Robert L. “Cob” Elkins Sr.

Robert L. “Cob” Elkins Sr., age 79 of Orangeville, passed away on December 10, 2020 at Ascension Borgess Hospital. Robert was born on December 26, 1940 in Thacker, West Virginia, the son of Russell and Bertha (Anderson) Elkins. Cob worked as a logger for over sixty years. Most important to Cob was his wife, children, and grandchildren. Cob was a man of God and he was a longtime member of the Pentecostal Church of Christ. He enjoyed cleaning his kitchen and cooking holiday meals with his wife. Cob could be found combing his hair, enjoying a Werther’s candy, mowing his lawn, tending to his flower garden, and always having the right tools for his grandson. In his free time, he enjoyed driving his tractor, playing cards and board games, collecting coins, and feeding his dog, Olive. Cob will be remembered for always having time for a cup of coffee and visiting with friends and family. He truly loved everyone and everyone loved him. Cob is survived by his wife of sixty years, Jane (Risner) Elkins; children: Cheryl Ann Elkins, Bobby (Rebecca) Elkins Jr., Venus (Jacob) Pettey, Sherri Elkins, Roy (Jessica) Elkins, Susan (Tony) Christopher, and Darby (Clifford) Robinson; grandchildren: Katlin Janay Elkins, McKinnon Thomas (Becky) Elkins, Robert (Brook) Elkins III, Freddie Jo Elkins, Mari Jane Elkins, Janie Louise Pettey, and Vivana Cobbie Rose Pettey; great grandchildren: Grant Roderick Roberts, Robert Elkins IV, Hazel Kay Elkins, Eleanor Elkins, Emma Elkins, and Harley Elkins; siblings: Charles Douglas Elkins, Jackie (Ed) Blankenship, Jerry (Barb) Elkins, Jim (Loretta) Elkins, David “Pete” (Rose) Elkins, Danny (Norma) Elkins, Rick (Kathy) Elkins, Jonny (Colleen) Elkins; sisters in law: Janet Elkins and Sandi Elkins; and many nieces and nephews. Cob was preceded in death by his parents; mother and father in law: Ben and Osie Risner; siblings: Ruth (Daniel) Money, Phyllis (Virgil) Buell, Russell “Buddy” Elkins Jr., Barbara Rogers, and Kenneth Elkins; and sister in law: Rachel Elkins. Robert’s family will receive friends on Sunday, December 13, 2020, 11:00 AM to 12:00 Noon at the Pentecostal Church of Christ where his funeral service will be conducted at 12:00 Noon. Burial will take place in Oak Hill Cemetery. Please visit to share a memory or to leave a condolence message for Cob’s family.
