Mike Dobbin was a member of our shared community and will be missed by all those who loved him. As a teacher and long-time resident of River Heights, Mike developed many lifelong relationships as a coach and volunteer in his neighbourhood. He was an avid sports fan whose passion for our city extended to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Winnipeg Jets.
The Dobbin Family Trees Fund has been established to collect gifts in memory of Mike. The family has chosen to direct gifts received to the Winnipeg School Division 150th Celebration. Trees will be planted at multiple schools to celebrate the anniversary and Mike’s commitment to youth and their pursuit of education. The gifts collected will not be endowed but immediately granted back to the community.
