Obituary

Danny Lee Hobbs, Sr, age 72, went to be with the Lord on December 31, 2018, while at his home in Payne Springs, Texas.

Danny was born November 23, 1946 to Ernest and Winnie Hobbs. He grew up in Palmer, Texas. Danny served in the US Navy during the Vietnam War aboard the USS Kepler. He married Joy Sarratt in 1969. Danny worked for several years in the air conditioning and freight industry. He then started his own business, Hobbs Pest Management, in 1985. He was an active member of the First Baptist Church of Gun Barrel City and faithfully brought donuts to church on Sunday mornings.

Danny was known for his joking and cutting up. He loved spending time outdoors. He was an avid fisherman and got a big kick out of watching the deer, hogs, and other wildlife on his property. Danny also enjoyed cooking and high among his many specialties were his fried fish and pinto beans. His recipes were never exactly the same, since he had such a good time changing up his ingredients from day to day, depending on whatever he happened to have on hand.

Danny is survived by Joy Hobbs; his son-in-law and daughter, Julian and Brenda Ochoa of Malakoff; his son and daughter-in-law, Lee and Jennifer Hobbs of Eustace; his grandchildren, Stephanie Bys, Tiffany Wilson, Laney Hobbs, and Keaton Hobbs; as well as several great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents and his son, Donny Thomas.

Visitation will be Friday, January 4 at Hannigan Smith Funeral Home in Athens from 6:00 until 8:00 PM. His funeral service will be Saturday, January 5 at First Baptist Church of Gun Barrel City at 10:00 AM, with Bro. Byron Jones officiating.

Our Paw Paw is dearly loved and will be greatly missed. We take much comfort knowing that he is smiling, laughing, and cutting up in heaven with Jesus.

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus' sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh. So then death worketh in us, but life in you. We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak; Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you. For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God. For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal. II Corinthians 4:718
