  1. Bertie & family, my heartfelt condolences go out to you in the loss of Billy. May God bless & comfort you during your time of grief. I’ve known Billy since our New Hope school days and always thought very highly of him and his Mom, Dad and siblings. He will be missed.

  2. Just now saw a memorial for Father’s Day in our Cleveland paper for Billy. My heart was saddened. I did not know he had passed away. I met Billy about 30+ years ago when I went to work for First Federal Savings and Loan here in Cleveland. He was our assistant branch manager. Billy was always fun to be around and was always nice and kind to me. He and his family were all sweet people. Over the last years I had lost touch with him. Blessings to the family and children. I miss Billy just knowing he is gone.

    • Gwen, thank you so much for your thoughtful note. I have just now found it.

      Billy was a wonderful person; he always put others’ needs before his own. Billy and I were married only five years; and, during that time, I never heard him complain about anything even though the last few months were very hard for him. He was always talking about people he worked with and never had anything but nice things to say about everyone. I’m sure he probably mentioned your name in his reminising but my memory with names is not very good.

      Thank you again for your comments.

      Bertie Cobb
