Harry Trip Passes Away

Reading time ( words)

Industry veteran Harry Trip, a long-time employee at Cobar—a Balver Zinn company—has passed away.

His death was sudden and unexpected, but his loved ones can draw comfort from the fact that he did not suffer. Harry had survived cancer and recovered from treatment many years ago.

Harry had been at Cobar for more than 20 years, and had a lot of involvement with the formulation and testing of Cobar products that are currently still being sold globally. He was a problem solver and a true friend to all its customers, always attending personally to any line issues. Even up to the last week, he was still visiting customers and solving problems.

At work, Harry was always part of the team, but a bit of a maverick—trying different things away from R&D to make the process go quicker and help customers—most of the time not even telling his bosses until his process was well underway. Nine times out of 10, he was very successful at making minor changes that made a big difference.

Harry was a husband, a father, and a grandfather. He was actually planning to retire at the end of this year to spend more time with his wife and family.

Harry will be missed greatly, and his shoes at Cobar will be almost be impossible to fill.
