The Lord must have very special plans for this special husband, father and grandfather. Please know how much you are in our thoughts and prayers. Hopefully, it gives you some confort to know that he and Brian are reunited. I'm sure he is riding his way around Heaven as we speak! With deepest sympathies and much love to all...

On behalf of Standard Bearings Companies, please accept our condolences for your sudden loss of Mike last week. I was stunned when I heard the news from John at Accurate Bushing. Mike & I enjoyed numerous dinner meetings over the years. These sessions always produced stimulating conversations covering lots of interesting topics. Mike always spoke with pride about his family & farm. From the verbal narrations of his various adventures over the years, I'm sure you folks also have lots of fun (& funny) memories of your time together! I will always fondly remember Mike not only as a good storyteller, but more importantly as a man of integrity & pride, with a keen sense of service to his customers! May God bless you all & thank you for sharing Mike with the rest of us!

I met Mike in 1998, I will miss our conversations I will miss his banter and outstanding wit. Mike was always there for me when I had a question. His knowledge transfered over many topics. What can I say I will miss Mike very much and I will try everyday to do my job as well as he did his. Theres a huge hole at ABC we all feel the loss, I know Mike will be up there watching us and I take great comfort in that. GOD SPEED MIKE DOBEY

Your friend,

We had many trips together and you were always so sweet. Always a smile - always a hug. You worked tirelessly for ABC and I always admired that about you. It makes me so sad that you're gone - you left us all way too soon. You are missed and thought of so fondly so often. You were truly a wonderful man, my heart goes out to your family. My deepest condolences.
