Joseph Hobby Obituary: The City of Savannah and the Savannah Fire Department are both saddened by the passing of Joseph Hobby, who formerly served as Fire Chief. Hobby was 84 years old when he passed away on Tuesday morning in Raleigh, North Carolina. During his tenure as chief, which lasted from 1988 until 1997, Hobby was dedicated to keeping the community safe and preventing loss of life. During a firefight, Hobby was the driving force behind the innovation that saw an apparatus fitted with hoses measuring 4 inches in diameter. This increased the amount of water that could be used. Additionally, he was accountable for the hiring of a number of firefighters who are now in positions of leadership. On August 23, a funeral service will be held at Harmony Baptist Church beginning at 10 a.m. and continuing until noon. Donations can be sent to either that church or the Windsor Forest Baptist Church, according to the request made by the family.   Full Obituary
