David Isaac Jobe, 74, a life-long resident of Connersville, went home to be with the Lord Thursday morning, April 14, 2022 surrounded by his loving family.
He was born January 9, 1948, one of three children of Elmo and Elizabeth “Betty” Thompson Jobe and was a 1966 graduate of Alquina High School.
In 1971, David received his Bachelor of Science in Accounting from Ball State University.
On August 9, 1969, he was married in Crown Point, Indiana to Sandra Lynn Wagonblast and they made Connersville their home at that time.
David was employed at Marhoeffer Meat Packaging Plant in Muncie, Indiana while in college. Then he became employed at Metal Plating until 1986.
Along with his brother, Jeremy Jobe, they formed Jobe Brothers Contractors and worked until his health declined. For most of David’s adult life, they also farmed the Jobe family farm.
In 2011, David built the Bible Believer’s Baptist Church in Liberty, and he became a faithful member, also preaching on occasions.
He had been a member of the Jennings Township Advisory Board from 1984 until 2021.
In his leisure, David loved farming, playing golf, and watching football. Most of all, however, he enjoyed family activities and spending time with his family.
