Obituary of Gerald Gene Dobbs
On Tuesday December 6, 2022, Gerald Gene Dobbs, loving father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and uncle, passed into the presence of his Lord Jesus at age ninety. He is predeceased by his first wife, Mary (36 years) and his second wife, Betty (20 years). He was born in Port Loring, and lived most of his life in North Bay where he served on the staff of Canadore College for 22 years. Gerry enjoyed reading local history, gardening, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and walking ― and brightened the day of many a North Bay resident as he pleasantly greeted them along the trails, and stopped for a chat with whomever he met. He was a faithful part of Bethel Gospel Chapel and will be deeply missed within that community. He will also be missed by his four children ― Ruth McLaren (Jim), Lois Bishop (Garry), Gloria Martin (Don), and John Dobbs (Pier-Luce), his ten grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. He is also survived by his two sisters Carol Nicholls, and Joyce Watson.
The family would like to thank Dr. Burke and staff of Health Sciences North in Sudbury. Donations may be made to Bethel Gospel Chapel or to the Cardiac Unit of Health Sciences North.To send flowers to the family or plant a tree in memory of Gerald Dobbs, please visit Tribute Store
