Clarence Milo Cobb was born July 5, 1920 at rural North English, the son of S.S. (Vanus) and Lila Hardy Carter Cobb.  Milo attended country school but left school to work on the family farm.  Following the death of his father, when Milo was sixteen, he took responsibility for helping his widowed mother, instilling in him a strong work ethic that lasted his entire life. 
On March 8, 1943 he married Nellie Van Dee at Armah Catholic Church, rural North English.  At age 40, Milo uprooted his family and moved to Vinton to become a Moorman Feed Salesman for this area, retiring in 1985.  He was a longtime member of St. Mary Catholic church in Vinton and was active in the Knights of Columbus.  Milo enjoyed playing cards, fishing, Cubs baseball, gardening, golf and the Tuesday morning Cedarview coffee group but his favorite activity was spending time with family and following his grandkids’ sports and activities.
Milo is survived by his wife of 72 years, Nellie, Vinton; five children, Janet (Dr. Alan) Woodhouse, Vinton; Eldron (Chris) Cobb, Atlanta, GA; Chris Galligan, Cedar Rapids; Theresa (David) Jones, Tampa, FL and Holly (David) Roseberg, Columbia, MO; 12 grandchildren; 14 3/4 great grandchildren; brother, Glen (Hazel) Cobb, North English and several nieces and nephews. 
He was preceded in death by his parents; son James Vincent; four brothers, Pat Carter, Estill, Ray and Ty Cobb and two sisters, Mickie Ballard and Aline Wallace. 
In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund has been established.
Van Steenhuyse-Russell Funeral Home is caring for Milo and his family.  Condolences may be left at www.vsrfh.com.
The family would like to express their sincere thanks to the staff at Virginia Gay Hospital and Hospice of Mercy for their loving care and concern.
