Franklin S. Dobson, 78, died on Tuesday, April 11, 2017 from smoke inhalation caused by a fire at his residence in Annapolis, MD.



Frank was born April 26, 1938 in Annapolis, Maryland and was a lifelong area resident and an alumni of Severn School. He attended the Naval Academy before transferring to University of Maryland, where he played lacrosse. He owned and operated “Mr. Bush Garden Center” for many years where friends frequently visited to enjoy the constant entertainment.



He is survived by his sister, Joan Whiteley, his nephews Scotty, Tommy and Andy Whiteley and his grandnieces Ashley and Alex Whiteley.



Frank was well known for his incredible, humorous personality and liked by many people. He truly saw the good in every person and his home was always open for anyone that wanted to come by to visit, have a drink, or to be given a nickname. He will be deeply missed by family and friends. His stories will be passed on for many years to come as he was a true legend amongst friends.



There will be a “Celebration of Life” for Frank announced in the near future and all friends are encouraged to come.
