Stephen Eric Dobias passed away on Friday, March 29th, 2019, at the age of 59.

The son of Charles and Mary Smith Dobias was born January 8th,1960 in Sewickley, Pennsylvania. His childhood was spent in rural Pennsylvania. There he would later attend Ambridge High School. After high school Stephen joined the United States Army. He served until being honorably discharged on January 11, 1984. It was also while serving his country that Stephen met fellow soldier Lisa Hardenberger. The two would marry on July 17, 1984. In the years following, Stephen would earn his AMP license. His career choice would move him several times over the next few years. He worked for places such as Petroleum Helicopters in Louisiana, Rockwell International in Ohio, Lockheed Martin, in Georgia, and McDonnell Douglas in St. Louis, eventually taking a job with American Airlines in Tulsa. He was currently serving his 29th year with them.

In his spare time Stephen had a few pastimes that he enjoyed. He looked forward every spring to raising his garden. He loved being able to raise his own vegetables, and cooking with them for his family on Sundays. When time allowed, he enjoyed watching a good western on television. However, his true love was spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Maryjane Dobias, and Charles and Maryann Dobias, and brother, Charles Dobias Jr.

Survivors include his wife Lisa Dobias; daughters, Roxie Metz, Danielle Haus and husband Chris, Stephanie Dobias, and Celeste Dobias and companion Dante Jarvis-Turner; grandchildren, David, Taylor, Aubrey and Caitlyn Metz, Abbigayl, Mckenzi, Serenity and Cannon Haus, and Chance Jarvis-Turner; brother Michael Dobias, and many more loved ones, including his beloved dogs, Strawberry, and Lollypop.
