Michael Adam Cobb Obituary
Michael Adam Cobb transitioned from this earth on June 25, 2017, at the age of 52 surrounded by his loving family at home in Carpinteria. Born and raised in Burbank, Cobb (or Cobber) began a lifelong love affair with sports, playing for the Vikings and riding motorcycles at the early age of 6. By his teenage years, skateboarding and surfing began to tickle his fancy but he continued to excel and went on to become a star quarterback at Burbank High School. Michael graduated with honors from the school of real life and worked his tail off. After 20 years in the world of medical sales and management, his life turned a corner and he became the Sales Manager for Channel Islands Surfboards-a dream job where he used to say "work and play blur." Michael worked hard and played harder. Whether it was camping trips and riding motorcycles through the deserts of California with his dad and Uncle Duane or surf trips to Panama, Indonesia, Hawaii and his favorite, Fiji. Michael was an incredibly kind and generous soul. He always possessed the ability to turn a negative into a positive, and cared deeply about the environment and animals. Michael left behind his beloved wife, Delia, cat Xena and a trio of chihuahuas. An awesome son to Russell Cobb and Donna Ushkow, and loving brother to Patrice Mock. Michael leaves behind nieces, nephews and countless friends from all corners of the world. Donations can be made to: Sea Shepherd Conservation Society; Physician's Committee for Responsible Medicine; East Valley Animal Shelter; Santa Barbara Animal Rescue. The family will hold private memorial services in California and New York.
