Don Kobs

September 19, 1935 — April 22, 2017

Don Duke Kobs died peacefully with his wife and children by his side in Backus, MN, on April 22, 2017, at the age of 81. Don is survived by his wife, Kathy; daughter, Kris; son Kurt, daughter-in-law, Ginger and their son, Hunter; grandson, Kurt; grand-daughter-in-law, Angie; and great grandchildren, Audrina and Troy.

Don came to his beloved place on the lake with his mom and dad at age 10. He and his wife Kathy moved from their home in Washington in 1997 to the lake and remain there to this day.

Don's family plans to have a celebration of his life at a later date. If you would like to memorialize him, please send donations in Don's name to the following organization of your choice:

Paws and Claws at 2949 State Hwy 371 NW, PO BOX 175, Hackensack, MN 56452

Alzheimer's Association at 225 N. Michigan Ave, Chicago IL 60601 or online at

St. Croix Hospice Support Foundation at 7200 Hudson Blvd N., S 230, Oakdale MN 55128

The family would like to give their endless gratitude to all of Don's wonderful "girlfriends" who did much more than care for him at Dignity & Grace.
