On Sunday January 29th, just four days after his 80th birthday, the Reverend Randy Jacob passed away from this world to be with our Creator and Heavenly Father. A beloved mafo, father, brother, husband, uncle and Kinsman, Randy cared for everyone privileged to cross his path. He served his country in the U.S. Marines. Randy was an inspiration. He marched with the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. in support of civil rights; he served as a Council Member of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma and has been active in the Choctaw governmental affairs since the late 1960's, when he took an active role in opposing the Indian Termination Act. He is known as a hero to the Choctaw people for his efforts to keep the federal government from terminating the Choctaw Nation in 1970.He led his congregation at McGee Chapel Cumberland Presbyterian Church and served as a leader for the Choctaw Presbytery. Reverend Jacob fought for what was right at great personal and professional expense. He overcame extremely difficult circumstances in his life- racism, prejudice, trauma- to be a kind, generous, and loving father and mafo, and in doing so blessed the lives of his children and grandchildren with joy, peace, and love. Randy was known for his deep concern for his fellow man and great knowledge about tribal history and culture, which he shared with younger generations. He is survived by wife Betty, daughter Faith and husband Dennis, sons Christopher and wife Crystal, and Tvli and wife Valarie, grandchildren A'An, Emley, Nayimmi, Brooke, Nuseka, Jonathan, and Nicky, and many other family members and loved ones. His memory will be a blessing for us all. Funeral services for Reverend Randy Jacob will be held Saturday, February 4, 2017, 2:00 PM, at the First Assembly of God Church, 1501 S.
