Kurt Cobb

Prior to the opening of Cobb's Funeral Home in 2007, he worked with funeral homes in Riverview, Moncton, and Petitcodiac. A strong believer in continuing education, Kurt received his life insurance license in 2015 and later became a certified Life Celebrant in 2019. These designations allow him to better serve the families and communities we care about. When not at the office, he enjoys spending time with family and friends, as well as time at the golf course or the beach.

Since the funeral home opened, she has worked alongside Kurt while maintaining her over thirty-year career in customer service and retail. In 2018 as demands grew, she left her previous employment to focus completely on the needs of the families the funeral home serves. In her spare time, she can often be seen walking the newest member of the Cobb family, Maggie, or playing a little golf.

Being a Riverview native he was given the opportunity to work with Kurt in 2018 and has been a valued part of the team ever since then. Outside of work Mike can usually be found in various spots around Riverview or enjoying his time at home mowing his lawn.
