              Merle Hilton Cobb

 

 

NEWPORT NEWS - Merle Hilton Cobb, only son of Raleigh and Millie, left this world December 11, 2016 to be with them in the next.

Born in 1938, he was a lifelong Peninsula resident.

He was a proud Typhoon where he drummed in the marching band for five years.

He retired after forty-one years at the Newport News Shipyard.

He is survived by his wife, Joan of fifty-five years; his three children, Catherine, Robin, and Matthew; along with six granddaughters and two great-granddaughters.

 

 
 

 


The family will hold a small graveside service.

The family asks that expressions of sympathy be made in his name to your favorite cause in lieu of flowers.

Arrangements are in the care of Peninsula Funeral Home. View and post condolences on our online guestbook at dailypress.com/guestbooks.

Shall We Gather at the River

Words and Music by Rev. Robert Lowry (1826-1899)
 

 Shall we gather at the river,
Where bright angel feet have trod;
With its crystal tide forever
Flowing by the throne of God?

Chorus

Yes, we'll gather at the river,
The beautiful, the beautiful river;
Gather with the saints at the river
That flows by the throne of God.

On the margin of the river,
Washing up its silver spray,
We will walk and worship ever,
All the happy golden day.

Chorus

Ere we reach the shining river,
Lay we every burden down;
Grace our spirits will deliver,
And provide a robe and crown.

Chorus

Soon we'll reach the shining river,
Soon our pilgrimage will cease,
Soon our happy hearts will quiver
With the melody of peace.
