This is a personal family web site for Bobby and Rhonda Hobby. We hope you will look and enjoy, if you have ideas or improvements you would like to share let us know.
Rhonda and I have been married for more than 47 years after being "sweethearts" since the 6th grade. We have one child, Dina, who is married to Bennie Branch for over 16 years. They have 3 children, Ben 14, Annabelle 12, and Celiabeth is 6 years old. They are the grandest children in the world. We both were born and have lived in Tifton, GA all our lives with the exception of 1966 - 1970 when Uncle Sam and the Air Force had other ideas. Bennie's family has always lived in Tift County also. Actually we went to school with his mother. Rhonda and I are both retired. I worked for Georgia Power Company for 40 years, 28 of those in engineering and 12 in GIS software development. Rhonda is retired from the medical professional after 40 years as a nurse and medical office manager. We attend the First Assembly of God Church in Tifton since our marriage.
I am an extra class amateur radio (ham) operator of over 35 years. My callsign is W4KN. I am also a private pilot for about 35 years. I got my ham license and my pilots license in the same year. I have been enjoying both hobbies for all this time. I am a Lt. Colonel in the Civil Air Patrol, serving as squadron commander as well as mission pilot. I also enjoy fishing and camping when my busy retirement schedule allows.
Rhonda was a Certified Medical Manager and is a member of the Professional Association of Health Care Office Management. She has worked in hospitals and physician's offices all her medical career. She is now retired and has assumed the husband supervisory position. She is an avid reader and has quite a book collection. She also enjoys collecting depression glass. Her greatest enjoyment is spoiling the grandchildren. She says that she doesn't spoil them but provides everything they want to them. Rhonda is also a amateur radio (ham) operator. Her callsign is KD4SPA. She is a member of a national online prayer group called Proverbs 31. This is a group formed by women for spiritual guidance and support.
We are happy with where we are, as well as who we are. I think that is success for anyone that can say that. We are just "normal" everyday people who enjoy each other and our life together. I hope you enjoy this "first" webpage that I have put together. It's purpose is to be enjoyed, inform, and be a place where family and friends can share. It is also a place for our 1963 Tift County High School graduates to keep up with each other and with each others life as you are willing to share it here.
Thank you for visiting us. Bobby
