Obituary: Gordon Dobbs

Gordon Santford Dobbs, 59, of Sabetha, died Saturday, Oct. 26, 2019, at the Sabetha Community Hospital.

He was born March 1, 1960, in San Diego, Calif., to Theodore and Darlene (Minter) Dobbs. He was the youngest of 13 children — 11 brothers and one sister. He attended El Capitan High School in Lakeside, Calif.

Gordon worked in construction his entire life, and it was something he genuinely enjoyed. He ran his own company, worked for Habitat For Humanity and taught construction throughout his life. Gordon loved motorcycles, and said there was no better feeling than being on a bike on the open road.

He was preceded in death by his parents and his brothers.

Gordon is survived by his daughters, Kymberli Dobbs Venegas and Sandra Watters; his son, Nathan Dobbs; his nephew who was like a son to him, Garren Hopwood; his sister, Teresa Archer; eight grandchildren; and extended family.

His wish was not to have any services. The family will be having a Celebration of Life in the spring. Online condolences may be left for the family at
