Jacob Tyler Barndt, 33
DOVER – Jacob Tyler Barndt passed away on Sunday, December 12, 2021, at Kent General Hospital.

Jacob was born on March 31, 1988 in Dover, Delaware, to John Thomas Barndt and Paula Jeanne Barndt.

He received a bachelor’s degree in engineering management from York College. Jacob was the manager of a local restaurant. He enjoyed skiing, hiking, backpacking with his father in the Rockies, biking, fishing and shooting pool. Jacob loved soccer and football, he put down roots for Chelsea FC and the Steelers. He loved the friendships he made during his time at Dover High School Drumline. Jacob found ways to stay in touch with his closest friends even as life took them across the country. He especially enjoyed playing FIFA with his best friend Zach and enjoyed their conversations while playing. He was the best uncle, hosting water balloon and nerf fights, hours of billiards, and endless Monopoly games. As important as these activities are, her life revolved around her son Jackson. He and Jackson spent their days together going on adventures. Many days started in Port Mahon watching the sun rise and continued with tours to Silver Lake and cycling all over Dover (or as far as Jackson’s tiny legs would carry it).

Jacob was predeceased by his grandparents, Dr. Roy Yorns and Norma Yorns; uncle, Randy Yorns; and cousins, Drew Hittie and Matt Barndt.

Jacob is survived by his parents, John and Paula Barndt; son, Jackson Tyler Barndt and his mother, Jessica Martinski; sister, Rebeccah Benton and her husband William Benton, niece, Brianna and nephews, Elijiah and Vance; and friends, Zach Nixon, Nate Mast, Nathan Coffield and Travis Friedman; grandparents, John and Catherine Barndt; aunts and uncles, Rick and Anita Barndt, Dave and Deb Barndt, Mike and Deb Hittie, Lori and Scott Dunlap; many cousins, their spouses and children; and her beloved dog, Abbie Rose.
