SIERRA VISTA — Stephen Cobb, better known as Woody, went home to be with our Lord Jesus Christ
on Monday, October 31, 2022. Woody was born to Cecil and Athelin Cobb, on July 1, 1954, in Okinawa Japan. He moved to his beloved Sierra Vista in 1956 with his family. Woody graduated from Buena High School in 1972 and left with his lifelong friend Dave Grotts to attend Denver Automotive and Diesel College.

Upon graduation. Woody returned to Sierra Vista where he met his wife, Lynn (aka Glendalynn) on November 16, 1976. Woody and Lynn were married on July 3, 1977. In April 1978, Woody opened his own automotive shop, Woody’s Certified Auto Techs. He was in business for over 20 years, before retiring.
Following his retirement, Woody spent his time walking the streets of Tombstone in authentic period dress. He never met a stranger and came to treasure his time sharing the history of Tombstone and Cochise County with thousands of guests, residents and movie crews. Over the years he became a fixture in the community and was loved by all. He made many wonderful friends in Tombstone who became a very important part of his life.

Woody and Lynn have four amazing children - Tiffany (Charles) McKinley, Stephanie (Mike) England, Marie Elena Cobb and Steve Cobb. They have also been blessed with nine beautiful grandchildren - Ethan, Joseph, Isabelle, Jayden, Cecilia, Makayla, Brooklynn, Michael and Gabriel. We grieve the loss of Woody in our day-to-day lives, but rejoice in the knowledge that he is in Heaven, celebrating in the joy of God and with family members who made the journey before him.

Woody spent his life in the Love of God, serving Him daily. We are proud and honored that the Lord gifted us with such a wonderful husband, father and grandfather. We love you and we'll see you again when we join you in the glory of God, Woody!

I've always felt that Woody was the toughest guy on the 72 Football team.  He never quit.  I ran into him a few times since 2008 either in Tombstone or when he came up to Winter Range.  May God grant comfort to his family.

I have fond memories of Woody.  
Woody was in my auto shop class at Buena. I was very impressed that he already knew all about auto mechanics and was the star of the class.  All the kids were envious of how much he knew about cars, engines, suspension, four-barrel Holley carburetors, etc.  Woody could have taught the class. 
I also vividly remember his car.  He rebuilt it from the ground up, including the engine, exhaust system, and sound system!  And to top it off, he had the car painted with what I recall was the most beautiful color of deep yellow.  I could stare at that car all day.
I remember sitting in Algebra class, and every day right at 12:05, everyone would hear Woody turn the corner at the intersection just outside the classroom window, screeching those tires as he made the turn back into Sierra Vista, as he drove that beautiful car to lunch.
Rest In Peace Woody.

Well , Woodro old friend, you finally made it! I will miss those long talks on the phone and in person. What I wouldn't give to have one of those talks now. I wish you long burn outs in heaven, thrilling gunfights you brought to everyone watching you over the years, and an eternity of peace. I couldn't have had a better friend or brother.

I don't remember Woody in school, but we attended the same church he did, believing in our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.   He would talk about his acting career, and the famous stars he met while being an extra in certain films. Him being a mechanic,  we took our vehicle in to get it serviced, he says, "never ride with the breaks." Those words has always stayed with me. RIP Woody (Jesus, our only Hope).

Woody was a great and interesting guy. An inspiration for his integrity. I am better for having known him.
