The VFW, Cooties, and their Auxiliaries give so much to so many veterans in need. The loving, hardworking men and women of these honorable groups work tirelessly for the benefit of all who serve, or have served, our great nation.
David James Hobdy was one of the veterans who not only served his country with honor, but continued to serve his fellow veterans, and the communities in which he lived, with the same honor and dignity.
Now it is our turn to honor David with a grand send off into Glory. I am asking for a show of force, so to speak, to give David the farewell he so richly deserves.
He brought so much to all the lives he touched. He was a leader, a friend, a helper, an ear to listen, a shoulder to help bear the burden, a bridge to cover any gap, and most importantly an example for us all.
I am asking that you spread this message far and wide. Please come and pay your final respects and bid fair winds to this wonderful Navy Veteran.
Also, if you are so inclined, please jot down a memory, a thought, a saying, a story, or anything you wish (humor is great). Bring this with you and drop it in our basket. Even scraps of paper will work. Please let us know your name on your writing if you are willing. We want to create memories for generations to come.
We very much look forward to seeing everyone this Thursday, October 22, 2020 between 1 and 4 pm at Herberger Family Elk Grove Funeral Chapel, 9101 Elk Grove Blvd, Elk Grove, CA 95624
David Hobdy had passed Saturday October 10th. Our hearts and prayers go out to his family.
He will be sorely missed
