TOBIN, JERALD DENNIS (9/2/45-5/17/14) Jerry was born in Detroit, Michigan to the late Elizabeth and John Tobin. He served his country proudly as a Capitan in the Marine Corps form 1965 to 1969. He married Mary Ann Principe in September 1969. He was employed with Price Waterhouse as a CPA until the family moved to Annapolis in 1979. At that time, he opened his own CPA practice. Being self-employed gave Jerry the flexibility to pursue his love of soccer. His coaching spanned 30 years. Jerry began because his son Rob's team needed a coach. Later, daughter Tracy's Severna Park travel team needed a coach. He then started coaching at St. Mary's when Elizabeth's team needed a coach - and there he stayed for 20 years. He received great joy watching his 3 children grow - on and off the field. His joy multiplied with the addition of each cherished grandchild. He has been surrounded by Abby, Tobin, Chloe, Jake, Reed, Moira, Nina, Ben and Maisy. How blessed he felt. He is survived by Mary Ann Tobin, his wife of 45 years. Two daughters, Elizabeth and Tracy, a son Rob and daughter-in-law Barbara, the grandchildren, brothers, brother in laws, sister in laws, aunts, nieces and nephews. To his family and many friends, you gave him such joy and his heart is with you. A service for Jerry will be held Friday, June 6th at St. John Neumann Catholic Church (620 N. Bestgate Road, Annapolis, MD) at 6 p.m. Immediately following the service, a "Celebration of Life" will be held at St. Mary's High School, Marion Hall. There will be no interment at this time as Jerry donated his body to the Maryland Anatomy Board. In lieu of flowers, the family request donations to be made in this name to either The Wounded Warriors Project (4899 Belfort Road, Suite 300, Jacksonville, FL 32256) or The Oncology Nurse Navigators Programs C/O Bonnie Bresnahan, DeCesaris Cancer Institute at AAMC, 2001 Medical Parkway, Annapolis, MD 21401
