Allan Hobbs

Is with profound regret that the family of Allan Walter Hobbs announce his sudden passing on Thursday 05 April 2012 just days after celebrating his 79th birthday with a large circle of family and friends stopping into his home in Gander, Newfoundland to wish him well! Well known for his ever-calm and friendly disposition, when he wasn’t telling a good story or reciting a ballad, he was singing under his breath … always! And in spite of a litany of health issues of late, the ever positive, good natured, humorous Allan always showed up … smiling. Predeceased by his parents Hannah (Trask) and Caleb Hobbs of Elliston, Newfoundland, infant son Brian, brother Raymond, sister Jean, brother-in-law Victor (Melina) and daughter-in-law Margaret. Devoted and loving husband to his wife and best friend of 56 years Beulah (Johnson); loving Dad of Cheryl, Marilyn, Rod (Eileen) and Corey (Janique); proud pop of Scott, Eva, Terri-Lynn, and Brittany. Also leaving with fond and loving memories; sister Shirley Robar (Wayne) and brothers Karl (Phyllis), Arthur (Ruby), Wince (Elsie); brothers-in-law Ivany Dalton, Larry Johnson (Joy Maddigan), sisters-in-law Grace Baker (Alvin), Myrtle Dalton (Lloyd), a long list of nieces, nephews, cousins, family, angelic neighbors and countless friends including special friends Jim Wiseman, Kitt Dwyer and Bill Blackmore. Special thanks to Raquel Rogers for her heartfelt care and devotion. Remains rested at Stacey’s Funeral Home with services from Fraser Road United Church in Gander, Newfoundland at 2:00pm Monday 10 April 2012. Arrangements entrusted through Stacey's Funeral Home, Gander. To sign the memorial on-line guest book please visit www.staceysfuneralhome.ca
