Coulbourne Thomas Rader, 35, passed away Tuesday, March 7, 2023, in a local healthcare facility, with his family by his side. Coby had lived in the area his entire life, and was to be married this fall. He was fun-loving, kind, faithful, and adored animals. He had a big heart and loved his family above all.
