William Tyson Cobb, a devoted and loving husband, father, brother, uncle, and friend, went home to be with Jesus on Monday, March 21, 2022, at age 62 where he was greeted by a host of witnesses and friends as well as his parents Roland and Vesta Cobb, and his sister Nancy Paulette Capps, who went to be with Jesus before him.
Ty was born in El Paso, Texas to Roland and Vesta Cobb on December 16, 1959. After graduating salutatorian from Irvin High School in El Paso, he attended Lubbock Christian University, where he graduated valedictorian with a degree in accounting and a degree in anatomy and physiology. While attending LCU he was a valued member of a traveling music group called Hard Travelers, but more importantly while at LCU he met and fell in love with his beloved wife Charla Louise Cox. He also graduated valedictorian from Parker College of Chiropractic in Dallas, Texas with a Doctorate in Chiropractic. After moving back to Amarillo, Ty and Charla completed their family with the blessing of a daughter, Jessica Nichole – “Nikki”, the light of Ty’s life.
Ty had a profound effect on all those who were blessed to know him. Whether during his time traveling across the country as a Hard Traveler or over the last few years through his punny Facebook post or through his heartfelt post where he graciously shared his journey into discovering God’s abundant Grace. We were all blessed by the life of this humorous yet incredibly wise man who passionately pursued Jesus. We will deeply miss him.
Ty Cobb is survived by his wife Charla Louise Cobb, his daughter Jessica Nichole Cobb; brother and sister-in-law Edward and Ginger Cox, and Ernest and Chellie Cox; nieces Kristi DeVilbis and husband Rick. Terri Karlin and husband Jeff, Tonya Thompson and husband Lorenzo, Rachael Bratten, and Candace Gonzalez and husband Joey, Katie Cox, and Kellie Cox; nephews Joshua Cox and wife Holly, Jacob Cox and wife Whitney and Johnny Cox.
