Please extend our sincere sympathy to your family and your loved ones. Uncle Ken was loved and respected by his newphew, Priam and by Priam's wife, Judy and daughter, Samantha. Uncle Ken and his family always supported our family and traveled to Florida for Samantha's Bat Mitzvah, which was greatly appreciated. Uncle Ken will be missed for his kindness, his intellect and his sense of humor.

I had the pleasure of working with Dr.Kobrin for over 40 years. He was a wonderful person on so many different levels. His patients thought so highly of him and continued their treatment with him for years. Many of them would comment to me how much he meant to them and how great they thought he was. He always made time to see and speak with a person when they walked in the office. It didn't matter to him if they didn't have a appointment. He would make the time for the person. Over the years he helped hundreds of patients deal with their problems. He will be greatly missed by so many people.

Rest In Peace Dr.Kobrin

Dr Kobrin was a beloved physician to my mother. He had an enormous amount of patience, a very easy going manner and a skilled listener. Just last Thursday I just happened to drive by his building on Rock St, seeing his name still on the building and many memories came to my mind.
RIP Dr. Kobrin!

A truly good-hearted person. He always made me feel totally at home when visiting or living there, was surprisingly solicitous of my feelings—I say surprisingly because it often seemed he was lost in a book or something across the room—could appear gruff on the outside but was an old softy on the inside. I always enjoyed getting his opinions on things, not only because he had a keen, wide-ranging intellect but also because you never knew what angle he would come from, except that it would be an honest one. His kids are his best testament. You don’t raise such pure and good people by accident. I’m going to miss him. I’m so sorry for his family.

My deepest sympathy to Ken's family, friends and patients. May your memories ease the pain in your heart and comfort you. I had the pleasure of working with this intelligent man years earlier which sparked me to continue with my education to reach the level of Masters Degree in Social Worker. I remain most grateful. !
Prayers and sympathy to all who knew Dr. Kobrin.

A fine man. A great physician who chose a specialty, psychiatry, that is so very challenging, difficult, and yet rewarding. One must be very courageous when choosing that field. He helped people who painfully struggle in communicating with others, even those whom they love deeply. One of us, Vincent, met him several times. Ken was impressive in the way he clearly showed his competence, good will, and great modesty. He is a loss to his family and to whomever he encountered. Our deep, sincerest condolences to his entire and loving family. Our deep condolences also go to his patients, He gave a lot to everyone, and that is what we will remember him for.

Dear Nora, Kendra and Makenna:
What a dear man Ken was. He was never too busy to talk to me, to lend a hand, be kind to others.
The world was a better place because of him.
Robin is heartbroken. Ken was like a second father to her.
I am so sorry for your loss.
I will be there on Tuesday on Robin's behalf.
Love,
Cindy Halpern
