Mr. Larry Cockerham, Commander of the Sam Davis Camp of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, recently passed at the age of 63. Mr. Cockerham was known for his work in preserving the heritage and honor of his Confederate ancestors. He was also a man with a kind demeanor and sense of humor. His ability to laugh at himself was one of his most endearing attributes. Mr. Cockerham was often seen at memorials for all those who have passed in America’s conflicts. He was a great patriot and will be missed.
