In Remembrance of David Hober – Our Friend

Dave Hober

David Hober was a fixture at Edward J. Darby & Son, Inc. for close to 60 years, and today, we mourn his passing.

Mr. Hober passed away peacefully on October 29, 2020 and leaves behind his loving wife, Barbara, and four children, Kimberly, Teresa, John, and Jeremy. The entire team at Darby sends our condolences, our love, and our support to his family during this difficult time.

In 1958, Dave started at Edward J. Darby & Son, Inc. and quickly become a respected and dependable colleague, often called upon for his product expertise and creative engineering. If there was something that needed to get done, Dave was the man. And he was the man for many years here at Darby. Even after he officially left Darby, he was often in the warehouse showing the guys the best way to tackle a problem. He also spent many, many morning in the conference room chatting over a few cups of coffee. In those conversations, it was clear that Dave was an honest, genuine, and smart man, who deeply cared about Darby, its employees, and his friends.

A deeply religious and good man, Dave will be missed by his congregation and his community.  We at Darby will remember his kind spirit, his resourcefulness, his guidance, and, of course, his passion for Studebakers.

We will miss him. Rest in Peace, Dave.
