Harold (HUGO)Wayne Jacobs
On Dec. 18th, 2021, In Cheyenne, WY Veterans hospital Harold entered his new life unexpectedly at the ripe ol’ age of 73. Harold is survived by his younger brother Lawrence (Colleen) Jacobs, Niece Jessica (Maclin) Staman and family, Niece Jeana Jacobs (James Brown) and family, Nephew Joshua (Heather) Jacobs and family. His Best Friend Zeke Seegrist and his small circle of good friends. He is joining his loving parents Imogene and Howard Jacobs, Brothers Odell and Linn Jacobs.
Harold was born in Crawford, Ne on Aug. 12, 1948. Graduated Crawford High in 1966. His senior year of high school he joined the Navy reserve and following in his older brothers’ footsteps he served 3 honorable years in the Navy. Throughout high school he spent several summers working for a ranch in the sandhills of Nebraska, this is where her found his love of being a cowboy, horses and rodeo. Somewhere within this timeline he earned his nickname HUGO. This nickname will continue being a part of his life through our stories of him. After returning home from the service, he went to work as a Truck driver in Scottsbluff, Casper then over to Cheyenne where he decided to put roots down with the love of his life Sandy Stoopman. He loved his quiet little ranch and log home. He preferred having piece and quiet over the chaos of town. Harold was a man of very few words, but a heart of gold. When he took you in as friend or family he would show you through his actions not his words. Never ask anyone for help but would be the first to help. I will leave you with this, which I feel fits Harold well. Talk low, talk slow and don’t say too much: John Wayne.
