Words cannot express the sadness that family and friends feel due to the sudden earthly passing of their boy, Jacob Eric Arnott, on April 8, 2021.
Jacob was the most beautiful human being, child, brother and friend. His heart was filled with passion for life and love. Those eyes.... They said a thousand words. They told people he was kind, gentle and sweet, even if he was wearing all black, had tattoos and was covered in hair. His charismatic energy touched everyone he met.
Jacob had a creative mind and enjoyed writing poetry which he put to music. He loved hearing and telling stories. He had a soft spot for cats and spoiled his own so much; they were his little babies. His fashion sense was impeccable, and he wore it well. He learned that from his mama, grandmothers and aunties.
Jacob loved his job at Forge, where he was fulfilling his sense of purpose in taking care of people and being social.
His brothers, Gavin, Drake and Bryce, and his sisters, Adrianna, Dalayna, Teia and Ashley Elaine, were his best friends, as were all of his cousins. His childhood friends remained his friends throughout his life. He adored his Papas and Grandmas (Karen, Bob, Rich, Yvonne, Velma, Doug and Liz) and his Aunties and Uncles. As his parents, I know we meant the world to him. Jacob loved his family beyond words.
His worldly presence will be horribly missed; however, his spirit is all around us, and he will remain in our hearts forever.
Thank you for all of the support, kindness and love that our families have received from so many. Thank you for loving our son.
Sincerely - Jenner (Mom) and DeAndrae Sampton (Step-Dad) - Sean (Dad) and Anna Arnott (Step-Mom)
