• Mr. Biar


THORNDALE—Jacob Darren Biar was born on July 22, 1997, and went to his heavenly home on Saturday, July 21, 2018.

Jacob was preceded in death by his grandfather, John Zieschang.

He is survived by his parents, Darren and Shannon Biar; his triplet siblings, Ethan and Michaela; sister McKenna; grandparents, Evelyn Zieschang and Billy and Lou Biar; loving aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Jacob was a multi-talented, incredible individual who loved music and working with his hands.

He was wise beyond his years, strong, but loving, and always helped anyone who needed it. He had a strong sense of family, knew who he was and what he liked. If someone asked him to do something, he not only did it with a smile on his face, he exceeded their expectations when the project was complete.

Jacob was a born leader. He was president of his Thorndale High School class his freshman through senior years, president of the National Honor Society, vice-president of the Thorndale FFA chapter, and president of the Band Council all during his senior year. He had a 4.0 GPA at Tarleton University, where he just completed his junior year.

He loved playing music for people and shared his talents during Christmas and Easter services at St. Paul and Trinity Lutheran churches.

You could always count on Jacob to be a hard worker at any charitable event and he could be found making barbecue for St. Paul’s dinner and auction, helping in the Band Hut years after he graduated, and anywhere the community needed him to help.

Everyone who knew him, loved him. We will miss his quick wit, his clever comebacks, his loving smile and helping hands.

A celebration of life service will be held at 10 a.m. Thursday, July 26, at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Thorndale. Burial will follow at St. Paul Lutheran Church Cemetery.
