PORT LEYDEN- Joseph A. Cobb, 74, of Elm Street, went home to be with the Lord on Thursday, August 31, 2023 at the Lewis County Hospital, Lowville.
Joseph is survived by three daughters and several grandchildren, Bethany and (Daniel) Slifka; Daniel Jr. and Daniel III of Chase Lake, Janis Cobb and her fiancé Aaron Hirschey; Dylan Stinebrickner, Gabriel Stinebrickner, Chloe and Rick Smith, and Calder Smith, Jonathan, Emma, Carter, and Alex Hirschey of Port Leyden; Brenda and (Ian) Brucker, Marlysa and Shane Rogers, Brady and Pria Rogers, Jacob Galarneau, Kaitlyn Brucker and Ruby Brucker of Holland Patent; Michael and Jessica Cobb, Greyson and Axel Cobb, Justin Cobb and Joseph, Jaymis, and Amara Cobb; Naythan and Jenna Cobb; Andrew Cobb of Glenfield; his life-long friend Burg (Bucky) Spann; his siblings, Charles (Bonnie) Cobb of Chase Lake, Lester (Deborah) Cobb of Glenfield, Patricia Watson and her companion, Ronald Grandjean of Adams, Rodney Cobb of Glenfield, Tina (John) Szucs of Greig, Lee (Sundena) Cobb of Glenfield, Donna (David) Dicob of Glenfield; several aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins. He is predeceased by his beloved Bonnie; his son, Joseph William Cobb; a sister and brother in-law, Linda and Ronald Buote; a niece, and three great nieces, Aleesha and Paislee Cobb, Shelby and Kiara Cobb; and an infant sister, Joanne Cobb.
Joseph was born on November 30, 1948 in Lowville, NY, a son of the late Elmer Fred and Ruth Lillian Kriwox Cobb. He attended General Martin School and as a young lad started his working career to help support his family. He married Bonnie Lou Edick on April 20, 1968 in Glenfield. He began his career in road construction in the 1970’s paving throughout the North Country and later in Florida. Paving the Northway for the 1980’s Winter Olympics was an accomplishment he held dear. This is where he set the state record for laying down the most blacktop in a 24-hour period in New York State. To this day he still holds that record. Another highlight of his career was that he was chosen to pave the New York State Capitol. He continued his career in road construction after moving to Florida. In May of 2020, Joe moved home to Lewis County to be near his daughters and grand-children.
Throughout his life he enjoyed trapping, fishing, and hunting with friends and family. He also enjoyed dancing and country music. During his retirement he began to establish his vast vinyl record collection (because nothing sounds better than dropping a needle on vinyl.)
The family would like to extend their most sincerest gratitude to the staff of the Lewis County Health System, who truly treated us like family.
