Obituary for Roy A. Jacobowski

Roy A. Jacobowski, age 71, U.S. Air Force Veteran passed away on Saturday, January 22.
Devoted son of the late Anton and Eugenia Jacobowski.
Cherished brother of Dave (Geri), Bill (Roberta), Ken (Susan), and Paul (Nancy) Jacobowski.
Devoted uncle of Jason, Carrie, Katie, Rachel, Natalie, Amanda, and Mark. Great-uncle of Mila, Romy, Lars, Olivia, Cordelia and Arlene.

Following Roy's honorable discharge from the Air Force, he trained in the culinary arts and was a chef at multiple locations throughout the Chicago metropolitan area. Roy’s culinary interests led him to two other activities. He became an avid gardener nurturing seedlings to bountiful harvests of fresh vegetables. His interest in cast-iron cookware led him to frequenting thrift shops and yard/garage sales where Roy would discover unique vintage items that resulted in him becoming a collector of wide variety of artifacts that piqued his many interests. Roy enjoyed nature and loved canoeing in the DuPage County Forest Preserves to observe the local plant and animal life. He had a true passion of caring for dogs and volunteering at the animal shelter where he was considered “The Dog Whisperer” who could calm troubled dogs that would then be eligible for adoption.
