Michael "Mike" Paul Jakubo

JAKUBO, Michael "Mike" Paul - In Loving Memory of Michael “Mike” Paul Jakubo 71 years It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of our loving father and husband at his home on April 4, 2019. Mike leaves behind his wife of 46 years, Jeanne (Soucek), the love of his life. He was so proud of his children Jana (Mark Fritz) and Michael (Jody), and was a doting Gedo to his Grandsons Erik and Malik and his princess Myla. Predeceased by his parents Michael and Mary Jakubo, he was also a dear brother to Sister Mary Jakubo CSJ, Helen Huneault (Gilles) both predeceased, Anne Taus (Romano), Joseph (Joan) and Edward (Cathy). Mike will be sadly missed by many nieces and nephews and their families and is fondly remembered by all of his friends and anyone who had the pleasure of knowing him. Mike was an all-around athlete excelling in hockey, baseball and football; his dedication and commitment to the game of hockey offered him a professional career playing in both the U.S. and Europe. He was known as the ‘fastest skater’ and Mike’s speed and skill brought fans to their feet chanting “Go, Go, Jakubo!” His love and passion for the game was passed on to the many players he mentored during his time coaching. After 25+ years working for the City of Greater Sudbury, Mike’s count-down to retirement came to an end and he walked out of City Hall and onto the golf course. Mike golfed almost every day and when he wasn’t golfing he was using his gift of gab as a Starter at Timberwolf, greeting every golfer that passed through. Above all, Mike was a devout Catholic and family man. He loved deeply and was never shy in telling his loved ones how much they meant to him. There is nothing that Mike took more pride in than being an adoring Gedo to his Grandchildren. He was never too tired for a game of catch, mini-sticks, pool, or a piggy back ride. He was the loudest fan in the stands, and there will never be a doubt that he will always be by our side. Funeral Visitation in the LOUGHEED FUNERAL HOME, 252 Regent Street at Hazel Street, Sudbury (Friends may call 2-4; 7-9pm Thursday) Funeral Mass in Holy Redeemer Church 1887 Bancroft Drive, Sudbury Friday, April 12, 2019 at 11am.

One of the best things about the game of golf, was being greeted by Mike at Timberwolf. Always smiling, he was happy to see everybody....what a terrific way to start a round. I looked forward to seeing him at the hockey games as our grandsons played each other....always a good time with lots of smiles. Mike will be missed. He was "one of the good ones. Rest in peace buddy. Sincere condolences to Mike's family. Timberwolf won't be the same without him.

Mike, we are so sorry to hear of your Dad's sudden death. I enjoyed working with him many years ago at the City, and often saw him around town since. He will be missed.

Rest In Paradise Michael.
