Don attended The Cushman School, Horace Mann Jr. High, and Miami Edison High School. He spent his senior year at Bullis Academy outside of Washington, DC. He was then appointed to the Naval Academy, but chose not to attend and instead went to Yale University where he graduated with an Economics degree in 1962. Don then spent 2 years in the Navy as a lieutenant working on the USS Observation Island during the time of the Cuban Missile Crisis. Following the Navy, he attended the University of Florida Law School where he graduated as Salutatorian. After a year of practicing law, he decided to further his education and attended NYU where he earned his Master's in Tax Law and was Valedictorian of his class. In 1969, Don began practicing law for the firm of Walton-Lantaff until he left to open a private practice in Miami Shores with Barry Swope. During this period he was a stalwart of the Miami Shores community and a Deacon of the Miami Shores Presbyterian Church. Don retired in 2000 and enjoyed spending his free time with his long time Miami Shores childhood friends, out and about in the community, and of course, on the golf course. He is survived by his two children Donald W. Stobs III and Beth Ann Stobs, their mother Ann Wright Stobs, his sisters Shirley Stobs Davis & Carol Sue Stobs, and innumerable cousins, nephews and nieces.
