Kurtis Arthur Cobbett

He was born on Thanksgiving Day, 1960 in ABQ, NM. He was adopted at birth by Marian and Jack Cobbett (both deceased). Kurt died on Dec. 26, 2015 in Napa, CA. He was 55. He attended Zuni Elementary School and Albuq. Academy. While at Albuq. Academy he studied classical guitar and swam on the Swim Team where he lettered. After high school he briefly worked at his grandfather's lumber yard and hardware store, Ange Builder's Supply, did a little house framing with his friend Woody and did some concrete work with his Uncle Ed. Kurt then attended Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, NY. Upon returning to NM he became involved in the wine business which led him to CA where he worked at the Robert Mondavl Winery for 17 years. In his travels Kurt visited Europe, South America and New Zealand.

Kurt was the best brother to Kim and a loving uncle to Kelly, who he adored. He has friends on both coasts and most states in between, especially here in NM.

He was a gourmet cook and a connoisseur of wine and he could make a mess like no other. He was greatly loved and will be greatly missed.

A memorial service will be announced at a later date. Please send any condolences and or memories or stories of Kurt to:

Kelly and Kim Cobbett
