Member Spotlight – The Dobson Family

Three Generations of Chief Engineers (from L to R) Michael C. Dobson, Walt Dobson, Jr., and Michael E. Dobson.

At the Octoberfest Chief Engineer’s meeting this past October, three generations of the Dobson Family attended. Unsuprisingly, there have been not three but four generations of Dobsons who have been Chief Engineers.

The tradition started with Walter Dobson, Sr., who was a long-time Chief Engineer and union member. Although he passed over 20 years ago, he is still missed by his family and friends.

There are many Dobson Family members who are also Chief Engineers and have been in the past. These include Donald Dobson, Kenny Dobson and Rick Dobson, just to name a few.
