Today I remember my friend and coworker. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think of you and the effect you had on my family. I still have the picture of you riding your newly purchased motorcycle up I-17 and the smile on your face as you watched me snap it... You are missed my friend... Rest in Peace John!

It has been almost two years since you left. I remember your first day when you came to the FTO squad. Fresh out of the Academy and so anxious to learn, to do, to excel and be a great Phoenix cop. You did exactly that. Your enthusiasm, strength and courage were second only to your love of the job and tat was second only to your love of your family.
Rest in peace, my friend.

To Mrs. Hobbs, children and the rest of the family.
I have prayed for you guys today. There is so many of us who are thinking of you and wanting to support you one way or another. There is very little we all can do to alleviate your pain, but just know that you will always have the help you need from those who have walked this same road that you are on now. Just reach out.

He went to work that day and did not know
This shift he served would bring such sorrow
This call to duty would be his last
His time on earth is now his past
God set this day as his time to go
Rest in peace Deceive Hobbs, now a hero
He gave the ultimate sacrifice
With integrity and pride he paid the price
His family, friends and colleagues will mourn
As an angel in heaven he is now reborn
His golden heart stopped beating
Hardworking hands at rest
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the very best.
