New Examiner, 7/6/18
Kay Cyril Jacobson returned to his Heavenly Home June 27 on his 87th birthday. He was the first of six children born to Cyril R. and Gladys N. Jacobson in Bloomington, Idaho. Kay was known for his loving heart, empathy and service. He graduated from Fielding High School in 1949. His preference for an education in business was at the Ogden Business College and later attended Weber College and Arizona State University. Kay was always proud to be an American and honorably served his country. During the Korean Conflict he enlisted in the U.S. Air Force for four-and-one-half years and was stationed at the Chitose AFB in Japan where he attended a personnel school.
A member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints he actively served in many capacities. He could often be found giving comfort and cheer to the lonely, sick and afflicted. He was constantly engaged in Temple and genealogical work.
Kay’s employment included working for the IRS, U.S. Postal Service, and General Motors in Los Angeles, California where he retired after twenty eight years. He relocated to Las Vegas, Nevada in 1986 where he loved being near family members. Kay enjoyed visiting with people and kindly welcomed them into his home. He dedicated his life to his parents, family, friends and church. He was a pillar in the community and active in civic affairs. To have a true and genuine friend was to know Kay. All would agree that he demonstrated his willingness at a moment’s notice to be of service and was always thoughtful and generous with his time and means. He is dearly loved and appreciated.
Kay was preceded in death by his parents, Frank Grunig (brother in-law) and Linda Jones Jacobson, (sister-in law). He is survived by a brother Max and sisters Beverly Grunig, Norene Elson (Joseph), Janice Jensen (Kent), Shirley Billingsley (Laron), as well as nieces and nephews who adored him.
On Saturday, July 7th a viewing will be held from 11:30 to 12:30 prior to the service at 1:00 p.m. in the LDS Bloomington Ward Chapel in Paris, Idaho
