Jerry "The Drummer" Hobbs, 78, of Toledo, was born June 3, 1941 to the union of Jerry N. and Beadie Hobbs. Jerry transitioned from life November 2, 2019 at home.

Jerry was a proud graduate of Jesup W. Scott High School in 1959, where he ran track and field. After graduation he was a volunteer coach. As a young entrepreneur he obtained his CDL in 1967 and over the course of years he developed and ran many businesses. In 2001 Jerry retired from Jeep.

Jerry had a great love for music, TV and radio commercials and found great joy performing as a DJ.

Our prayers are with you and family in the loss of Jerry. My late husband George and Jerry shared the same birthday, so they would call each other on that day. I pray that God's comfort and strengthening power will sustain you. God bless you and keep you in His care.

My deepest condolences to you, I am so sure he will be missed. I worked with Jerry at Jeep trucking bodies and I learned so much from him in the 2 years we worked together, I shall never forget him or the life lessons I learned from him. Again my deepest sympathies to you Mrs. Hobbs and your son and granddaughter, my prayers for your Family are on wings to you for your loss.
