Fenton James Hobson passed peacefully in the early morning hours of Monday, November 21, 2022 in Canton, Georgia, surrounded by his family.
He was a Master Craftsman, well known in the Washington D.C. area, who was asked to perform services at the Kennedy White House. He was preceded in death by his wife of 57 years, Annie Laura Hobson.
