Obituary

Francis James Hobby Jr. (1946-2017)
Uncasville- Frank J. Hobby, 71, died early Thursday morning at New London Rehab & Care. Frank was a devoted husband of 50 years to his beloved wife Dorothy Corey Hobby. He has three daughters he is proud of, Doreen Hobby Schmoegner of East Lyme, Charlene Hobby of Uncasville, and Danielle Hobby Alcoba of Groton. Two Son-in-laws, Willy Schmoegner and George Alcoba. The family was blessed with three precious grandchildren: Jacqueline Savana Hobby Thomas, Jett Francis Alcoba, and Trace Elliot Alcoba. Frank celebrates his life surrounded by many extended family like: Everett & Betsi Corey, Ellen & Duane Janes, Pat & Jim Knapp, and Helen Silva, along with nieces and nephews. Frank has bonded with many co-workers over the years and has some strong friendships like Les Smith, Harold Dryer, Bob Hutchinson, and Bob Decutitus.
Frank had a rich and successful life as a strong provider for his family. He took pride in that. He worked at Goodyear in Groton , then went into the Air Force in 1965 and he returned to begin his career as a Ship Test Operation technician at Electric Boat Corporation. Frank received a Distinguished Shipbuilder award for his over 40 years of work at EB. Frank retired for medical reasons after 43 years, in 2008.
Frank enjoys Sunday dinners with his family, mowing the lawn, raking leaves, spending time at the casinos with friends, trips to the white mountains, Cocoa Beach, and his grandchildren.
