Obituary of Douglas Hobbs

Douglas M. Hobbs, 56, of Glastonbury CT died peacefully at home, on July 7, 2011 with his family at his bedside. He is survived by his wife, Pamela (Ellis), and their two children, Sarah and Dan. Doug was the son of Irene (Morgan) Hobbs of No. Attleboro and the late Roland C. Hobbs. Doug grew up in North Attleboro, MA, and after attending North Adams State College with special life-long friends, earned a degree in Business from Nichols College in Dudley MA in 1977. Doug furthered his education with a Masters of Business Administration from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 1995. Doug worked for United Technologies Corporation for 34 years, most of which was spent at Otis Elevator Company. For the past several years, Doug worked at the Otis Service Center in Bloomfield, CT. Doug was a active member of First Church of Christ in Glastonbury where he taught Church School, and served as deacon and church president. Doug also worked on other committees including Covenant To Care, where he, with the help of his son, delivered furniture, food and assistance to those in need. He was also active in Glastonbury youth sports, as coach, supporter and an enthusiastic fan at his children's events. Doug also loved kayacking, the game of golf which he played well and often with friends, and vacationing in Maine. Doug was described by his colleagues at Otis as respected, positive and energetic. Friends called him inspirational and caring. Doug's faith influenced all who knew him - he was a steadfast servant of God, trusting in Him, and helping others to find peace and promise in his passing. A memorial service celebrating Doug's life will be Monday July 11, at 10:30am in the First Church of Christ, Congregational, 2183 Main St., Glastonbury. Friends may call at the Mulryan Funeral Home, 725 Hebron Ave., Glastonbury on Sunday July 10, from 2-6pm.
