We were overcome with a sense of loss and sadness when we heard that Charles had passed away. We were clients of his for years and trusted him completely. Beyond that we both truly liked him. He was honest, compasionate, and had a great sense of humor. Our deepest sympathy to you and your entire family.

My deepest sympathy to Charles Cobb's family. He was truly a wonderful, kind and gentle man. I am one of his long time clients. I depended on him to ensure that my wife and I could manage to retire, and his expertise made that happen. We only saw him a few times a year, but every time we met he had great perspectives to share and ease our concerns. He was always upbeat, and cheerful, and our conversations were thoughtful and wide-ranging. He was one of the few "white hats" (good guys) out in the world today. He will be missed.

Denise, my deepest sympathy to you and your children. I knew Charlie as one who always worked with the best interest of his client in mind yet was always sure to not let the moment pass when he could express the pride he had in his family.

My deepest sympathy to Charlie's wife, Denise and their children. Charlie helped me a great deal when my husband passed two years ago. He was so kind and compassionate at a very tough time in my life. I will never forget that. I felt he was truly an honest, trustworthy and kind man. My thoughts always, Kathy Shrader

I went to school with Charlie first at St. Mary's & then Wayne Memorial. My mother, Jeanette Donohue, also had the privilege of being one of his teachers at St. Mary's. I will always remember his beautiful smile, sharp wit and ability to make others feel at ease. My thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Cobb family. I am so very sorry for your loss.
