Jared Hobbs, 44, of Waverly, Ohio passed away on Monday, April 4, 2022 at his home. He was born July 19, 1977 in Columbus, Ohio, son of Willie and Vicki Barker Hobbs of Waverly. Also surviving are two brothers, Joshua (Jennifer) Hobbs and Joseph (Christie) Hobbs both of Waverly; sister, Jenna Hobbs of Waverly; girlfriend, Kelli Ward of McArthur, Ohio; grandmother, Betty Barker of Waverly; aunt, Sherry Ehrenberg of Waverly; uncle, Arthur (Marybelle) Hobbs of Sissonville, West Virginia; aunt, Sherry Coy of Tipp City, Ohio; nieces and nephews, Emma, Eli, Molly, and Evan Hobbs, Megan and Logan Long and Dillon and Clayton Howell; and children special to Jared, Markham Stulley, Izac Ward, Joshua Brewster and Kyler Young. Jared was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather, Paul Barker, paternal grandparents, Charles and Rita Hobbs, uncle, Robert Hobbs and niece, Lillian Belle Hobbs.
Although Jared had no children of his own, he certainly had several that he held very dear to his heart. Words could never express the pride and joy that being “Uncle Jared” brought to his life. Jared’s love of these children was undeniable in both his words and actions, any time they were in his presence. Uncle Jared beamed with proudness as he “pampered his princesses” and toughened up his “little guys”, always wanting to provide something that demonstrated how much he loved them.
Anyone that knew Jared, was well aware of the connections he built beyond what was “expected”. Jared had a deep, unconditional love for so many… not just by blood, but by choice.
Uncle Jared, you will be missed and never forgotten
