ForeverMissed
Donald Walpole Dobbins Jr. (69) of Gulf Shores, Alabama went to be with our Lord Jesus on May 22, 2020. His final days were spent surrounded by family and friends.
He was born February 22, 1951, in Birmingham, Alabama, to Donald and Phyllis Dobbins. His impact and laugh were contagious. He was closest to God in the outdoors, and he passed on these traditions of hunting and fishing to the family and friends alike. He was fierce in his loyalty, in his compassion for family, and spread laughter to everyone he met. He was the type of person who would rather do for others than himself. He led a very successful life-long career at Dobbins Forest Products and had an impeccable reputation in the lumber industry.
He is survived by his brother, Phillip (Cindy) Dobbins; 4 sons, Drew (Marianne) Dobbins, Matthew (Elizabeth) Dobbins, Hunter Dobbins, and Butler Dobbins; and 5 grandchildren, who affectionately referred to him as, “Pop-Pops.”
He was preceded in death by his parents, Donald and Phyllis Dobbins; as well as his loving wife of 35 years, Sandra Clem Dobbins.
An immediate family service will be held at Riverchase United Methodist Church on May 27, 2020 at 12pm.
Condolences may be sent to 105 Bridgewater Drive, Helena, AL 35080.
