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.
