Twenty seven years ago when Dogan Cobb joined the board of directors of Levy Association for Retarded Citizens, he told LARC Executive Director Betty Walker, then new to the job, that he'd stay in his job as long as she stayed in hers.
Last Wednesday, Cobb reluctantly broke his promise, retiring from the board. Walker said she'd forgive him – after all, Cobb is 98 years old.
“He's a good man,” she said.
“In 27 years, we never had a cross word between us.”
