Upon graduation from Brockton High School, Class of 1959, Don honorably served his country in the US Air Force during the Vietnam War. After his military service, Don worked initially for Hercules Chemical Co., then US Pipe and Foundry Company, both in Burlington. He then worked for Rohm and Haas Chemical Company as an electrician for many years until his retirement. While at Rohm and Haas, he served on their Fire Response Unit. That spirit of service and love of firefighting led Don to a long volunteer career with the Neptune Hose Co. No. 5 in Burlington City.

While active, he served as a Trustee and Treasurer and as Assistant Engineer and Chief Engineer for many years. He also served as Vice President and President of the Burlington City Exempt Fireman’s Association and as a delegate, President and Trustee of the Burlington County Firefighters Association and as an Executive Committeeman to the Burlington County Exempt Fireman’s Association. In his spare time, Don enjoyed watching NASCAR races and he was an avid fan of the Boston Red Sox. He was predeceased by his parents, Lowell C. and Helen Rae (nee Campbell) Cobb and his brother Lee Cobb. Don is survived by his wife Agnes (nee Lewandowski), his children; Donald, Jr., Judith, Jane and Jennifer, his grandchildren; Callysta, Maximus, Mateo, Andrew and Ethan, his brother Lowell C.
