Bruce M. Jacobs

Bruce Morris Jacobs, 72, of Fredericksburg passed away after a long illness on Thursday, May 8, 2014, at his home surrounded by his loving family.

A veteran of the U.S. Navy, Bruce was originally from Northern Virginia, where he worked for many years in law enforcement. Later in his life, he lived in Bangor, Maine, where he was a volunteer with the Bangor Veterans Hospital and was a private investigator.

Bruce is survived by two daughters, Pamela J. Toler and husband Amos of Spotsylvania County and Brenda Jacobs Payne and husband Robert of Fredericksburg; two sons, Brian Jacobs and wife Jennifer of Maryland and Michael Jacobs and wife Patricia of Spotsylvania; three brothers, Roger Jacobs of New Orleans, Leslie Jacobs and wife Maryanne of Sparks, Nevada, and Neil Jacobs and wife Susan of Manassas; four sisters, Dottie Jacobs of North Carolina, Beth Jacobs of Bedford, Pa., and Judith Floyd and Colette Ward, both of Oxford, N.C.; six grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Bruce was preceded in death by his parents, Moses and Louise Jacobs, and a sister, Diane Lacross.

Services will be private.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that expressions of sympathy take the form of donations in Bruce's name to a local law enforcement agency or fire department; or Hospice of Virginia, 1955 Jefferson Davis Highway, Suite 110, Fredericksburg, VA 22401.
