In Memory of Hoyt Jacobs

It’s my unfortunate duty to inform you all that Bernice’s own Hoyt Jacobs was killed this past Saturday.  He was riding his bike on Vernon Boulevard when a private contractor made a right turn and struck and killed our friend.  No charges have been filed, however the police are continuing their investigation.

Anyone who knew Hoyt knew that he was a one of a kind human being.  He was so full of life, and cared for everyone he met.  All of Bernice is shaken by this.  It’s a tragedy that his life was cut short.  He will be missed.

We’re planning a memorial service, something as irreverent and jubilant as he was himself, for the coming weeks.  Please stay tuned for details.
