In Loving Memory of Gregory Thomas Hobson.

With respect to his family and friends we would like to honor his life at the age of 75 years old when he went home to our Heavenly Father on Feb 12, 2024.
Gregory was born in Independence, MO; February 1, 1949. When he was 23 years old, he enlisted into the Armed Forces and became a Military Police Officer as a second career choice. His first career choice was to be a fighter pilot, but he could not pass his eye exam to do his color blindness.
Gregory was stationed in Germany in the beginning year of 1972. Greg was heading to Augsburg, Germany on a train to visit his friends, little did he know that this day of September 29th, 1972 was where he met his wife to be Elfriede (Ellen). They both were hopeless romantics, Ellen was not looking for love, wearing bellbottoms and a jacket as he walked by, he looked like James Bond to Ellen. They soon got married on March 12, 1973 in Kafertaler, Manheim.
After actively serving in Vietnam, where both Gregory and Danny Wagner enlisted together and also served in Vietnam, was one of his closest childhood friends and unfortunately Danny did not make it. Gregory and Ellen attended his memorial and Danny’s mother had such a great respect for Greg that she specifically chose Greg to raise the Flag in Honor of her son where he lay to rest at the same Cemetery.
May 17, 1973, Gregory completed his honorary services with the Army and then traveled to meet up with his wife Ellen at her aunt’s home where they spent their honeymoon for 3 days in Paterson, New Jersey.
Greg and Ellen then moved in with Gregory’s family Kenneth, Ruth and Ron Hobson in Richland, Washington. Gregory had many jobs in between and one of his best quotes was “Once a cop always a cop.” Once they got their apartment, Greg found his calling as a Pasco Police Officer where he gained the reputation called “The Bear” and made many friends as he was well loved along the way.
Gregory is survived by his wife Ellen of 52 years, his daughter Laura Wampole of 47 and her 2 twin children. His only Grandchildren Heather and Caleb 15 years old and by his son Phillip Hobson of 42, and brother Ronald Hobson of 67.
Gregory was a wonderful, honest, loving husband, and a caring Father who was very understanding person and he was the best Father and Grandfather that God had sent during his time spent here. Gregory was loved by many and may he follow the river home and rise up when the last Trumpet sounds, rest well we love you!
