Dobbs was preceded in death by both of his grandfathers, Norman Polfus Sr. and Jim Cretens.

Friends may call from 5 to 8 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 28, at the Allo Coolman Funeral Home in Escanaba. A funeral service to celebrate the life of Lee “Dobbs” Polfus will be held at 8 p.m. on Saturday at the funeral home with Pastor Chris Bergquist officiating.
