Ronald Cobb
Ronald “Bruce” Cobb, 70, peacefully passed away on 8/12/2021 after a long decline in his health.  For Bruce; His passing was a welcomed event he patiently waited for.  So we rejoice with him that he’s no longer held down by his broken body. 
 
Bruce was born in Teague, Texas on June 4, 1951 to Alvis Jr. and Marilyn Cobb.  Raised in Pasadena Texas where He graduated from Sam Rayburn High School.  Married Susan Richards and had a son; John Zachariah. He joined the Air Force and stationed in Tucson Arizona.  As a civilian, he moved back to Texas and began a long term employ-ment with Chevron as an Operator & volunteer Chemical Firefighter until his retirement in 2007.   
     
He studied Aviation Science at San Jacinto College and shortly after, joined the Civil Air Patrol as a side job.  Later; He developed an interest in real estate investments and bought a small portfolio of multi-family units which he managed himself.  And as if his plate was not full enough; he bought his favorite local neighborhood bar, Bogarts.    
 
Aside from all the things he enjoyed doing in life; it was his love of riding his chopper motorcycle that gave him the most pleasure and sense of belonging.  His love of riding began as a teenager and remained a strong passion his entire life.   
 
His intentions to do some Treasure Hunting, Gold Panning, and searching for Big Foot were next on his bucket list.  Bruce NEVER wanted to stop and sit still… we must be-lieve he is happy to be free from the body that held him still.  He’ll Always be remem-bered for his love of adventure, a music lover, exploring the possibilities, knowledgeable in many subjects, his physical strength, and his deep love for his family.  
 
He is survived by son; Zach Cobb, granddaughter; Ava Cobb, sisters; Teresa Warren and Cathy Cobb, sister-in law; Martha Cobb, and numerous cousins, nieces and nephew.   He was proceeded in death by his father and mother, and older brother; Paul David which he is now happy to be with again. 
 
Bruce did not want a memorial service; only a graveside gathering with his loved ones.  For any loved one wishing to attend; our gathering and his Military Honors will be held on Monday, Sept 13th @ 1:30 PM at Houston National Cemetery, 10410 Veterans Me-morial Drive, Houston 77038.
