August 15, 1925 - May 22, 2014

Hoby was born in Brownsville, PA and was one of six children.  He served in the Army during WWII. After the war, Hoby moved to Rochester, NY with his wife, Ida, where he worked for General Motors. In 1974 they moved to Payson, AZ.  They enjoyed an active retirement there for 26 years. They relocated to Bend, OR twelve years ago to be closer to family.

Hoby died at home with his loving wife by his side.  Always thinking, always thoughtful, always kind… Hoby didn’t hesitate to express pride in his family and express love for his country.

Hoby is survived by his wife of 68 years (Ida), his son (Larry), his daughter (Darla), four grandchildren (Jacky, Caprice, Andrew, Tamara), 13 great-grandchildren, and one sister (Jenelle).
