Obituary for Douglas E. Cobb

Douglas E. Cobb of Peoria, Illinois passed away May 28th, 2021 at OSF Richard L. Owens Hospice Home where he was cared for lovingly.

Doug was born December 12, 1955 in Lake City, Iowa. He is survived by his wife Patty (Callahan) Cobb, mother Melva, two siblings, as well as many in-laws, nieces and nephews (who affectionately called him ‘Uncle Buck’).

Doug graduated from the University of Illinois with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. He was employed by Caterpillar for 33 years. With early retirement he was able to spend nine winters in Florida where he enjoyed playing guitar, singing with friends and tinkering in his garage.

An avid golfer, woodworker and tool collector, Doug kept busy with his many hobbies. He was a Birdie Chaser (golfing group), member of The Old Man’s Club (woodworkers) and Lloyd’s Breakfast Club (CAT buddies).

Doug was a big guy with a soft heart; his warm personality and quick wit were a treasure to those who knew him. He rarely met a person or a tool he didn’t like.

Thank you to the caring staff at Unity Point, 7 Hamilton. Donations can be made to OSF Richard L. Owens Hospice Home.

A private service will be held at a later date.

Tributes and condolences may be submitted to
