Mishawaka – Milo Anton Jacobsen 89 was born to this life on August 16, 1930 in Sioux County, Iowa on a farm to Anna Elizabeth (Serck) and Willie Jacobsen.
He graduated from Alvord High School in Alvord, Iowa in 1949. He faithfully served in the United States Army from January 3, 1951 to December 22, 1952 and was stationed in Korea in the signal corps as a teletype operator for 19 months. Milo received his barber license in 1955.
On April 26, 1951 he married his loving wife Dorothy Mae (Price) at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in South Bend. Surviving are his wife along with two children Debra (Michael) Mittleman and Gilbert (Judy) Jacobsen. Also, surviving are five grandchildren, Brent (Heather) Plummer, Chad Plummer, Breanna Konopinski, Christopher (Joanna) Jacobsen and Paige Jacobsen; one step grandchild, Nathan Mittleman; five great grandchildren, Mason, Ryan, Brayden and Zachary Plummer, Tyler Jacobsen and Julian DeCook and one sister Joan King.
Preceding him in death were his parents, a sister Mildred DeWald, three brothers, Glenn, Lyle, and Erwin and one grandchild Ryan Scott Plummer.
Milo was a self-employed barber in Mishawaka for 52 years owning Milo’s Barber Shop. It later was renamed Jacobsen’s Barber and Style Shop when his son Gil and grandson Brent joined the business. He retired in 2006 and wanted to thank the many customers that he served.
He was a life member of the VFW Post 360 and a member of Juday Creek Golf Course since 1991.
Milo was known for his hand made furniture and stained glass.
He was an avid fan of golf, fishing, Cubs, NASCAR, Notre Dame football and Purdue Women’s Basketball coached by his niece Sharon Versyp. He enjoyed camping with his family traveling across the United States and spending many years at his home on Shavehead Lake.
He was very fond of his monthly card club of 60 years. But the most important to him was his family which he loved dearly.
