Curtiss G. Jacobson, of Franksville, logged his last mile on December 11, 2022 at Ascension Hospital after a brief battle with cancer.  He was born on September 21, 1944, the son of the late Eugene and Alice (Gutknecht) Jacobson.

Curt worked at the family farm in the early years and transitioned into the milk hauling side of the family business.  In the 80s he transitioned to long haul trucking which he did for many years.  In his “retirement” he hauled paper rolls out of Tomahawk locally, right up to this October.  He enjoyed meeting and visiting with fellow truck drivers and friends, fishing and riding the Harley.

Curt had three sons with his first wife, LaRae (Chellevold) – Eric, Thomas and Loren. Eric & Arlene reside in Lodi, CA.  Loren and Sinta reside in Wausau.

Curt’s second wife Sherri Bonich is deceased.  He had three stepchildren, Robert, Brenda and Brian Andrews.

In 1990, he married Lynette (Shorey) Jacobson and gained four stepchildren.  Together they remodeled the homestead farmhouse and then moved on to Tomahawk and later to Fremont.  Throughout the years they went on many trips to visit kids in California, Indonesia, Singapore and Texas.

Curt is survived by his sons; Eric (Arlene) Jacobson, Loren (Sinta) Jacobson, grandsons Thomas (Alyssa) Jacobson, Justin Jacobson, Ray Jacobson, granddaughters Samantha Devine, Raena Jacobson, and Tommi Jacobson.  Stepchildren; Suzanne (George) Davis, Robert (Sandra) Shorey, Roxanne (Chad) Brecke, Rebecca (Gary) Hinkens, and numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren.  Sisters, Laurel Rybka and Judy Neuman, and brother, Keith (Beth) Jacobson and numerous nieces and nephews.

Curt was preceded in death by his son, Thomas and sister, Patricia Reich.

Services will be held at North Cape Lutheran Church on December 29, 2022.  Visitation will be from noon to 2pm, followed by the service and luncheon.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations directly to North Cape Lutheran Church.

    So sorry for your families loss. I only knew him as “The Milk Man”.
    When he was at church he remembered me also!

    We are so sorry for the loss of Curt to so many family members. Jim and I went to high school with Curt and just recently saw him at our 60th Class Reunion in late August…. I am sure he will be sadly missed by all, including us.. May he rest in peace.

    Lynette, Eric & Loren and extended family, Mike & I are so sorry for the loss Curt. He was a great guy who our family has known for many many years since we were kids. I know my dad Donnie is probably downing a few beers with Curt up in heaven.

    I am ever so grateful for the Jacobson family reunion that was held on Grandma and Grandpa Jacobson’s farm in 2010. How great it was to be together again. I remember vividly receiving a kind and loving hug because we had not seen our cousins in many years. Curtis was a hard-working man and I know his family will miss him. My thoughts and prayers are with his loved ones.

    Sending my sympathies. I remember Curt bringing his boys out to spend a week with us in Beetown. Dad loved having you all out for a visit. I think you all went home safe and sound and well fed♥️

    I didn’t know Curtiss personally, but I can say that he was blessed in life with an extended family and friends who cared for him deeply. I say that because of his son Eric whom is of great character and helped me in a time of need. I am praying heart felt prayers for your entire family..
