Hans Kaare Jacobsen, 57, of Ocala passed away on November 29, 2016. Kaare was born to the loving parents of June and Hans J. Jacobsen on February 12, 1959. Kaare strolled into every room with lively blue eyes, a joke at the ready, and a smile that made even the unhappiest curmudgeon feel cheerful. You would think quoting Monty Python and Looney Toons were his true passions in life as often as he did it, but then you’d miss the moments he jammed to Steely Dan on his guitar or played Fleetwood Mac on the piano, all the while comically attempting to sing. Thankfully, though, he isn’t remembered for his singing. In fact, people don’t remember him for his lack of common sense, because his technical genius overshadowed it. And they don’t remember him for his perpetual tardiness, because his promptness to other’s needs always eclipsed it. No; instead, Kaare is remembered for the warmth and comfort others felt in his presence. He could talk for hours and listen even longer. The love his family and friends feel for him can never be measured, and will not be forgotten. All services will be private, but the family asks that in his honor you continue the legacy of teaching he naturally pursued, as “teaching is the fine art of imparting knowledge without possessing it.” And always remember, “Life’s a laugh and death’s a joke, it’s true…Always look on the bright side of life”.
