Haakan 'Bob' Jacobsen

Haakan 'Bob' Jacobsen
"Haakon 'Bob' Jacobsen, 1892-1966, born in Stavanger, Norway" The city name appears to be misspelled as -gar on the stone.

Here is his WWII draft card:
Draft card

He was a logger, as I suspected. "Weyerhaeuser Camp 4" was only about 5 miles west of this cemetery on Greensprings Hwy, Keno, Oregon. Another view of this grave: www.ipernity.com/doc/1227338/37917588/in/album/766856

Interesting, Diane and today, of course, 48 would be considered a ludicrously young age to die but might have been considered par for the course back then and especially in such a dangerous occupation.

He didn't die at 48, he registered for the draft at 48 - also a ludicrous age for that! But, it was wartime. Yes, men were killed by that job at any age, though.
