Clint Dobson was remembered as a vibrant young pastor who always had joy in his heart during the vigil.

"He always had a smile on his face and would hug you as you walked in," said Lida Cummings, a church member, according to The Associated Press.

"He loved everybody. He's going to be greatly missed."

Dobson, who was lead pastor of the satellite ministry of First Baptist Church Arlington, was found dead Thursday inside the church he had been leading for about three years. His ministry assistant survived but was severely beaten. Police suspect it was a robbery.

Dr. Dennis R. Wiles, senior pastor of FBCA, expressed shock as they "try to come to grips with this unspeakable tragedy."


According to reports, Dobson and Elliott were discovered after someone went to check on them Thursday afternoon. When a relative could not reach either of them, someone went to the church, found it locked, peered through the window and saw the victims on the floor. Police were called to the scene.

It's pretty sad that this happens. So far they are still investigating it.

It seems like it's always the really good folks that have this kind thing hit them. Why in hell couldn't it Margie or Fred Phelps? I'd throw a party.
