Edgar A. Jacobs ( d Jan 11, 1932 )
Edgar A Jacobs, who has been described as a "genuine, constructive pioneer" of Port Angeles, a prosperous plumber here for 30 years, Spanish-American War veteran and prominent member of the Elks Lodge, passed away at Portland this morning.
Service that he put in with the Navy in the Spanish War day gave origin to the ailment that lingered with Mr. Jacobs until his death, according to beliefs he had expressed. While serving in tropical climes he contracted an illness from which he never completely recovered. Death came after he had spent numerous weeks in the veteran's hospital at Portland.
The late Mr. Jacobs was born at Coleman, AL on April 19, 1880. His youth was spent in Chicago, where he was apprenticed to the trade of plumbing and steam fitting. Joining the Navy as a plumber, he was in the service at the time of the war with Spain and during the conflict was aboard the cruiser "Philadelphia."
It was but a few years following the war that Mr. Jacobs settled in Port Angeles, in about 1903. By diligent study in the Navy he had arisen to a high degree of proficiency in his profession and had earned second engineer's papers.
After working under other men for a time, Mr. Jacobs was urged by friends to establish his own plumbing business. This he did in 1904, opening his shop in the Dr. Lewis building on First St near Oak, which has just recently been torn down to clear the federal building site. In later years, after developing a practice that extended from the Ocean to the east end of the county, he acquired the large frame building at 216 E Fist street which his shop now occupies.
In August, 1911, Mr. Jacobs was married to Miss Bertha Johnston.
During the past 10 years the pioneer plumber was not active in the actual labor of his business, largely due to ill health. He and Mrs. Jacobs, however, carried on the business quite successfully and continuously.
It was as Exhalted Ruler of Naval Lodge of Elks in 1914 and 1915 and in later connections with the lodge that Mr. Jacobs had considerable to do with fraternal circles and civic development. He is credited with having been one for the men chiefly responsible for the opening of Lincoln St. This project was carried though as a civic improvement with its completion, the elk's building on Lincoln St. was constructed.
Mr. Jacobs was a trustee in Naval Lodge many terms after holding the presiding chair and at the time of his passing was chairman of the board of trustees. He was also active in the United Spanish War Veterans, holding the office of commander of Tony Waller Camp in Port Angeles at one time.
Interested in the resources of the peninsula as well as ever confident in the future development of Port Angeles, Mr. Jacobs became familiar with the mountains. He was particularly interested in mineral possibilities and prospecting. Much of his recreation was found in the mountains. As for Port Angeles itself, he ever held hopes of its growing to large city proportions. He gave much effort and spent much money in this confidence, one of his later interests being the federal building project.
In addition to his widow, the late Mr. Jacobs is survived by a brother in Texas, and a sister and other relatives in Chicago.
Wiring from Portland today, Mrs. Jacobs said the remains were to be shipped to Seattle. Funeral arrangements will be announced later. It is understood the funeral will be held in Seattle.
