Our loving father, grandfather, great grandfather and friend went to the Lord and was reunited with his loving wife on Thursday, October 21, 2010 at the age of 90. Jacob Domson was born December 10, 1919 in Saginaw, MI to the late Andrew and Mary (Reisig) Domson. He married Helen Mary Demko on September 28, 1943 in Saginaw. She preceded him in death on April 6, 2010. They shared 67 years together. Jake served his country with the U.S. Navy during World War II, and then was a member of American Legion Post #439. He worked for Saginaw Steering Gear for over 40 years as a toolmaker, and continued his passion for tool and dye making in his own home workshop for 20 years.
