HOBBS--In loving memory of Bill HOBBS.
Not how did he die, but how did he live?
Not what did he gain, but what did he give?
These are the units to measure the worth
Of a man as a man, regardless of birth
Not, what was his church, nor what was his creed
But had he befriended those really in need?
Was he ever ready, with word of good cheer,
To bring back a smile, to banish a tear?
Not what did the sketch in the newspaper say
But how many were sorry when he passed away.
Forever loved and missed by Caryn, Shayne, Taylor and Cassie.

After the war he attended the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London, graduating in 1948 before joining the Old Vic theatre company from 1948 to 1950.
