He was past president of Mobley Construction Co. Inc. and counted among his accomplishments in the construction business was the successful completion of thirty-three church contracts. The church project he was most proud of being a part of, was the site development and construction of the first four buildings of First Baptist Church, Augusta, at their new campus on Walton Way Extension.

As an avid pilot, he flew his family on trips to Disneyland, Disneyworld, Las Vegas, Grand Canyon, Carlsbad Caverns and the Bahama Islands. Dating back to 1939, he attended 73 consecutive Georgia/Georgia Tech football games. Known for his quick wit, he always had a joke to tell or made up one-liners and play-on words that were always a hit at gatherings. He was a loving husband to his wife of 63 years, a highly respected businessman, a wonderful father to his children and a good friend to all who were acquainted.
