Jacob Dean Baumann

Jacob Dean Baumann, 20, entered into eternal life on Friday August 19, 2016 at his residence in Del Ray Beach, Florida.  Jacob moved to Florida to start a new life.  A new Sober Life.  Jacob was an avid lover of sports.  Jacob was able to brighten any room with his contagious smile.  Our feelings are summarized from this quote from one of Jacob’s high school football coaches: “I watched you try. I witnessed your failures, but you never gave up.  You kept fighting back, trying to get better. You did the best you could… I just wish I could tell you great job one more time.” He was preceded in death by his cousin Dean Sapsford, grandfather John Edward “Jack” Stieringer, and Uncle Roy “LeMaur” Roberts.  Jacob will be dearly missed by his parents Mark and Terri Baumann; his sisters Erin and Rebecca; Grandparents: Don and Judy Baumann, and Grandmother Carol Stieringer; numerous loving aunts and uncles (17); cousins (27), and countless friends in Northern Kentucky and Del Ray Beach, Florida.  A Celebration of Life will be held on Friday, August 26, 2016 from 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM at Alexandria Funeral Home 325 Washington Street, Alexandria Ky.
