It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of David Henry Hobbs on Dec. 31, 2020. He was 67.

David was born in Exeter, N.H., on Nov. 5, 1953, to the late Frank and Mabel (Letourneau) Hobbs.

David's childhood began on a family dairy farm in Chester, N.H. The family moved to Manchester, N.H., just before settling in Derry, N.H., where he played football and graduated from Pinkerton Academy. He attended Plymouth State College for a few years and went on to work in the construction trade, becoming a self-employed carpenter. His many interests included motorcycle riding, snowmobiling, playing softball, and he had a passion for cars, especially his 1967 Buick Riviera.

David was the beloved father of Melissa (Todd Swartz of Springboro, Ohio, and three grandchildren, Alec , Reagan, and Kendall); brothers, Frank (Janice Hobbs) of Goffstown, N.H., Steven Hobbs of Manchester, N.H., Michael Hobbs of Hooksett, N.H., Brian (Roseanne Hobbs) of Goffstown, N.H.; sisters, Brenda (Peter Matthews) of Homosassa, Fla., Linda (Richard Trebino of Atlanta, Ga.), and Cathryn ( David Gaffney) of Hallandale, Fla.; many nieces, nephews, grandnieces, grandnephews, and cousins. David is preceded in death by his parents, Frank and Mabel (Letourneau) Hobbs, and his son, William Hobbs, who sadly passed away in 2008 at the age of 20.

Burial will take place in Lee Hill Cemetery, 7 Mast Rd., Lee, NH 03861 on July 31, 2021, at noon. Immediately following, family and friends will be gathering at the Telly Restaurant, 235 Calef Hwy, Epping, NH 03042

I will always remember the fun times we had on the jobsite, with family, my 21st birthday party or the many happy times growing up. Rest in peace Uncle Dave.
