Larry passed away peacefully on Friday, February 10, 2023, at his home after a lengthy illness. By his side was his wife, grandson, and two special friends Bonnie and Wendy. Also, his favorite nurse and street outlaw watching partner, Annette. Larry was a lifetime member of Lea Joyner Memorial Methodist Church.

Larry was born in Monroe on December 24, 1951, to Dorothy Cobb Neathery. Larry was raised in Delhi, LA, and graduated High School there. He worked all of his life starting as a young boy mowing lawns around Delhi. This is where his love of lawn care began. Larry moved to Monroe, LA, in the late 60’s where he held several jobs over the years. Then he opened his own business 30 years ago, Cobbs Custom Trucks. After working hard all of his life, he decided it was time to take it easy and retire in 2021.He loved life, adventure, and all things fast. From flying his own ultralight airplane to driving fast cars, boats, and motorcycles. Larry was a river rat and loved being on the water. He loved sports and played baseball and football as a young boy, also playing at Delhi High School, where he had to play both offense and defense because they did not have enough players. Larry played and coached Men’s modified softball where their team, Century Telephone, placed 2nd in the nation in Baltimore Maryland. He also coached and played on the Lea Joyner Men’s Team. Larry loved any kind of racing, dirt track, watching and attending NASCAR. He also enjoyed collecting old cars, attending and participating in car shows and going to Cruisin the Coast. If you wanted to know anything about a truck, car, motorcycle, boat, basically anything with a motor, Larry Cobb knew the answer. Larry also took pride in keeping his business and home perfectly manicured. He always said the most peace you will find is riding a John Deere, and he could mow grass for hours. Larry was a friend to all and would do anything for anyone. He was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, and friend. He will be missed so much. He is now with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and he has been healed. Thank you to Ascend Hospice, his wonderful nurse and friend, Annette, social worker Kristin and Chaplin Joe. They took wonderful care of Larry during these last 10 months. Also, thank you to Bonnie, Wendy, Jeff, Rev. Betty and our church family, for their love, prayers, and Sonic diet cokes. You all have been a blessing and a special thank you to Ayden for everything you do and have done to help take care of Larry. You have been the greatest blessing in your Papaw’s life.
