Jerry Don Cobb

Jerry Don Cobb lost his long battle with cancer just short of his 74th birthday peacefully at home surrounded by family. Jerry was born March 20, 1950 in Clayton, New Mexico to Cecil and Celia Cobb. He grew up in Keyes, Oklahoma with his sister Bonnie, brothers Tom, Rocky, and Mickey. Jerry started driving a John Deere tractor at age 10, helping with plowing and planting grain. He kept busy in high school playing football, playing the clarinet and helping his dad with the watering, feeding, and doctoring of cattle. He also worked for the Wiesbart Cattle Company near Keyes, where there was always work with cattle, windmills to maintain, fences to build, and branding. 

He graduated from Keyes High School in 1968 and went to Panhandle State College in Goodwell, Oklahoma. Jerry moved to Byers, Colorado in the early 1970’s where he coached Little League baseball, raised greyhounds, worked as an auto mechanic and in the oil fields for Amoco Production Company.
