Biography from Heritage Auctions:
Dave Cockrum was born in Pendleton, Oregon, the son of an Air Force officer.  After spending six years in the U.S. Navy, he moved to New York and accepted a job at Warren Publishing, his first professional work.  After Warren, Cockrum became a background inker for Murphy Anderson at DC comics.  Eventually, he got his first big break, landing the dream job of penciling the Legion of Superheroes.  His groundbreaking work on The Legion's character designs and costume changes lasted for over a decade.  His tenure at DC was short lived however, as a dispute led him to work at Marvel. 

At the House of Ideas, Cockrum co-created, along with Len Wein, The New X-Men, the franchise that went on to give Marvel enormous financial success in the following decades, introducing such characters such as Colossus, Nightcrawler, Storm, and Mystique.   He later went on to create the comic book, The Futurians, which had a short run as a monthly series and then as a trade paperback.  In his later years he drew covers for the Blackhawk relaunch, and worked for Valiant, Defiant, Broadway and Claypool Comics.  

Dave Cockrum suffered from diabetes and finally succumbed to his illness on November 26th, 2006.
