Ty Dobbins

July 5, 1944 — November 18, 2022

Ty Dobbins passed away peacefully after a 4 ½ year courageous battle with cancer on Friday, November 18, 2022. Ty was born to Florence Dobbins Schoshinski on July 5, 1944.

Ty enjoyed outdoor activities. He was still shooting archery the past 4 years with his friend Whitey. Whitey always told funny stories and would have Ty in stitches.

He also enjoyed motorcycling. He traveled to many states and all around Wisconsin with the Badger Motorcyclists of Wisconsin and the Rustic Riders. He really enjoyed seeing the different parts of the U.S.

Ty was also an avid golfer. He went every week with his friends Bill, Mark, and Steve. Even if he was disappointed with his score, he had lots of laughs with them.

Ty is survived by significant other Elaine Wachtveitl, daughters Sherryl (Brian) Pues (Nichols, WI.) Donna Higgins (Birmingham, AL.) and son Tyrone Dobbins (Oshkosh, WI.) Grandchildren Kathryn Pues, Tyler Dobbins, Ava Dobbins, McKenzie Higgins, and Grey Higgins. Sisters Quinn (Bruce) Bursack, Kerry Schumacher, brother Terry (Billie) Dobbins and sister-in-law Jean Dobbins. And many nieces and nephews.

Ty was preceded in death by his mother, daughter Penny, brothers Lee and Kim Dobbins, brother-in-law Gary Schumacher.

Ty had some great supportive and caring neighbors and friends always there to help him. He appreciated Mark, Bonnie, Steve, Joanne, Bill, Sue, Joe, Christie, and John for their time. A very special furry friend that always was part of Ty’s life, Josie.

Thank you to Dr. Matthew Kraemer for the wonderful caring years as his primary doctor.

Thank you to Dr. Bradley Heraly and all the staff at Michael D. Wachtel Cancer Center for the care and compassion you showed Ty.

Thank you to Compassus Hospice for the support and compassionate care given to Ty and family members.

Ty’s final wishes were that his family and friends celebrate him instead of mourning him. He requested no services.
