David R. Cobb, 68, of Enfield and Suffield, was born into a loving family on August 25, 1952 in Louisville, KY, son of the late Russell and Norma (Nissen) Cobb and later joined by a sister, ChrisAnne. Russell Cobb’s jobs had the family move many times and David experienced much early on.
He participated in the usual sports, but a chance trip to Lime Rock Park sparked his interest like nothing before. He became a member of the Sports Club of America in 1973. This enabled him to be a race worker traveling all over the U.S. and Silverstone, U.K. He also found a true appreciation for nature and wildlife. He was a member of the ASPCA helping to promote changes through petitions and law changes.
He attended Suffield Academy, Alfred University where he earned a bachelor’s degree. Additionally, he earned an MBA from Syracuse University. He was employed as a Purchasing Agent with Hamilton Standard for many years.
David always hoped he was a good friend to all and has left a positive impact.
He is survived by his paternal aunt and uncle Dorinda and Joseph Pizone of Easton; three cousins Dorinda Lea Pizone of Narragansett, RI; Andrea Novia and her husband Michael of New Canaan; and Virginia Hull and her husband William and their children Matthew and Emily. David’s family would like to acknowledge Robin Zatony for her tremendous aid to David over the last year as well as his very best friends, Nancy Cordle and Phil Pizzoferrato for spending countless hours with David.
