The last photo of Carroll Cobbs taken on Dec. 25, 2007 with his wife, son and family
Carroll Cobbs passed away on January 18, 2008 after a recent illness.
Mr. Cobbs formerly worked as Radiation Health Physicist for the University of Washington while completing his Master’s in Bioengineering, and later briefly for the WA State Department of Radiological Health.
He was working on a Ph.D. in Psychology at Saybrook Graduate School and Research Center. The foci of his doctoral studies at Saybrook were Complimentary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) and Transpersonal Psychology as utilized in spiritual and physical healing processes.
On May 14, 2007, Mr. Cobbs wrote a Guest Entry for the Yelm Community Blog about the potential health affects for those in close proximity to cell tower radiation on a regular basis. The story was penned in response to a cell tower proposal for the Clearwood residential Community outside of Yelm.
Mr. Cobbs was an associate of Dr. Henry Lai at the University of Washington. Dr. Lai is the acclaimed UW Research Professor noted for his work on the biological effects of electromagnetic fields. Together, they provided a very restrictive test plan for cell providers in San Juan County, WA. called “The Cobbs Protocol”. While working briefly for the Washington State agency for radiological health, that agency bypassed the Cobbs Protocol and instead adopted the federal position for cell providers, which states there is no legal or legislative challenge which can be mounted against them.
Mr. Cobbs is survived by his wife Erika Winter Cobbs, a son who recently served in the U. S. military in the Middle East, daughter-in-law, grandson, two daughters from a previous marriage and a step-daughter. He was a resident of Rainier.
Carroll’s daughter Adrienne 23, Amy (step-daughter) 18, & daughter Vanessa
Memorial information is pending.
We wish Carroll well on his next adventures!
