Mr. Neil Waud Cocker
February 19, 1925 – July 11, 2018
Neil W. Cocker, 93, of Huntsville passed away early Wednesday July 11th. A graduate of Hope College, Lt. Cocker USN, Ret. served on the Leyte and the Rushmore. Originally from New York, a position with General Electric brought he and his family to Huntsville in 1965. A move that left him with a love of the south for the rest of his life. In the 1970's, a position with TVA moved he and his wife to Knoxville, but retirement brought them back home to Huntsville. An avid numismatist since age 13, Neil was active in the BRNA. He was a Mason, and later became a Shriner, and was an active member of the Huntsville Kiwanis chapter and Golden K. Mr. Cocker was married 65 years to Corinne "Teddy" Cocker, who passed away in 2014. He is survived by his children, Timothy Cocker of GA, Susan McBarron of VA, and Thomas Cocker of GA, five grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren. He will be laid to rest in the Chattanooga National Cemetery at a date to be later determined. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Huntsville Humane Society. Arrangements are under the care of Chattanooga Funeral Home Crematory and Florist East Chapel, 404 South Moore Rd. East Ridge, TN 37412.
