Corwin Edward ("Hobe") Hobensack, a native son of Chillicothe Ohio, will be remembered by the things he loved and was most committed to in this life. Above all else his love and protection of his family was absolute and always expressed with gentle humor and infectious joy. Corwin loved the U.S. Air Force and offered his 27 year military career filled with challenge and hardship as a commitment to his country and its many freedoms and opportunities. His family, friends, classmates, military and work colleagues will always remember the sound of his belly laugh, the twinkle in his eye, and, most of all, his bigger than life heart and generosity. To our dear "Hobe", loving husband, devoted patriot, Dad, Granddad, Great Granddad, and loyal friend to so many, we wish you an Eternity of Fair Winds and Following Seas.
