Vail Daily column: Dale Charles Hobson, 1962-2015

Dale Charles Hobson, 53, passed away peacefully at Vail Valley Medical Center, on Thursday surrounded by co-workers and friends. Born May 11, 1962, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to Jeanette Theresa (Weichelt) Hobson and Robert Bernard Hobson, Dale was an avid skier, German shepherd lover and huge Pittsburgh sports fan. His quick wit and dry humor brought a smile to everyone that knew him. Dale is survived by his mother, brother Daryl, three nephews, many friends and his 2-year-old German shepherd, Zuko.

Memorial gatherings will be held later this year in Vail and Pittsburgh. Further notices will be posted. In lieu of flowers, consider donating to the Shaw Regional Cancer Center in Dale’s name: PO Box 1529 Vail, CO 81658, visit or call 970-569-7766.
