Edwin Chandler ‘Eddie’ Cobb

HINTON — Edwin Chandler Cobb, “Eddie,” 95, of Hinton, passed away peacefully on Monday, April 22, 2013, at Heartland of Beckley after a short illness.

Eddie was born on April 9, 1918, to the late Richard and Berma L. Cobb and had lived his entire life in Summers County. Also pre-deceasing Eddie were his brothers Richard “Dick” and Frank, and his sister, Kittie.

His five children survive him: John and Frank (Debbie) of St. Louis, MO; daughter Marlene (Tony) of Chicago, IL, Teresa (Jeff) of Hinton, WV, and Sally (Randy) of Williamsburg, VA. Six grandchildren also survive him: Crystal, Kaylee, Emilia, Jeffrey, Christopher, and Lakin.

Eddie was an avid fisherman and hunter and a proud veteran serving as a corporal in the 36th Armored Infantry in the European Theater during WWII. He was retired from the C&O Railroad after more than 30 years of service. He was a Methodist, VFW Commander, and a Mason for 60 years.

The family would like to express their sincere thanks to the loving and caring staff at Heartland of Beckley who took such good care of our dad for the past five years, and to Pivont Funeral Home for their care and help during this difficult time.

Funeral services will be held at 2 p.m. Thursday, April 25, 2013, at Pivont Funeral Home Chapel in Hinton, with Rev. David Thompson of the Hinton United Methodist Church officiating. Burial with Masonic Graveside Rites will follow in Restwood Memorial Gardens in Hinton.
