He touched countless lives, and his legacy will live on through the Granger Cobb Institute for Senior Living.

“Throughout my career, I have been exposed to many types of leaders. I have come to believe the greatest leaders are born that way. It is in their DNA. If you ever met or spent time with Granger you know he is one of those individuals who had that special leadership ‘gene.’ It is hard to articulate what actually made him such an incredible leader. …It was simply his being.”

“Granger touched people deeply. He knew that trusting them, and supporting them with the best operational practices were essential. I loved working with him and love extending his legacy through education.”

“It was truly an honor to have Argentum launch his legacy program, I hope the next generation of senior living providers have his heart and spirit.”
