July 8, 1954 - January 23, 2020
Rev. James Albert “Jim” Dobbs, 65, of Leonardtown, MD passed away on Thursday, January 23, 2020 at the Hospice House of St. Mary’s County, after a long and courageous battle with cancer. He was born on July 8, 1954 in Washington, DC to the late Edmund George Dobbs and Mary (McGeggin) Dobbs. Jim was a strong, fun-loving, charismatic man who cherished his family above all. He worked as a driver for AAA Transportation. He drove everything from an ambulance, limousine and party bus during his career. He made many friends throughout his years as a driver, during joyful moments and some during life’s hardships offering only prayers for healing. Jim went on to become a reverend under the tutelage of Joe Orlando. Rev. Jim married many couples and felt great pride in his part in beginning their happily-ever-after. If you asked Jim what he loved most in life, he would say family. He was a fighter who lived to help others. His cancer diagnosis brought out a spirit of optimism that helped him raise money and awareness through positivity and his yearly “Cancer-Free” picnic. Never one to backdown from a challenge, Jim’s legacy will be to stand tall, face your problems and move forward. Jim loved Maryland, lived his entire life there, and couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. He was proud of his Maryland roots. As a Washington Redskins fan, he rooted for the burgundy and gold with everything he had on game days. Jim is survived by his children, James Dobbs (Kate) of Triangle, VA, and Jessie Hewett (Daniel) of El Paso, TX; grandchildren, Avery, Autumn and James, Jr. ; siblings, Michael Dobbs of LaPlata, MD, David Dobbs of Rosedale, MD, Thomas Dobbs of Rosedale, MD, Sharon Blevins of Shady Side, MD, Carol Boyd of Mechanicsville, MD and Susan Dobbs and numerous close friends he considered family.
