James Robert "Bo" Hobbs

February 12, 1952 — April 29, 2023

Springville, TN


James Robert “Bo” Hobbs, age 71 of Springville, TN, died Saturday, April 29, 2023, at the Henry County Medical Center.


He was a self-made, successful businessman who sold industrial equipment with his son, and farmed for many years in Dyersburg, TN.  He later moved to Paris, TN, where they continued selling equipment and then manufactured truck dump systems, landfill tippers and container tilters, which they sold all over the world. He cherished his son and grandchildren, and enjoyed his cattle and his border collie, Letty.  Bo was quick to tell a joke for adult ears only. There’s no doubt that Bo will make heaven shine a little brighter. Rest in peace Bo, we love you.


Bo was born February 12, 1952, in Dyersburg, TN, to the late James Douglas Hobbs and the late Nora Estelle Mallard Hobbs.


He is survived by his wife, Patricia Moore “Patti” Hobbs of Springville, TN; one son, James Curtis “J.C.” (Christie) Hobbs of Paris, TN; one daughter, Kathy (Jason) Lineberry of MS; one sister, Teresa Wendle of Dyersburg, TN; five grandchildren, Max Logan (Carly) Hobbs, Grace Ann Hobbs, Loucas Berry (Hannah) Hobbs, Sayra Kay Lineberry, and Dwight Lineberry; and one great grandson, Luke-Henry James Hobbs.
