Kenai resident Tony Allen Cobb, 49, died Friday, June 25, 2010, at Providence Alaska Medical Center in Anchorage.
Memorial services will be held at 2 p.m. Wednesday, June 30, at First Baptist Church, Mile 12 Kenai Spur Highway. Pastor Robin Davis will officiate.
Mr. Cobb was born June 19, 1961 in Kalamath Falls, Ore. He moved to Kenai in 1995 and worked for Godfathers Pizza, Primo Pizza and Pizza Boys.
He was a member of the First Baptist Church and loved reading, camping and going on hikes.
"Whenever my dad would start on a new Bible study with us, he would tell us that as a Christian father, his top priority was to lead each of his children to Jesus Christ. He not only told us about Christ, but lived a kind and gentle life that reflected God's love and was an example for Christ-likeness that we would be remiss not to follow. His excitement for God's word and learning from it was wonderful and refreshed by spirit every day," his daughter Nikki, said.
"Whenever I went to him for counsel, he would take me straight to the Word of God. I admired him for being a very Godly man. His testimony touched my life," his daughter Charla, said.
"He loved me and never stopped loving me, despite my very many mistakes. He showed God's love with his patience and his faith. I will miss him and will always love him. Goodbye dad," his son Josh said.
Mr. Cobb was preceded in death by his wife, Cynthia Cobb.
He is survived by his children, Joshua, Nicole, Elias, Charla, Kendra and Jesse Cobb all of Kenai; mother, Joyce Meyer of Klamath Falls; brother, Timothy E. Cobb of Klamath Falls; and sisters, Teresa Lathrop of Medford, Ore. and Tammy Hardenbrook of Klamath Falls.
