Jakob William Roberts, Infant son of Travis and Kathryn “Kate” Roberts of Humboldt returned to be with the Lord July 14, 2014 at Trinity Regional Hospital in Fort Dodge. Private family services will be held in the chapel of the Mason–Lindhart Funeral Home in Humboldt with the Reverend Christy Ehrle officiating.
Jakob had the briefest of worldly lives, coming into and leaving the world on July 14, 2014. He was so special that God wanted him to return right away. He had loving parents and four siblings who were anxious to meet and care for their new family member. Jakob had caring grandparents eager to dote on and spoil him. He had other family members and family friends who awaited his arrival as well. The Lord decided he wanted Jakob to stay with him, and we must trust in His wisdom.
Remaining to honor Jakob’s memory are his parents Travis and Kathryn “Kate” Roberts of Humboldt; sisters Kaylie, Natalie, and Emily; brother Trevor all at home; grandparents Hank and Janet Meyering of Garner, Julia and Bill Custer of Omaha, NE, and Brenda Roberts of California; numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Preceding Jakob in death was his grandfather, John Roberts.
The Mason-Lindhart Funeral Home of Humboldt is assisting the family.
