On October 24, 1959, Brent was born in that same hospital to the late Joseph Edward Jacobs and the late Elizabeth “Betty” (Zeiner) Dennis. He attended Newcomerstown High School and served in the U.S. Army, but he was very private about his service.
Brent worked for Dundee Automotive Inc. for the last thirty years. He enjoyed his job and helping all the customers who came in. In his spare time, he liked to tinker with cars, spend time with his granddaughters, and watch TV and mystery shows.
Surviving is Joe’s son and daughter-in-law, Joseph B. Jr., and Hannah Jacobs of Port Washington, his two granddaughters, Kaysen and Myla, his two sisters and brothers-in-law, Denise and Chad Woodruff and Lori and Joe Seiler, his aunt Valorie Zeiner, and longtime acquaintance Serena Jacobs.
Along with his parents, Joe is preceded by his stepfather Carroll “Pete” Dennis.
Keeping with Joe’s wishes, no services will be held.
