Brendan Cobb

AGE: 33 • Wilmington

Brendan Maloney Cobb went to heaven on short notice Friday, October 20.

Brendan provided much light, warmth and humor to family and close friends. He could make you laugh with his quick wit as well as show sincere, perceptive empathy for others. When 3-year old Brendan thought his grandfather, BB, was only getting a cupcake for his 65th birthday, Brendan lobbied loudly for a "real" cake on BB's behalf. Brendan gave a toast/roast at his brother Bill's wedding that would be a hit late night TV monologue. Brendan knew how to win the best uncle contest with his nephew by carrying Macklin on his shoulders or giving him the coolest, biggest truck for Christmas.

Brendan loves his wife Katy and enjoyed their new home together preparing the swimming pool, grilling on the deck and hiking in the wooded park behind them. Brendan liked playing golf with his dad and brother. When his game was on, pars or better were possible on every hole. When his game was off, Brendan's good nature was still great company. When playing Frisbee golf with Katy's dad, James, Brendan made it fun no matter where the disk landed.

Brendan graduated from Wilmington University with a finance degree and had a successful career as a senior accountant. Brendan was a good neighbor at work or at home lending a hand to anyone who needed it often without being asked.

There is so much more to Brendan's life that can be captured in so few words. He has lived a full, good life.

Brendan is succeeded in life by his father (Barry), his mother (Rosemary), wife (Katy), brother (Bill) and sister-in-law (Christie). He is also survived by loving grandparents, Vincent and Elizabeth Sullivan, uncles, aunts, cousins, nieces and nephews.

A memorial service will be celebrated on October 27, 4:00 PM at Mountain Christian Church, 1824 Mountain Rd., Joppa, MD 21085. In lieu of flowers, please consider a contribution to atTAck Addiction, P.O. Box 36, Bear, DE 19701.

I had the pleasure of gaining Brendan as a friend and neighbor. Brendan and I hit it off on the day he moved in. He was the perfect mix of friend. He encouraged me when I was down, joked me when I messed up, and helped me ANY time I needed or asked.

One thing that stands out for me is when I had a work event that required me to play golf...I never played before and without hesitation Brendan taught me how to play as well as let me use his clubs! I was asked back over three times that year. He would say that it was just natural for me but without him I would have been embarrassed.

My wife loved that I had Brendan right across the street, she saw that he was someone I just clicked with. I was able to talk to him about everything and knew I wasn't being judged. He was so genuine.

When I was alone I knew I could call him and he would do anything with me because he understood me so well. We would walk the neighborhood and talk about how much he liked Katy's dad or what was going on at work and for that time I would forget everything stressful and just have a great time with a great friend.

He bought a flashlight that had a Taser on the back side for Katy and he wanted to see if it was strong enough so like every wise men we decided to agree and try it on each other...

These are the things that I will miss the most about him besides his goofy laugh and late night conversations about the galaxy.

I love you man. I hope you felt how much you meant to me.
