They say, “life begins on the first day you are born,” Sydney Patrick Hobbs was born on March 8, 1960, and that’s when his journey began for him. He was the fourth child of seven born to his parents, Howard A. Hobbs and Nettie Louise Davis Hobbs, in Denver, Colorado. He was raised surrounded by his brothers, Timothy, Gregory, David, and his sisters, Cindy and Bridgette. He was educated in the public schools of Denver, Colorado.

On November 14, 1979, Sydney enlisted in the United States Army. While serving his country, he was awarded a Army Service Ribbon, a Overseas Service Ribbon, a Sharpshooter Badge for the M-16 Rifle, and a Sharpshooter Badge for the Hand Grenade. He served with honor and distinction and was honorably discharged.

Sydney met Karen Brinkley in Denver, Colorado in 1995. At the time of his passing, they had been a couple for twenty four years. They both were the proud parents of two daughters, Charity and Sierra. The family shared many happy and precious moments together.

By profession, Sydney was a Truck Driver. He loved his job and enjoyed traveling from coast to coast. He did so for many years.

Sydney was a fun-loving man who enjoyed life and those he encircled. In his free time, he enjoyed watching football, basketball, going fishing, visiting the hills, and spending quality time with family and friends. He will be missed by all who were fortunate enough to have known this kind and wonderful man who leaves a legacy of love. To know Sydney was to love him.

  1. My sincere condolences to the family may God’s promises found at Acts 24:15 and Psalms 37:29 bring you comfort at this difficult time.

  2. To the Family and Friends of Sydney Patrick Hobbs

    Please allow me to express my condolences for the loss of your dear loved one. The pain and sorrow experienced during this difficult time can be overwhelming. However, I am often comforted by the words found in God’s word, the Bible. For instance, when grieving the loss of his dear friend Lazarus, the Bible reports that “Jesus gave way to tears.” (John 11:35). What is even more comforting is the fact that Jesus resurrected Lazarus from the dead, and so like Mary and Martha, Lazarus’ sisters, the Bible expresses the hope of the resurrection whereby we may see our loved ones again. (Read John 11:38-44; 5:28, 29). What a marvelous hope.

    May Jehovah God grant you peace during this time and provide comfort for you and your loved ones.

    Jeanine W.
