Walter Frank Cobb Obituary
WALTER FRANK COBB Walter was born in Quincy, Mass., on Jan. 11, 1933. At 18 he joined the Air Force and headed west. He spent the next 61 years in California, where he died on Sept. 22, 2012 at the age of 79, surrounded by his family. He graduated from San Diego State University, passed the CPA exam, and started his accounting career in El Centro, CA in 1964. He then moved to Hemet, CA, where he practiced for over 20 years, focusing on taxes, bookkeeping and estate planning. During these years he was active in the Society of CA Accountants, becoming State President 1986-1987. In 1987 he moved to Rancho Bernardo where he continued practicing until his death. He always said, "I will work as long as I have my health." He loved the San Diego Padres, sailing, his family, his grandchildren, and music of all kinds: including the symphony, the Pops, Musicals, Opera and Jazz. Because of his love of music, he founded the Santa Ana Music Boosters non-profit foundation in 2006 to support music for underprivileged kids in Santa Ana, where his two daughters work. Walter is survived by his wife, Rosalie; his children, Kathy (Greg), Tim (Lisa), Steve (Chelle), and Laurie, and his grandchildren Rene, Chris (Jenny), Adam and Caitlin, and his sister Billie.
