  2. Pat and family, prayers for you and the family as you go through this difficult time. Scoot was such a dear friend and will be missed by many.


  3. Scoot was a asset to the many crews that he worked with in the phone company.I will always be thankful for the help and life lessons he taught.


  4. President Hobson was my Branch President when I lived in the Greenwood Branch. He was a dear friend and role model for my two sons. When I told my sons of his passing, they began to reminisce about fun, times with him at his home, camping, riding 3 wheelers, and just being kids. It made my heart swell to hear them return to those days 40+ years ago! The role that President Hobson played in our lives left a “shining spot” so that now my six grandsons can benefit from his willingness to stretch his love and kindness to two little fatherless boys! We love you President Hobson! I pray your family will be able to remember every joyful memory and be grateful for your time on earth. Until we meet again…
