Thomas Ralph Bobbitt

February 16, 1953 — August 10, 2012

Thomas Ralph Bobbitt, age 59, of La Grande, died August 10, 2012 at his home. He died as he had lived his life - without fear and without pain - with his loved ones sister Kathy and her husband Lep, his favorite nurse Diane and his coffee drinking friend Tom Fine, by his side.

Thomas was born on February 16, 1953, the son of Ralph and Roselene (Leininger) Bobbitt in Torrance, California. He graduated from high school and attended trade schools after. He was a world traveler and the world was his stomping ground. He loved exploring new areas and making new friends worldwide. He was a man of many talents, owning and operating autobody shops, owning and operating a commercial fishing boat and working as a Merchant Marine. He thoroughly enjoyed good friends, good food and good coffee. He was honored and loved by his family and friends.

Survivors include his Siblings, Pat Zbylut, Kathy Lepper, Carl Bobbitt, Dick Bobbitt and David Zimmer; nieces and nephews, Danelle Delancey, Tim Delancey, Dawn Lepper, J.P. Zbylut and Hannah Johnson; and their children whom he held dear, Robert, Daniel, Katelynn, Alan and Charli, Baylin and other relatives and friends.
