Peter Dobie was honorable, kind, more than fair, sweet, charismatic, funny, gentle, and so loving and giving. He worked hard at everything he put his hands on. He was successful in his secular job as an Industrial Engineer, and he thrived at Evangelism, both locally and abroad. He touched so many lives with his ministry as a Bishop, Counselor, Teacher, Mentor, and Friend.
He loved life and his family so much- above all else, he loved the Word of God. He was an incredible husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, and friend. He taught us all so many lessons in life. He was loved by all and will be deeply missed!
