Dennis L. Jacobs, 67, passed away on Sunday, July 8th, 2018.

Dennis was born August 26, 1950 in Des Moines, IA to Fred and Marclyn (Hawk) Jacobs. He married his wife Cindy (Craig) Jacobs on December 20th, 1968. He worked for Bob Brown Chevrolet before retiring in 2004.

Dennis was a true family man. Family was everything to him. Nothing was more important to him than his family. He enjoyed his many dogs over the years (Major, Missy, Summer, Shilo, and Jazz) with each one spoiled more than the next. He liked fishing, bowling, golf, watching his brother Craig race cars and watching his grandkids sporting events. But, the one thing he loved the most was spending as much time as possible with his family and his bear Waldo at his cabin in Spirit Lake. He was quick witted with a good sense of humor. He liked a good joke but would rather play one on someone. He coined the phrase “Gooder as he would always say “That’s a Gooder” when he liked something. He was the only Trash card game champion who never won a game because of the grandkids.

To his wife Cindy, you were the love of his life, the one and only. The care and dedication you have gave him over the past years is a true testament to the love you both shared. He wants you to know he was truly blessed.

Our hearts are broken, hopefully time will heal. He will forever be missed but always in our hearts. We love you dad, you are our hero.

Dennis is survived by his wife of 50 years, Cindy Jacobs; sons, Doug (Michelle) Jacobs and David (Temeshia) Jacobs both of Urbandale, IA; grandchildren, Makenzie, Nathan, Pixi, Evie and Indy; brother Craig (Tracy) Jacobs of Urbandale. He was proceeded in death by his parents.

The family will receive friends from 5:00 pm-7:00 pm Friday, July 13, 2018, at Westover Funeral Home in Des Moines. A private family service will be held in the future. Memorials may be made to the family to be used for a future memorial.
