Stanley Hobbs May 11, 1935 - March 24, 2024

Stanley Wayne Hobbs, born on May 11, 1935, peacefully departed from this world on March 24, 2024, with his wife and daughter by his side. He is survived by his wife Betty (June), and his four children: Nick Hobbs (Dawn Hobbs), Renea Hughes (David Hughes), Gary Hobbs (Marti Hobbs), and Dena Hobbs (Darcy Hobbs).

Stanley served in the UNITED STATES ARMY and deployed to Germany where he enjoyed touring Europe while on leave.  Stanley also served in the Army National Guard.

Stanley was a loving father who raised four successful children. His legacy lives on through his seven grandchildren: Amanda Loven, Nathan Hughes, James Hobbs, Trevar Hobbs, Tanner Hobbs, Marshall Hobbs, and Bailey Hobbs, as well as his four great-grandchildren: Justin (JJ), Jillyan (Jill) and Jacob Loven, and Elkin Hobbs.

Throughout his life, Stanley was dedicated to his work. He spent over 30 years with Bell Telephone companies, retiring as an Outside Plant Engineer. Even after retirement, he continued to contribute his expertise by contracting for an additional 7 years.  His work took him to various places around the USA.  His favorite home was the one he built in Ash Flat, AR where he spent cherished moments visiting just a week before his passing.

Stanley was known for his willingness to help anyone in need, a trait he embodied until his last days. He found solace and strength in his faith. His last church family was at Cassidy United Methodist Church in Nixa, MO.

Stanley was preceded in death by his sister Wanda Laughlin, and his grandchildren James and Trevar Hobbs.

The family will hold a memorial service later this summer.

Stanley Hobbs will be deeply missed by all who know him. His kindness, dedication, and faith will forever be cherished and remembered.

“Though he may be absent from our sight, he will always be present in our hearts.”

    Nick and Dawn – It is with great sadness I write to tell you how sorry I am for your loss. I have known you both for a long time, but never had the pleasure of meeting your dad, Stanley. I heard so much about him over the years though, that I feel like I know a bit about his spirit through the affectionate stories you shared with me so many times, Nick. I wish you and your entire family peace, and nothing but the fondest memories of this wonderful man.
    Love, Rhianna & Family
