Lewis Granger Cobb

Granger Cobb, age 55, passed away on Tuesday evening, September 22, 2015, at his home in Seattle after an inspiring and courageous battle with cancer. Granger was a pioneer of the senior living movement, starting Cobbco, Inc. in 1989 with his wife, Tina, and ultimately becoming president and CEO of Emeritus Senior Living. One of his final great achievements was his success in merging Emeritus into Brookdale Senior Living a little over a year ago. Granger had an infectious smile, tremendous spirit and unyielding optimism until his final day. He was proud to serve as a mentor and role model to many aspiring leaders, in his personal and professional life. In his own words, "I lived the most blessed life imaginable with a wonderfully loving family, incredible friends, and an exceptionally fulfilling career."

He is survived by his wife of 31 years, Tina; daughters Caitlin and Cassandra; father, Dr. Earl Lewis; mother, Letty; sisters Missy Hull, Catherine Potdevin, and Melanie Werdel; and brother Bryson.
