Denny always kept us laughing. Every time he rode by our house we expected him to honk his horn and wave. All the Neal's definitely miss him! He always had a wisecrack or something crazy and off the wall to say. It's still hard to believe he's gone. Prayers to the Hobbs family

Sad for the loss of your family member and friend. It was an honor to provide Indiana service to John.

This man is my family. I can't think of anything major that happened in my life that he wasn't a part of. He spent every Thanksgiving and every Christmas at the dinner table, right along side of my parents (Tim and Jackie), my sister (Tiffany), myself and in later years my niece (Rayli). He was there to celebrate my high school graduation, to see me off to college and to harass every boy my sister and I ever brought around. A few years ago I moved to the other side of the state and have missed some of those holidays but he always made a point to see me when I was in town. My mom told me the last thing they talked about this Thanksgiving was him planning to make a trip to my home in West TN to visit Warren and I. While I am sad that I won't ever have the opportunity to have him visit my home I can't help but be grateful for the 28yrs I have known and loved this man and all the memories he has been a part of. Many years ago he gave me a ring that had special meaning to him, that he wore everyday and it is something I will treasure for a lifetime. And one day, should I ever have children, I will tell them many, many stories of their Uncle Hippy. There will always be a place set for you at our family table. We love you, forever.
