David Jacobson, age 69, of Terry passed away on Wednesday, April 11, 2012 at the Sidney Hospital in Sidney, Montana after a valiant fight with cancer.
David was born and grew up just outside Scobey, Mont. His father passed away when he was very young and life was difficult. He found comfort tagging along with his friend and cousin, Ella Mae. Early in Dave’s life he worked for Morris Murphy and ran cows on Ruth Fisher’s place at Scobey.
David lived in Terry since the early 1980s, working for different ranches in Southeastern Montana. Before his cancer treatments, he had worked for Frank Eaton and Sons as a mechanic. He was handy at fixing machinery and needed very few tools to work. David was an asset to their ranch shop. David also loved working with horses, his most prized horse was a mare named Red Ruby.
David is survived by his children, Theresa, Todd, Ronald and Veronica, 5 grandsons, 4 granddaughters, 1 great-grandson and 3 great-granddaughters. David is preceded in death by his parents, Severin and Emma, sisters E. Marie, Pearl and Opal, and brothers Larry and Jake.
