Obituary for John Albert Dobb

John Albert Dobb was born on March 5, 1924 in Muskegon, Michigan. He was the oldest child of the late Albert and Jennie Dobb. John passed away on March 21, 2019 in Commerce Township, Michigan at the age of 95.

Upon completion of high school, John enlisted in the United States Army Air Corps, where he became a fighter pilot, serving in the Pacific Theatre during WWII. After the war, he continued to serve in the Air Force reserves, earning the rank of Major prior to his retirement in 1984.

John earned a Bachelor’s degree at Michigan Tech and went on to work at General Motors for 35 years. He worked mainly out of the Proving Grounds in Milford and the GM Tech Center in Warren. In his free time John loved to be outside, gardening, golfing or puttering about the yard.  John loved his family and he loved Hamlin Lake and Ludington, MI, spending spring, summer and fall there in the home he built with his wife, Vivian. Always one to enjoy a good time, he was known for his Manhattans during happy hour and gatherings with friends and family.  Everyone who met John appreciated his good nature and sense of humor. With his generous heart, John had a large extended family and became a father figure to many.   He was a man with a strong belief for doing the right thing and for treating people the right way. John loved his family, his home, his country and state, and his life. He will be deeply missed by all who were lucky enough to have known him.

John was the loving husband of Vivian. They celebrated 70 years of marriage together, prior to Vivian passing in 2017. He was the cherished father of Bill, Barbara, Marianne (David), Cindy (Mike), Mindy (Dean) and Mark (Jennifer). John was a proud grandfather of 8 and great-grandfather of 10. He was cherished by his younger sister, Jeane. He is also survived by many loving extended family members and friends

John will be laid to rest with Vivian at Great Lakes National Cemetery on Monday, April 1, 2019 at 11 am.
