William Lyle (Bill) Dobbins, 68, of Pine Bluff, died Saturday, October 24, 2020, at Hickory Heights Health and Rehab in Little Rock. He was born April 21, 1952, in Pine Bluff to Roy H. and Margaret Hugon Dobbins. He received a Bachelor of Science in Education from UCA in 1973, and became a teacher, having taught in both Texas and Arkansas.

Sorry to hear of Bill's passing. He was a good friend for many years. His Mom was one of my HS teachers...
