David Henry Hobbs died suddenly at a Bangor area hospital, February 16, 2007. David was born December 1, 1938, in Bangor, to Herbert T. and Hildreth (Bellatty) Hobbs. He spent his early childhood in Orrington with his paternal grandmother until going to the Pineland Center in 1950.
In 1968 Dave moved to Eastport, finally settling back in the Bangor area in 1977. He lived with OHI and then, in 1984, he became a resident of Commonsense Housing, Inc. Dave had also been with the Amicus Corporation since 1977, first at Penobscot Valley Industries and then employed at Phoenix Industries until the time of his death. David loved his peace and quiet, his coffee and his daily trips to Dunkin Donuts. Living in the country suited David well. He enjoyed time outdoors, alone, left to his own thoughts. He was also proud to earn his own spending money at Phoenix Industries.
Dave is survived by his long time home providers Elliott Presby and Arthur Cole, both of Corinth, Maggie Henry and her family of Eddington, the entire Commonsense Housing family and three special people in his life, Shay Ostrow, Karen Kelly and Dr. Will Richards. He was predeceased by his parents and by his best friend, Bill Henry.
There will be a time of visitation with viewing 10 A.M. Friday at the Hampden-Gilpatrick Funeral Home, 45 Western Avenue, Hampden followed immediately by a Service of Remembrance and Thanksgiving at 11 A.M. with Dr. Deborah H. Carney, officiating. There will be a continued time to celebrated David's life after the service at 15 Riverside Drive, Eddington.
Interment in the springtime will be in Marston Cemetery, Orrington.
