My dear Thelma and family: I cannot begin to tell you how sad I was to hear of Hal's death. I worked with him closely for 16 years on the Rotary Arts & Crafts Festival. He was my supporter, my advisor, my counselor, my confidante and my friend for every one of those sixteen years. He was also an annual supporter of my fundraising for Community Care Hospice Services and for Ed's House. He knew that a hospice had been my dream for 10 years or more. He was a lovely, generous, totally genuine person. I considered him a friend. I will miss him terribly. Am sending virtual hugs to you all. Selena Forsyth

My heartfelt sympathy to Hal's family, especially Thelma. I met Hal a number of years ago at Mark's Greenhouse where I work. He was such a pleasure to 'design' window boxes for- red and white- and I looked forward to his smile every season when he came in to place his order. Hal was always patient and thoughtful of others regardless of how busy we may have been at the time. Like so many we will miss him and all the warmth he brought to our days by his presence. I hold you in my thoughts and prayers. Warmest regards Sandra

Lori & Bernie Martine - July 1, 2021

Auntie Thelma, Lynn, Ron & Sheila. I am sending you love and hugs! I want you to know that Uncle Hal was always larger than life for me. A shiney secret gem. He was always there, at a distance. I loved how he was with my Mom and Dad. He relaxed in the story and joke telling and card games that always abounded during family visits. That's how I see him now....pouring a drink and settling in with Dot and Howard to reminisce. Love you all. Till we meet again. Lori

Dearest Thelma and family, we are deeply saddened to hear the news of Hal's passing. He holds such a dear spot in our hearts and memories. When we moved next door to you, we had no idea that we would be blessed with grandparent figures for our children, and beloved storyteller/friend. He was such a gentle soul with dedication to his family, his community and charitable service. He would always take time to help out when needed, and we eagerly awaited for your homecoming after winter. He will be missed, and he will be graciously remembered by our family. Sending hugs xo

Steine Campbell - July 1, 2021

Please accept my deepest sympathies on the passing of your loved one. When I joined RBC, I had the pleasure of interacting with Mr. Jacobsen, as I squatted on his floor as the 1st female and 2nd staff in the IT Dept ( and we didn’t even use that term then:0)) I also had the pleasure of performing an artistic piece at his retirement party. That was a blast he thoroughly enjoyed! He was a giant gentleman of a man then and I’m sure to the end! May God comfort you all, especially his devoted and loving wife.

John Wigle - June 28, 2021

I am saddened at the passing of a wonderful man and friend who I have known for over 20 years via OTOW and for whom I have the greatest respect. He made friends easily and contributed to the good life there. Hal had a wise leader quality about him but was down to earth too. For example, he was always involved in the bowling green repair days. He was a much deserved Life Member of the OTOW Lawn Bowls Club, serving as it’s president twice. I went to him several years ago to tell him I was unable to find anyone who who would was willing to be the next club president. He simply said I’ll do it. That was Hal. I am so grateful I knew him. My sincere condolences to his family and especially Thelma and Linda. John

We are very saddened at Hal's passing. We met Hal and Thelma in 2004 when we became neighbors. Very quickly we became close friends. Hal loved to garden and took great pride in his plantings. Many evenings where spent having dinner and enjoyable conversation. Hal would enjoy a cigar on the deck when Thelma was out playing bridge and would throw the cigar butt over the hedge on our side so Thelma wouldn't know. Hal will be remembered as a humble man who was very proud of his family, a very good friend to many people and a man who cared about the community. Hal has touched many lives and will always be remembered. It was an honor and a privilege to have known him. God speed Hal.

Close to thirty years ago we made the move to Cobourg. Little did we know just how special and incredible our neighbors would be. From the moment we met Hal, he made us feel like family. Hal was the most compassionate, kind, and caring person. He was truly rare. Over the years our two families came together and created so many beautiful memories that we will cherish forever. We will hold on to his contagious smile, his sense of humor, and above all, the love he shared for everyone he knew. We will see you again, neighbor. So much love to the Jacobsen & Dixon family. The Miezlaiskis family.
