    I just saw that Mr. Hobbs passed away. I am so sad for all his family and friends. Mr. Hobbs was my math teacher at Rivercrest during the@ first two years after Bogata/Talco consolidated in 1965. I had the privilege of being his student aid my senior year. He was great teacher and had a very positive influence on all of his students in my class. May you all be comforted in this time.

    I am sorry to hear of the passing of Mr. Hobbs. As the responder above, I too was a math student of Mr. Hobbs at Rivercrest High School. He also drove my school bus for a few years. I enjoyed our interaction in class and conversations on the bus rides to and from school. He was a very good man as well as an excellent teacher. I lost track of him after he left to Rivercrest for naval service, but I have thought of him many times over the years.

  4. Janelle says:

    I just heard of Conrad’s death and I am deeply saddened. He was an assistant principal when I was in high school and years later I would end up skydiving with him. I will fondly treasure those memories. So sorry for his family’s loss.
