Larry was born on May 8, 1952 in Bloomington, a son to Bill and Carol (Mielenz) Hobson. His father preceded him in death. Larry was survived by his mother, Carol Hobson of Bloomington, until her passing on December 18, 2023. Also surviving are his children, Kristi Curry of Bloomington and Joe (Shannon) Hobson of Oregon, Wisconsin; grandchildren, Aynslee, Trey, and Peyton Curry, all of Bloomington, and Alex and Trevor Hobson, both of Wisconsin; siblings, Melinda (Dan) Greiner of Hudson and Jeff Hobson of Bloomington; niece, Trisha Pearl; two great-nieces; one great-nephew; and one great-great-nephew.

Larry was a loving son, brother, father, and grandfather. He retired from the Unit 5 school district after many years of service. He was a friend to any and everyone. He enjoyed fishing, family barbecues, and coffee on Sundays with his loved ones. He connected with people through his contagious laugh, quick wit, and stubborn attitude, all of which his family fondly remembers him by. He was most proud of being a father and grandfather and has left us all with the most cherished memories.
