Attica, left this world Tuesday, October

17, 2017 at his home.

Richard Joseph Hobbs was born October 23, 1930, in Detroit. He is the son of the late Edward and the late Alva (Abernathy) Hobbs. Dick grew up in Romeo and is a 1950 graduate of Romeo High School.

He proudly served in the United States Navy. After the service, Dick was employed by National Twist Drill in Rochester for 25 years before they closed. He went on to work for Peachtree Nursing Home performing various jobs.

Dick was a member of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Lapeer. He loved to ride his motorcycles and had a need for speed. The only thing he enjoyed more than cruising around on his “crotch rocket” was making people laugh. He was blessed with a God-given sense of humor. He will be missed.

He is survived by three sisters, Terese Borck of Dryden, Charlene (Lowell) Peterson of York, NB, and Mary Rose (Wayne) Shipferling of York, NB; many nieces and nephews; and extra special friends, Shirley Edwards and Donald Kohns.

Dick was preceded in death by his parents, Edward and Alva Hobbs; one brother, John Hobbs; sister, Judith Maher; and his brother-in-law, Joseph Borck.

Interment of ashes will take place 11 a.m., Tuesday, April 17, 2018 at Ferguson Cemetery, located at Kidder and Tubsprings Road, Almont. Rev. Father John “Doc” Ortman will officiate. Arrangements were made by Muir Brothers Funeral Home, 225 N. Main Street, Imlay City, MI. Please be sure to sign our on-line register muirbrothersfh.com
