Robert Coben

Obituary of Robert Coben

Robert Sinclair Coben caught the last train out of the station on December 26, 2017, born August 15, 1930 in Moline, IL. Bob was beloved by his family and known in the community for his giving nature while running his Pure Oil/Union 76 service stations in the area for 37 years. He was a long time Copley resident. After retirement he delivered for Semco Auto Parts, which he did until March of 2017. Never one to sit around, he enjoyed his boat up on Lake Erie, model train display building, rail road insulator collecting, crafting various projects in his workshop, and a great conversation over a relaxing drink whenever he got the chance.

He is survived by his wife: Betty (Siel) Coben; children: Kimberly (Rex) White, Craig (Nancy), Eric (Elena), Karl (Sue); grandchildren: Jennifer, Kendel, Eric Jr, Collin, Ethan, Kyle, and Brian; and sisters Gwen Loucks and Dorothy Lee Ann Coben (deceased).

A celebration of his life will be held on January 13th from 2-4 pm at St. George Antiochian Church Fellowship Hall, 3204 Ridgewood Rd Fairlawn. Please come share with his family and friends.
