    I sending prayers to Sister Hober and all my love. Thanks for sharing him with us he helped me with my kids we I 1st got to Kensington I always loved he had no filter. That’s what I needed I would be tired in pain but to get to meeting early. I needed to get a hug from him and we have our conversation. He made sure always I was ok I prayed for him always he was my elder but he became a friend. He was compassionate, loyal, and approachable. I’m hurting because it’s natural we are human but who will call me and I hear him tell me I’m deaf because I keep saying Huh, lol on phone. We laughed but we have alot of serious conversations. I cherish our times together. See you soon my dear friend.

  • Love you Dad. See you soon in Jehovah’s intended world paradise

    He was such a loving person (and funny). I love that fact that he would laugh and joke with but he knew when to be serious. I could have a great spiritual conversation with him. He was one of the first to come to our home to comfort and help our family in our time of distress. Until Jehovah calls his name, he will be missed.
    Sending our love!
    You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.

    Dear Dad:
    What makes a dad? Is it someone who shares the same DNA? NO it’s not, it’s someone who is willing to share his life and love with children that are not his. Dave Hober, you were that father to me and my siblings through and through. And no one will ever take that away from me.
    Back when you meet mom and dated; I was a 8/9 year old. I did not know then that I needed someone to guide me through life to be the women I grew up to be. If I did not have you in my life I do not know where I would be today. Because of your discipline, love and attention I grew up to graduate High School, College to become a Teacher, an EMT and a Fire Police officer to protect people. I loved and love you for who you are and will never forget you. I want you to sleep and wake up in the new system and find mom and all the family so we can be together, living with out pain or sin.
    Dad I never thought anyone would love me, as I was a fluffy (overweight) person. And had Low Self esteem of myself. But I always love spending time helping you fix up the cars and learning about car engines. And I tried my best to help with my brothers and sister when you and Mom worked nights in the garage starting your business. I loved our family trips to upper potter county and going on the famer when you visited your friend (sorry can’t remember their name) and I would go riding on the horse on their farm.
    DAVE HOBER I’m proud to have you and to call you my Dad now and Always!!!!!
    I love you Daddy.
    Your oldest Daughter,
    Kimmy
    I’m miss you so much DAD!

  • I will miss Dave. But always remember how faithful he was. On the day we see him again oh how wonderful a day that will be! I send my love to you and the family. He was a great example to many including me. He will remain in Jehovah’s memory and how Eager Jehovah will be to wake him up!

    We will never forget all the precious moments we had with Brother Dave Hober throughout the years . He always made us smile with his warm personality. He was a genuine, humble and loving person who was worthy of imitation. We learn so many good things from Dave such as being patient, mild and enduring. We will miss his beautiful smile, his contagious laugh, and his loving generosity.
    He was so easy to talk to and he always listened with his ears and his heart . No matter what problem we faced he always had a positive attitude to help us deal with the situation. We look forward to seeing you soon in paradise thanks to Jehovahs promise ( Revelation 21:5 ).

    We send our love and prayers to you Sister Hober.

    Our Warm Christian Love
    – Carrasquillo Family.

  • Our condolences go to the Hober family. We love you all very much and will miss Dave, but look so forward to seeing him in our near future. Barbara is a beautiful person and a wonderful wife. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Our prayers are for her children as well as we hope they all find comfort in this difficult time.
    With love,
    The Otero family

  • Dave was such a good friend of the Hicks family in Trevose PA. I always knew he was loyal to Jehovah and the friends, and marrying Barb was a wonderful change in his life. He could also be counted on for a smile and warm hospitality. It is friends like Dave that add so much to the mosaic of our lives. It will be wonderful to see him happy and healthy and ready to get to work in Paradise, especially if any engines need fixin’!! Love to the Hober family. Stay faithful, we’re almost there! ❤️

  • Anthony and Andrea Gbemudu / November 2, 2020 at 9:43 pm

    We truly appreciate being able to express of our love for our dear brother Hober, all the loving and fun memories will keep us until we see him again”which is just around the corner” can’t wait to see his smiling face so that we can give him a high five. We are here now and forever to support the family in whatever way you need.

  • We are thinking of you and keeping you in our prayers. Looking forward to the days mentioned in Rev 21 3-4. All our love, Carol and Donna Graber

  • Mom, your partner in life has fallen asleep. In Jehovah’s day, he will call and Dad will answer. You will see him and he will know who you are. This is what we have been waiting for. Jehovah has been there with you. You were never alone. Now that dad has returned to dust, Jehovah will renew him to a perfect body. We will miss him but rejoin him in due time.
    Love you always,
    Terri

He was so funny we will miss him for that. We will see him real soon. Barb you took good care of him. Praying for comfort and strength for the family. 2thessalonians 2:” 17 “may our God comfort your hearts and make you firm”

    My deepest condolences to my strong and loving spiritual sister and friend Barbara and the the Hober family. My loving Brother Dave Hober will be missed and we look forward to the day when we will see him again in Paradise. His faithfulness to Jehovah and his endurance was an anchor and admired.

    From Savannah: She “looks forward to the fulfillment of Revelation 21:4 and she hopes this helps as much as it’s helped her during her losses, Jehovah is always there for you and so are all the friends!”

    We love you.

    Dave Hover, I met Dave thirty-eight years ago when I came to work at E. J. Darby & Sons, right there and then I know he was a good man. We introduce to each other and he said to me, “if you need any help to fix or learn about a job or a machine, let me know, I’ll work with you”. I will never forget that moment. Because that exactly what he did, every time i had a problem at work, let me call Dave, and he always answered. Then as time went by, from time to time, he would like at me and said, ” want to talk about it” i need to Dave, he would say, come on let’s talk, and he’ll listen to me and always help me out. That’s why I always pray for him and always will and for his family specially his wife ( Barbara) so that Jehovah guide the family and friends through this rough time. Dave will always be remember by me and many. Blessings to the family and to all.

  • DANIEL A DIBRUNO / November 5, 2020 at 11:07 am

    I have known Dave for over 65 years.
    He was my boss.
    I was his boss.
    He was my customer.
    I was his customer.
    We were business associates.
    We were business partners.
    Most of all we were friends!
    He was honest, a man of his word, and a man of great integrity.
    His life elevates his JW community.
    We were not the same faith, but I sure we believe in the same God.
    He will be missed!
    Rest in peace, Dave.
    May God Bless us all.
    Dan Di Bruno, Sr.

    Sincerely, Dawn Marie Sampson

  • I really didn’t know my brother that long. But what I know of him is that he was kind and a soft spoken man.. He will be missed. I would love to share my poem with all that it brings comfort too.. It’s called

    The Resurrection:
    Go ahead it’s okay to cry!
    In just a little while longer Jehovah God will wipe
    all these tears from our eyes. The whole world will
    be a great big beautiful paradise!
    And we will not be surprised to see all our
    loved ones rise.
    No more sickness!. No more sin! No more death!
    The world will be in the “Garden of Eden” again!
    There will be an end to old age, tears, fears and wars
    the former things will have passed away. Only ‘happy
    days’ will be here to stay! PeAce!🌷

  • I first met Dave many years ago when I worked with him during the summers while I was in high school. I re-spooled bobbins of wire for him, and he was not shy about letting me know when they weren’t wound correctly. I came back full time almost 25 years ago and would walk by him almost every morning. He always looked up and asked how I was doing and how my parents were doing. We would talk for a few minutes, mostly about life and family and the Studebaker he was working on. It seemed like he didn’t get too far restoring it, and his son John told me it was never really about actually finishing it, it was that he just loved working on it.
    I offer my condolences to Barbara, Jeremy, John, and all his children and grandchildren. He was a faithful man, and I hope that knowing they will all meet again someday will help them get through this difficult time.

  • Words cannot express how deeply sorry I am. To the Hober family we are here for you. May Jehovah continue to grant you the strength needed to get through this difficult time.

    Dave was a great teacher. I learned so much from him. As my elder and group overseer during those years in Aramingo he helped me grow as a spiritual man. I will miss him calling me an old man and telling my son to take his hands out of his pockets. Till this day he remembers that. It’s the little things we never forget. Your loving heart and willing spirit to always want to help, that was not only a great example but a molding experience for me. Today i can imitate his faith and help the friends the way he did, with love. I can’t wait to see my old friend again soon, in paradise.

  • WE LOVE YOU SO VERY MUCH FAMLIY… DAVE WAS AN ALSOME FRIEND HE TOOK HIS TIME TO ALWAYS HELP OTHERS . WOW

    WE LOVE YOU DAVE

    As I walk into the Kingdom Hall for our Thursday meeting, racing in to change out of my scrubs. Rushing before the meeting starts. After what seemed to be a very long day at work. I see this gentle smile and I receive a gentle greeting “Hello, My sister good seeing you here today.” That welcoming calming smile of my dear brother Dave Hober. That smile that just seemed to really say, you can relax now you are in Jehovah’s house, your stress, anxiety and worries are gone! That greeting just made all the difference. The love Dave Hober showed all of us just made you Love him so much more. I will forever have his smile etched in my heart. I am greatful to Jehovah for meeting Dave and Barbara Hober. Both are loving, humble and kind, I feel like I knew you both all my life. My dear loving sister Barbara, We send you and your family our deepest condolences. May your memories of Dave bring you many smiles and comfort. May Jehovah give you strength as He comforts us all with the promise of seeing our loved ones again in paradise. Our prayers are with you and your family, My beautiful sister Barbara, we love you.

  • Barbara Roberts Potts Atkins / November 29, 2020 at 9:22 pm

    Barbara, I will never forget our visits in your kitchen while Dave worked on my car. As a single parent with limited funds your family was a treasure for me. What would I do without your and Dave’s generosity and loving care. So sorry after marriage to Bob with his 4 kids and my 4 kids we lost contact. We moved to where there was a greater need about 40 years ago; to LaFollette, TN. However it touched my heart to hear of your loss. We will have all eternity to get together again. I will send a note to you soon. Love and prayers for your strength and support from our loving Father, Jehovah
