Jake was best known for his sharpening service of 47 years in the basement of his home in Central City. One of the parts that he loved most about sharpening was meeting and getting to know a variety of people.

We are sorry for your loss. We missed Jake at church. He always sat behind us and visited on Sunday mornings.
He was such a nice man. Dale knew him from his sharpening shop as well, no one filled his shoes.
With our sincere sympathy to the family at the loss of such a kind and gentle man.
René and Dale Larson

Dear Rieby, Glenn and families. Larry and I are so very sorry for your loss of your Dad. What a wonderful man and we will always have fond memories. When in high school he always made sure there was plenty of gas in your little Volkswagen for the many trips to Spearfish and around town. He always had a great smile too! There are lots of Angels in Heaven and Jake is now there watching over you all. Deepest of Sympathy. Safe travels and Love Always. Mary Bonrud
