Paul Daniel Hoobler 11/1/1963 - 3/24/2011

We'll never understand or even begin to know why...but we'll keep you close, always. It won't even seem you've gone. Our hearts, in big and small ways will keep the love that keeps us strong.

Paul Daniel Hoobler departed this life in the early morning hours of March 24th. We hope that he has found peace in the path that he has chosen. Born in San Diego California, Paul spent his childhood playing baseball, surfing at Mission Beach, and jumping dunes in Ensenada, Mexico - among a myriad of adventures. He will be sadly missed by friends and family, from coast to coast and around the world. He is survived by his son Jack Hoobler, Parents Jack and Gail Hoobler, Grandmother Mickey Hoobler, all of Richland, WA and Sister Marcie Lewis of Reading, PA.

If there was anything in this life that he was most certainly proud of, it was his son. His mission in life was to make sure he shared in the experiences of his life with his son Jack, not merely attending them. Camping, fishing, boating, off-roading, VW building, working at the Ranch, and then more fishing. Into that great wide open they went. Paul had a big heart but empty pockets, yet still strived to make sure Jack could have a chance to try new things...and to learn a thing or two in the process.

He was a generous spirit and quick with a joke or a jab. Although not a carpenter by trade, he was proud of the house on Roberdeau - the house that he would often say "me and my dad rebuilt". Paul was an avid fisherman, winning accolades and awards throughout his lifetime. He could catch a 20 pounder with a piece of twine and an empty hook. And he could not only catch 'em, he could cook 'em. ...Fish On!

Join us for a celebration of memories at Einan's Funeral Chapel, Wednesday March 30th at 5pm.

  • Dear Jack, Gail, and Bones,

    Please accept our deepest sympathy and love during this terrible time. I can’t remember a time, vacation, event that didn’t include Paul and little Jack. He always made things fun and look so easy. He also had unlimited patience when he was with the kids. Jack, your dad was so proud of you and amazed at the fine young man you are growing into. I know I speak for our whole family when I say we will miss him so much. We love you all.

  • We lost a beautiful soul when Paul passed. He was loved by so many. I wish he had known that. I will miss his smile, sense of humor, care and concern for others, our shared “pranks”, and of course, our friendship. Paul was a devoted father and loved his son more than anything in the world.

    Paul’s family remain in my thoughts and prayers.

    Love, Virginia

  • sometimes life is like a long and lonely road each and every corner leads you further from your home each and every moment you feel more and more alone driving down lifes highway aproching the unknown you see the signs around you but your eyes begain to roam your mind begains to wounder what your life may have instore your hands are on the wheel and the peddles to the floor your heart starts beating faster as the rain begains to pour the clouds begain to disipate as the sun begains to shine the fog it lifts and gos away then you leave this world behind, until we meet again.

  • Paul I have known you my whole life, you were the closest thing I ever had to a dad, whenever I would call you for a favor you would drop everything and come help me. I wish I could have told you how important you were to me. When I think about you I remember you laughing and smiling and that is how I am going to remember you.
