequently at USArt when I was an art handler/driver and he was an Operations Manager. He was always a gentleman in what was a very tough job. His spirit will be missed.

I met Keith years back out walking our dogs. He also took a picture of myself and 2 different dogs through the years.The last one being last November. I saw him not too long ago out walking the dog, he was so excited that he had been ok'd to get a kidney transplant. My deepest sympathy to his wife, and family. I know he will be dearly missed. He was a nice guy.

Dad, you told us everyday how much you loved us. Sometimes youd call multiple times a day to which youd say by the fifth call How come you dont tell me you love me more? Id say Dad! How many times do you want me to tell you?. Well dad this was the best gift you ever gave us. You loved to love us, and you loved receiving it. I will take good care of Poppy and together Seth and I and mom will get through this. I know that would make you proud.

As a co-worker of Keith's (now working remotely from home) it's very hard for me to imagine not being able to see Keith again. I don't think it's really hit me.
He was so very genuine, always true to himself with such a great understated sense of humor.
Keith could make going to a Dunkin' Donuts drive-thru a hilarious adventure.
Always telling sweet stories about his grandchildren Abby and Ben. When my car was in the shop for a few days I asked him if he could pick me up on his way to work - always a "yes" with no hesitation. If someone needed a hand Keith was always "at the ready." It's not often that one gets the opportunity to meet a truly good, decent human being. I consider myself very lucky to have met one by the name of Keith Jacobs.
My heartfelt condolences go out to Keith's entire family.

I have worked with Keith for many years, he was always looking to help out, lend a hand to everyone around him. After which he would check up on you, He was the one who took my daughters yearbook photo's. A really good photographer!

He is also being missed by the Art Handler / OTR Drivers he supervisor while with U.S.Art, Again, he was their best advocate, always looking to make it better, easier for them while out on the road.

We were all lucky to have known such a wonderful, caring, giving person like Keith.

Miss you Big Dog!

To my brother Keith aka The Hustling Hobo Im so sorry you had to leave us so soon but you didn't go without putting up the fight of the gallant champion that you were. I'm thankful I was able to talk to you just several hours before you made the turn for the worst and tell you I loved you. I hope when I told you a couple times that you were MY HERO that you felt how special you were to me. Looking back I'm sorry I didn't make more of an effort to see you more often. We had plans after you were to get your new kidney that we were really looking forward to sharing in those plans with you & Marcy. You were always so supportive of me and never gave up on me when I was heading down a bad road for many years growing up. We had so much fun together so many priceless memories I will cherish for the rest of my life and reflect on very often. I will look for signs of your spirit to feel your presence. Good bye my brother and thank you for all the many awesome times we had together. I'll love you forever and I will think of you often and keep your spirits Alive within me. Your grateful loving brother Doug
