George Alfred Cobb

George Alfred Cobb, 82, of Concord, passed away on Sunday, April 19 at Atrium Health Cabarrus. Mr. Cobb will lie in state at Gordon Funeral Home of Mount Pleasant, Friday, April 24 from 10:00am - 4:00pm. During these times of limiting the numbers for social gatherings, the Cobb family respects your concerns of avoiding crowds and they welcome you to stop by Gordon Funeral Home during these hours. A private graveside service will be held at St. John’s Lutheran Church. A celebration honoring the life of George Cobb will be held at a later date. George was born in Iredell County on Jan. 14, 1938, to the late Stowe Cobb, Sr. and Evelyn Sweatt Cobb. He was preceded in death by his loving wife of 59 years, Linda Rinehardt Cobb who died in 2017. Siblings who preceded him in death are his brother, Stowe Cobb, Jr. and sister, Beverly Chisholm. George was a proud 1956 graduate of A.L. Brown High School and went on to serve in the National Guard for 10 years. George was the owner and face of George’s Trim Shop, and operated it for 56 years. He was passionate about sports and participated by coaching Little League baseball, Babe Ruth baseball and playing softball for his church team and for the Concord Jaycees. For over 20 years, he looked forward to his weekly Saturday golf matches with the same group of special friends. George also enjoyed watching golf, Carolina basketball and NASCAR. He was a diehard Dale Earnhardt fan. He was an active member of St. John’s Lutheran Church where he served on many committees and the church council. In addition to his family, few things gave George more pleasure than gardening and working in his yard. Most of all, George was a devoted husband, father and grandfather. His work ethic, compassion, and good humored sarcasm will be missed by all. Survivors include a son Steven G. Cobb, and a daughter, Beth C. Hawk and her husband Jim, all of Concord; a grandson, Alan Cobb of Cherryville and two granddaughters, Julianne and Lyndy Hawk of Concord. Also surviving are a brother, Phillip Cobb and a sister, Cindy Ross. Memorial contributions may be directed to St. John’s Lutheran Church, 100 St. John’s Church Road, Concord, 28025.

I met George back in the seventies when he put a convertible top on an old car I had. From then on, if there was automotive upholstery work to be done, George did it. Not only was George a craftsman and artisan, he was a fine person. Years ago, I took my 3 month old daughter with me to pick up some seats he was doing. From that day on, anytime I saw him, he asked about her. Rest in Peace my friend.

Mr. George and Ms.Linda were very special people. They always welcomed me with open arms. I worked with Ms. Linda for a short time but we always had a ball! Mr. George would be waiting for me to arrive then off he would go in his truck. He knew she was in good hands. Job well done Mr. George Rest In Peace and tell Ms. Linda hello! I will see you all again in heaven.

We will miss George and especially his waves as we head out the driveway. He and Linda were wonderful neighbors all these years. Gary and George enjoyed their guy visits. We always took a plate of our homemade Christmas cookies to the house and were welcomed with a huge, hungry smile. Rest In Peace, friend. Linda and Gary Bockover
