Dr. Cochran was a veteran of World War II. He graduated from the University of Washington Medical School in 1961. He completed 2 years of residency in Orange County, CA. He began private practice in 1963 in Cloverdale and Healdsburg, CA. He, his wife Dixie, and children moved to Incline Village in 1978. He started private practice in 1979 when there were very few services and no hospitals in town. He equipped his office to accommodate for emergencies. He was very grateful for all the warmth and appreciation he had received from patients, friends and colleagues. He loved playing golf, reading, and spending time with family.
