Mr. Cobb was born August 26, 1936 to the late Wiley Thurston Cobb and Nellz Hughes in Dothan, AL.  He served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War, where he was stationed in Germany with the Army Corps of Engineers. During his tenure in the Army, Mr. Cobb had a top secret clearance, involving money and also was a transporter of dynamite and explosives, which many considered to be a suicide mission. Mr. Cobb was retired from Civil Service at Ft. Benning after many years of service.  He was a Mason and enjoyed farming and coon hunting with his hounds, with which he won many awards. He often said that his best night’s sleep was on the hood of his truck listening to his hounds.
