WESTMINSTER, Vt. – Jacob R. McAllister, 26, of Morse Brook Road passed away Sunday, May 27, 2018. Jacob was born in Brattleboro, Vt. Oct. 4, 1991, the son of Russell and Teri (Bryant) McAllister. He attended schools in Westminster and worked at Hubbard Farms. Jacob enjoyed riding four wheelers, snowmobiling, listening to music, sugaring with his father and little sister, and he loved his dog Max. The best years of his life were spent playing baseball in the Westminster Sand Lot with his best friend and brother Zack. He also loved sailing with the family at Lake Sunapee. Jacob had an infectious laugh and his smile that would light up the room. He was loved and will be missed by many. RIP, my sweet boy!
Brother. You were my little brother, Jacob Ryan. I don’t believe you are gone. My mind is in total disbelief. I don’t know what to do. I should have told you “I love you” more often. Now, I will never have that chance. So instead, I’ll tell the ones closest that I love them more often. I’ll call them more; I’ll try to be a better person like I know you would want me to be. I’ll take your death as a warning that could have easily been me. So now I’ll try harder to do the next best thing. I love you little brother. When I’m struggling and having a bad day, I’ll think of you. You will always be a part of me, no matter what I do. I love you Jacob Ryan. Love, Sister.
Jacob is survived by his parents; his brother Zack; his sisters Holly, Danielle, Jacinta, and Lily; his girlfriend Chelsea O’Vaitte; his nieces and nephews Spencer, Tucker, Sophia, Mya, Kadence, Remy, Cameren, and Landen. He is predeceased by his grandparents William and Bernadette Bryant and Burt McAllister.
There will be calling hours 7 – 9 p.m. Friday, June 1 at Fenton & Hennessey Funeral Home. A celebration of Jacob’s life will be celebrated from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday, June 2 at the Westminster pool.
