Newscenter 11 is saddened by the death of Marl Cobler, a longtime coroner for Lauderdale County.
Cobler died early Thursday following a lengthy illness.
Cobler did not seek reelection in 2003, after serving as Lauderdale County's coroner for 24 years.
We were with Cobler in November when he voted, as it turned out for the last time, for his son, Clayton Cobler to succeed him in office.
He was a friend to Newscenter 11 and he will be missed.
