I met Hobe over 30 years ago and enjoyed going.to the Checkerboard. Hobe was a very social person and had many friends come to the Checkerboard. I had the opportunity also to tip a few with him. I also played Euchre and Tonk Rum with Hobe and had a great time. I also had him do some drywall work in my home and he did an excellent job. I hadn't seen Hobe for several years, but have always had pleasant thoughts and memories about him. Nancy and the rest of the family have my deepest sympathy.

I was fortunate to have known Hobe through real estate transactions and as a good friend. May his family find peace and comfort during this difficult time.

Anyone who knew Hope would know he chose his words and his friends carefully. Hobe was a proud man, not only of his family but of the people he surrounded himself with. We became friends late in our lives Hobe, but no better friend could I have had! God Bless you and your wonderful family with the sadness of your loss to all of us.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

My dearest older brother whom I've so looked up to throughout my life - you are loved and sorely missed; but I look forward to being reunited with you in Christ when my time on earth is done as well.
