Brent Jacobsen

Ron was my older brother, 9 years my senior. Ron was born in 1943, and travelled to Nebraska with his parents that same year. He and his mother stayed in Nebraska with mom's parents during the war, while dad served in the Army. After the war, when dad returned, they moved back to Oregon, where mom and dad raised a family of three boys. Ron was a great brother, always supportive and full of encouragement. Attached is a photo of Ron in his father's arms before he left for the war. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him.
