The short time I knew Jake, I found him to be a wonderful God fearing man, always smiling. He will be missed. He and Joyce were a wonderful couple. I know he will be missed by many!

Dear John and the Lobley family,
Words can't express how very sad and sorry I am to learn of Jake's passing. What a wonderful man and and what a terrific person he was! I remember Jake mostly from our days in Orrington. Jake was always a happy-go-lucky guy who always had a cheerful word and pleasant disposition for his fellow man. With Thelma by his side, they blazed a trail full of fabulous memories. John, you and Judy only enhanced their lives immensely. It must've been something to behold when the Lobleys had a family reunion!
Jake was simply one of the nicest people I'd ever encountered in my life. Please accept our deepest condolences on your tragic loss. May you all find comfort knowing Jake is with God and in Heaven with so many of his family, friends and loved ones. And May God be with you and bless you all now and forever.
As I have done for many years, I shall continue to pray for all the Lobley family.
With sincerest sympathy and love,
Will and Mary Jones
