Jacob Wayne Ward
February 28, 1991 - July 5, 2021
Jacob Wayne Ward, 30, of Marsing, Idaho, formerly of Hagerman, passed away unexpectedly on July 5, 2021, at his home. Jacob was born February 28, 1991, in Hailey, Idaho.
Jacob was known for having a kind spirit, an infectious laugh, and a fun sense of humor. He loved spending time with his family, especially his precious daughter, Keira, whom he adored. He would help anyone that needed it in any way he could. Jacob found beauty in the parts of life others often overlook and took the time to write and reflect on what he noticed. Fiercely independent, he lived life on his terms and was rarely bored; he would immerse himself in video games, music, and movies and took an early interest in blacksmithing, anime, and martial arts. One day, he hoped to travel to Japan.
Jacob was an irreplaceable son, friend, brother, and dad, and his absence will forever stand out. All who loved him are immeasurably grateful for their time with him and are comforted that he is at rest and in peace.
He is survived by his father, Chris P. Ward (Larna) of Hagerman and his mother Rosemary Toone Taylor- Mobley (Bob) of Marsing; his daughter; Keira Marie Ward, two brothers; Benjamin Ward (Sara Miller) of Kuna, and Joshua Ward of Hagerman; three sisters; Christina Wiser (Donovan) of Filer, Rebecca Ward (Bill Diehl) of Buhl, and Justine Krivanec (Monty) of Nampa; two grandmothers; Edith Ward of Twin Falls, and Delila Toone of Las Vegas, Nevada. He is also survived by his daughter's mother, Hilary Hatch.
He is preceded in death by two grandfathers, George Ward & James Toone Jr.; one niece, Allyson Caputo; and one nephew, Christopher Caputo.
A celebration of his life will be held Saturday, July 24, at the LDS church in Hagerman, Idaho, from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
