William David Cogburn

William David Cogburn of Lytle, age 16, born July 21, 2000, passed away Thursday, July 13, 2017. (Apparently we should have told him this part wasn’t a race, because he beat us all to heaven.) William is preceded in death by his grandfather, Billy D. Cogburn; grandparents, Pansy W. Breiten and Edward R. Breiten; uncle, David Breiten; and aunt, Gail Breiten White. He is survived by parents, Curtis and Sandra Cogburn; brothers, David and Brian Cogburn; grandmother, Bettie Cogburn; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. The amount of friends left behind is innumerable for his family because to meet him was to become his friend. From before birth, William had challenges thrown his way, but he wasn’t one to let obstacles deter him. His heart, while imperfect in a medical sense, was perfect in its ability to love others. He made friends easily. In his heart was a sincere love for sports. Despite the potential risks to his heart, he could not be slowed down.
