Obituary

Mr. Sloan “Doug” Douglas Cobb, Jr., husband, father, and grandfather, entered fully into the presence of our Lord on Tuesday, May 23, 2023 surrounded by his family.  He was 85.

Doug was born on February 13th, 1938 in York County. He was the son of the late Sloan Douglas Cobb, Sr. and Opal Whitesides Cobb. He was a veteran of the US Army National Guard and a member of Olivet Presbyterian Church where he served as a Deacon and Sunday School teacher.

Doug is survived by the love of his life of 62 years, Goldean Arnold Cobb, whom he met when they were both working for the FBI in Washington, D.C. After moving back to South Carolina, Doug continued his education, graduated with honors, and pursued a career in Industrial Engineering Technology. He had a lifelong passion for fixing things and solving electrical and technical problems. He once rebuilt a 1930 Ford Model A from nothing but a rusted frame.

 After retiring from a 38 year career at Bowater, Inc., he loved spending time restoring antique engines and tractors. He started an annual Antique Engine and Tractor Show benefitting the local Volunteer Fire Department that has continued for 23 years and draws collectors and vendors from all over the country.  He was also a trained and certified EMT.

Doug leaves behind a legacy that will be forever etched in our hearts. He was a faithful servant of God and a devoted husband, father and grandfather. It has been said that when his children were young, he was seen every single day outside playing with them.  He exemplified what it means to be a Godly husband and father.

In his later years, his grandchildren were his greatest source of pride and joy.  He was a role model and set the example for how to live life well. Doug was a man of unwavering faith and profound wisdom and will be deeply missed.

In addition to his loving wife Goldean Cobb, Doug is survived by his daughter, Sandy Baron and her husband Phillip; his son, Randy Cobb; and his grandchildren, Kiersten Baisden and Will Baisden. He is also survived by his sister, Joanne Marshall (Barnes) and his brother, Mike Cobb (Denise).

In addition to his parents, Doug was preceded in death by his sister, Maxine Lowrance.

A memorial service celebrating Doug’s life will be held at 2 pm on Friday, May 26th, 2023 at Olivet Presbyterian Church, 159 Church St. McConnells, SC 29726. The family will receive friends at the church following the memorial service.
