Kenneth Lynn Hobbs

Kenneth Lynn Hobbs age 64, was welcomed by the arms of Jesus at his home in Blountville, Tennessee on November 23rd. He leaves behind his loving wife Virginia (Missy) Hobbs along with his daughters Tausha Hobbs, Amanda Franklin, and Stacie Simpson.

He was the best Paw to Gage and Lennon Franklin, Rowen and enwombed Marlow Simpson, and Amelia and Sullivan Campbell.

He is survived by his father Howard Hobbs and wife Marilyn, Mother Barbara Mellons, and brothers Gary and Mike Hobbs and their families.

A devoted Christian and avid fisherman, he was the definition of a devoted family man. Kenneth retired as a shift supervisor at Eastman Chemical Company where he worked for over 30 years.

We will be celebrating his life at First Baptist in Blountville on Saturday November 27th from 4-6 followed by a service at 6.

In Lieu of flowers contributions can be made to the First Baptist Church in Blountville Building Fund, or a donation in his name to skin cancer research or Amedisys Foundation.

It has only been a few weeks since I saw you and Kenneth at HMG. My sister Tammy told me yesterday about Kenneth's passing. I am so sorry to hear about this. I would have come to the funeral home had I known. I know the Lord will watch over you and your family. God bless!

I worked with Ken when he was in coal gas. A good friend and so easy to work with. He cared deeply for all and worked tirelessly to keep the plant safe and running. Always with a smile and he was quick to laugh. A man who's heart was focused on God and family. I missed him when he retired. Heaven gained an angel.

Wish I could come but am sick and I don't want to bring to anyone.

I have lifted my prayers up for Ken and you all.

If every child could say they had a Dad or Paw who loved them as much as this man, there would be No Lonely Children, of this I am Sure! My deepest sympathy and prayers for each of you.
