Beloved husband, father, son, brother, uncle, godfather and dear friend David A. Cobb, 58, of Darien passed away Thursday, March 31.
David was born on December 2, 1963 to Ralph and Nancy Cobb in Oradell, New Jersey. He graduated from Pascack Hills High School in Montvale, New Jersey in 1982.
He went on to study business and economics at Lehigh University, where he was a lifelong active member of Theta Delta Chi fraternity. He earned an MBA in 1995 and an MSc in 2014, both from NYU Leonard Stern School of Business.
After graduating from Lehigh, he began his career in finance at Standard and Poor’s and later held positions at Deutsche Bank, Chubb Financial and Babson Capital. He was also an instructor at the Columbia University School of Professional Studies.
In 1997, he met Lauri Scoran, and they married in 2000 in Gleneagles, Scotland. Never happier than being surrounded by family and friends with any sporting event on television and a cocktail in hand, David loved golf, dogs, college football, Sunday football “Funday “with the Giants (even when they haven’t won), the trips, more golf, the Rangers and the Yankees (and even more golf).
Additionally, he loved cars (and tires) of all kinds, was a wine and cigar aficionado, a watch collector, and drank fine bourbons while entertaining his family and friends.
David is survived by his wife, Lauri; two daughters, Bridget and Ava, and their beloved rescue dog Jenny. David also leaves behind his parents, Ralph and Nancy; brother, Douglas and his wife, Peggy; sister, Debra; cousin, JoAnn Johnson and her husband, George; cousin, Dwight Murren; cousin, Kathy Murren; and an abundance of loving nieces, nephews and close friends.
A memorial service was held April 9, 2022. The family requests that donations be made in David’s memory to New York Pet Rescue at PO Box 393, Larchmont, NY 10538 or to the Greater Pennsylvania Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association, PO Box 96011, Washington, DC 20090-6011.
