Dear Fay,Pattie, and Andy
Sure was a shocked to learn of Hobert''''s passing. He was a friend, and much more. During the time we worked together as Deputy Sheriff''''s and later when I was Sheriff. Hobert gave me a great in-sight on several things about the mountain and the people that lived there. I could always count on Hobert for back-up when needed during an investigation or arrest. I could ALWAYS count on Hobert, and that meant alot. He will be missed,but Hobert is in a better place, no more pain or suffering, May God grant you comfort, and may Hobert be in everyone''''s memory. Hobert was a very fine man, someone that I was proud to call a friend. May God Bless you .

It was with deep regret that I heard of the passing of Hobert. He was a wonderful person who I enjoyed working with when was Grant County's Administrative Assistant and Administrator of Emergency Management. Hobert was a wonderful individual and friend. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
