PRINCETON, LA - Mr. Willie A. Cobb, Sr. was born on April 8, 1941 in Natchitoches Parish
and went to be with his Heavenly Father on May 2, 2011 following a sudden illness.
Willie went into business for himself in 1988 being the proud owner of J & W Steel Erectors Inc. in Bossier City, LA. Willie took pride in his work, as well as he did his family and friends. If you knew Willie then you know he did not meet a stranger and there was not a soul on this earth he would not help if you needed it. You could get it from him if it was possible, even if it meant the shirt off his back. Most people recall how Willie had time for the other person and put them first, therefore by exercising patience, strength and humility.
Willie was preceded in death by his mother, Susie M. Price Head; father, Leo Cleve Cobb; step mother, Alma Grace Cobb; aunt, Versielee Marie Clark (Sister Bert); two grandsons, Steven D. Lepp, Chayton Lane Lepp, and great grandson, Baxley Reese Cobb
