Fred William Cobb died Saturday evening, Jan. 13, 2007, in St. James Healthcare. He was born in Butte on Feb. 3, 1927, to Fred and Martha (Gibson) Cobb and attended Butte Schools. Fred enlisted in the U.S. Navy at the age of 17 and served on the destroyer, USS Gregory. He served in the Navy from 1944 until 1946, when he returned to Butte. On Aug. 16, 1947, he and Ruth "Gussie" Gustafson were married in Butte and she preceded him in death on March 23, 1990.

Fred worked for the Union Pacific Railroad for 46 years and served as Chief at the Race Track Volunteer Fire Department. He belonged to and was Past Commander of V.F.W. Post No. 3831 in Pony, belonged to the Order of Cooties, Pup Tent No. 24 in Pony, the American Legion, Silver Bow Post No. 1 in Butte, and the United Veterans Council in Butte. He enjoyed fishing, ice fishing, camping, snowmobiling and four wheeling, but most of all was a loving father. He was the family care giver, tending to several family members during times of illness.
