Wade Douglas Cobb was born on November 15, 1947, in Cherokee County, Alabama to Rexie Paul and Rose Lee (Green) Cobb. Wade grew up in Alabama where he graduated high school and went on to attend college for applied sciences. He joined the United States Air Force in 1967, and faithfully served his country for over 20 years. He married his lifetime sweetheart, Martha Ann Nunnley on August 23, 1969, in Ohatchee, Alabama and to this union two sons were born, Gary and Randy. As a military family Wade and Martha landed in Altus where they made their home and raised their boys.
