TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Friends of Eliot Cobb, the man shot and killed Friday night, April 14, at La Encantada, describe him as kind, lighthearted, and laid back.

Cobb's dog sitter and landscaper stopped by his home in Oro Valley on Monday, April 17. The two of them said they've known Cobb for years and considered him more like an friend than a customer.

Glenda Weil, with Four Footed Fitness, said Cobb recently sold his business and he had big plans for the next phase of his life.

She said he would foster dogs until they found new homes but he occasionally wound up keeping them instead. Weil said Cobb was generous and cared for his pets, but now she's worried what will happen to his two Labrador mixes.

Weil said anyone interested in adopting the two dogs together should contact her at FourFootedFitness@gmail.com.

Cobb was 65 years old. His family is expected to arrive in Pima County this week. The restaurant where he was killed is expected to reopen at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, April 19, according to a spokeswoman for Firebirds Wood Fired Grill. She said it was closed out of respect of the victims' and their families.
