LISTEN TO JACK HALL’S INTERVIEW WITH EPSD LT. JOHN GUDWER
A popular Escanaba radio host and well-known member of the emergency services and outdoors communities has died.
Tim Kobasic, who hosted the “Trails and Tales” radio program for 20 years, passed away on Sunday morning.
Kobasic also worked for Rampart EMS, and was a member of Delta County Emergency Operations Center.
He was member of the Michigan Trails Council, and an Escanaba City Council Member from 1982 to 1986.
Kobasic’s death has hit the Delta County law enforcement community hard. Escanaba Public Safety Lt. John Gudwer worked with Kobasic on many emergency scenes over the years.
“He was a great guy,” Gudwer said. “He was a great family guy and was involved in so many things. I worked with him a lot. Just a class act. He represented Rampart well. He represented the emergency services community well. He represented his family very well. A true loss to our community.”
Kobasic was 65 years old. Funeral arrangements were incomplete.
