    I am sorry for your loss. I knew Larry from elementary/high school in Elba. He was always a fun-loving person, and we all had great times back then. My family will keep you in our prayers.

    Jacobs family, I am very sorry for your loss. Larry Jacobs Chuppy for anyone that knew him was a staple of Macungie for one main reason…..He loved what he did and helped people with no questions asked. Didn’t want anything in return half the time. My dad started taking his vehicles there about 25 years ago and they became friends. How could you not! He and Ruth Ann simply made you feel at home and like you were there first customer ever. “Just bring it in now…We’ll take a look at it ” was a phrase that made you feel on the phone and in person that he really cared….why…because he did. I swear he salvaged some of my cars after I beat them up as a young stupid teenager and did not have the respect for it like I do now. He respected what he did but always turned a deaf ear to the stupiditiy I always seemed to drive, tow or push my cars into his garage. Macungie just lost a very good person. Much love and respect, Chuppy! – Brock Snyder

    As we approach Larry’s birthday on September 26, he is definitely in my mind. I miss my cousin terribly.

    Chupbut I continued to call him Larry was one of the most honest men I have ever met. This man should have been a politician, hence, the world around him would have been a better place.
    Larry was the kind of guy that when he had to tell me that he HAD to do major surgery on my vehicle, he was almost ensaddened that he had to cost me money. He almost was apologetic for MY car breaking down. As I said, after becoming a customer, he then became my friend because I admired his honesty, his frankness and his sense of humor. He was NEVER nasty that I personally observed.
    I know he looked forward to retiring so he could hunt and fish alot more. I wanted to go bass fishing with him after he retired but now I have to take him in spirit.
    I also was anxious to see Chup sitting at the “WHEELS OF TIME” car show with his newly built street rod. He told me in August, “next year for sure.” I hope somebody shows it in his behalf.
    Good bye my friend. You are truly in Heaven.

    Respectfully,
    Denny Snyder
