David Eze Jacob, 74, of Rancho Mirage, California, passed away on Monday December 28, 2015. David has been laid to rest peacefully with his beloved husband, Dr. Donald Cortum, at Hillside Memorial Park and Mortuary in Los Angeles, California.
Born in Rangoon, Burma, David was the youngest of nine children. His childhood travels took him to Calcutta, India and London, England before finally emigrating to the United States. A soldier, a clothier, a loyal companion and a lover of life, David always looked toward the horizon at what the next opportunity would bring. When he wasn’t giving back to others, his passion was traveling the world.
David is survived by his siblings, Seemah Moses, Diane Cohen, Ezra Jacob and Eli Jacob; his nieces and nephews, Jessie Jacob, Francine Jacob, Michelle Levi Kurtz, Tamara Jacob Neff, Jeffrey Jacob, Leah Jacob Frink, Lynne Cohen Friedman and Deborah Jacob Harlow. The friends he leaves behind are innumerable.
David is preceded in death by his parents, Jacob Jacob and Flora Jacob; his siblings, Morris Jacob, Helen Levi, Eliza Jacob, Rubin Jacob; his nephew, Errol Levi and the love of his life, Dr. Donald Cortum.
