T. E. Jacobs, city worker, caterer, dies
T. Edward "Eddie" Jacobs, a retired city employee who had once run seafood and catering businesses, died of cancer Sept. 8 at his Timonium home. He was 83.
The Baltimore native's career began in the 1940s when he and his brother, Harry, took over the family seafood business begun by their grandmother in the late 1800s. When the Paca Street business known as William Jacobs & Sons Seafood closed after World War II, Mr. Jacobs turned his attention to a separate catering business he and his wife ran on Old York Road. The couple sold that business in 1956 after 16 years of operation.
That same year, he joined the city's Department of Finance, working as a cashier-clerk before retiring in 1978. A 1926 graduate of Loyola High School, he later took a part-time job as a bookkeeper for Loyola-Notre Dame Library before retiring for good three years ago.
Mr. Jacobs was a member of the Notre Dame Council of the Knights of Columbus for more than 40 years and a past grand knight.
A longtime member of the Old Timers Baseball Association, Mr. Jacobs enjoyed playing football, baseball and tennis as a young man and was known as a speedy center fielder when he played semi-professional ball in the 1930s.
Survivors include his wife of 54 years, the former Martha Bounds; three daughters, Carol Bollinger of Timonium, Joan Watson of Abingdon and Mary Sadlowski of Freeland; two sons, Tom Jacobs of Rockville and Jerry Jacobs of Glen Arm; a sister, Lillian Rosenberger of Timonium; and 13 grandchildren.
The family suggests memorial contributions to the Union Memorial Hospice Program, 201 E. University Parkway, Baltimore Services were held Sept. 12 at St. Joseph's Roman Catholic Church in Texas, Md.
