Obituary Overview

Mr. Frank Elliott Cobb


Passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family on Saturday, July 14, 2018 in his 96th year. Beloved husband of Dorothy Leah and dear father of Kenneth (Myrna) Cobb and father-in-law of Brenda Cobb.   Loving grandfather to Leah, Bradley, Blair (Amanda), Graham (Melissa), Martin and Natalie and six great grandchildren. Survived by brothers Jim and Phillip. Predeceased by his son Raymond Cobb (Brenda), sisters Hazel, Margaret, Beryl, Esther, Lily, Rose and brothers Richard and Fred. Left to mourn his loss are numerous family members and friends.

Frank proudly served in the Canadian Military during WW2. Soon after WW2 ended, Frank met Dorothy and they were married in 1951. Frank and Dorothy made their first home at Clappison Corners where their two sons Ray and Ken were born. In 1960, they built a new home on Arkell Road in Guelph where they lived until 1990 when they moved to Huntsville. After nineteen years in Huntsville, Frank and Dorothy returned to Guelph and shared a home with Ken and Myrna. For the past two years, Frank has required additional nursing care and moved into Wellington Terrace. There he received loving and compassionate care until the end. We are forever grateful to the wonderful staff at Wellington Terrace for all of their love, compassion and competent care.
