Jon Mobley Sr.
Jon Robert Mobley, Sr.
Our loving father, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend Jon Robert Mobley, Sr. entered into the loving memory of his Creator Jehovah God on June 4, 2018. He was surrounded by his family and peacefully passed away at home.
He was born in East Alton, Ill on January 12, 1932. After graduating high school he entered into the U.S. Navy and was stationed at Camp Pendleton, CA. In 1955, after completing his tour, he gained employment with Richfield Oil Refinery in Carson, CA. That is where he met his wife, Joan Bernice Mobley, who he affectionately called “Booger”. In December of 1970 he was transferred to Ferndale, WA to oversee the startup of the Atlantic Richfield Refinery. After being with the company for 30 years, he retired in 1985 at the age of 53.
Jon and Joan were married for 48 years until her passing in 2007. He was a dedicated husband and father, they raised four children and shared in the joys of their families. A son, Jon R. Mobley Jr. of Lake Havasu, AZ; daughter Pamela and son-in-law BJ Peters of Vernal, UT; daughter Patty Mobley of Coupeville, WA; and daughter Nancy and son-in-law Dave Thompson also of Coupeville. His love and devotion to his family was shared with nine grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren. In 1991 they moved to Whidbey Island, a place he enjoyed and loved.
In 1966 he dedicated his life to serving his God, Jehovah. After being appointed as an Elder in 1983, he took every opportunity to share his faith and was a source of encouragement for many.
Along with his deep love for his Creator and passion for his family, he enjoyed music, family boating, traveling and visiting close friends. He will be missed and fondly remembered by all he loved and those who loved him.
The family would like to extend a thank you to Whidbey Health Medical Center and Whidbey Health Hospice for their wonderful services and personal care for Jon.
A memorial service will be held at 2:00 pm, Saturday, June 23, at the Coupeville Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 33, Morris Road (off Highway 20).
