Donald Dobbs

December 29, 1938 — February 2, 2024

Donald “Don” Dobbs (Dobleski), 85, of Algonquin, IL passed away

peacefully on Friday, February 2nd, 2024 at Sherman Hospital.

He was preceded in death by his son, Michael; his brothers, sister, and

his parents Joseph and Marie Dobleski.

Don was born on December 29th, 1938 in Milwaukee, WI. He was an

avid baseball and basketball player, even winning his high school’s

championship baseball game against Kelly High School at Wrigley Field

in 1957. After high school, he transitioned to coaching and then

officiating both sports for many years. Throughout his life, Don would

be enjoying either a Chicago Cubs, Bears, Bulls, or Blackhawks game on

television, working on his various puzzles, fishing, woodworking, playing

Zelda, teaching his grandchildren how to play many different card

games, and spending time with his family. While he was a man of few

words, he warmed the hearts of his family members by his beaming

smile, hugs, and infectious belly laughs. He was hardworking, loving,

and a genuine person all around.

Don is survived by his loving wife, Patricia (Sujdak) Dobbs; his son,

Jeffrey Dobbs; his daughter Collette (John) Svabek; his grandchildren,

Nicole (Tim) Soloff, Katie (Ryan) Freeland, Johnny (Molly) Svabek, and

Tonia (John) Svabek; his great-grandchildren, Peightyn, Kenzie, Logan,

Remy, and Reece; and several nieces and nephews.

The family of Don wishes to extend our sincere thanks to the nurses at

Sherman Hospital and JourneyCare that took great care of him.

A Celebration of Life will be held in June for family and friends with

details to follow.
