1960 - 2013

Jacob Blaauw

Jacob A. Blaauw, born Jan. 2, 1960, died July 22, 2013. The Rim Country lost an incredible one-of-a-kind, caring man when he lost his fight with cancer.
Most knew him as “Hillbilly,” Jake “the Snake,” or just friend.
A longtime resident of Pine, he is survived by two wonderful sons, Jason and Jesse; his big sister, Patsey Fiero; and his fiancée, Andi Shirley.
As was his way, he wanted a party, A Blow Out, so put on a smile, clown nose and hillbilly teeth and come celebrate his life at 2 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 17 at his home in Pine. For directions call (928) 472-7951.
Donations in Mr. Blaauw’s name may be made to the Humane Society of Central Arizona, P.O. Box 242, Payson, AZ 85547.
