In memory of
Charles Vernon "Charlie" Cox
Charles "Charlie" Vernon Cox was born on August 8, 1928, in Little Elm, Texas to William Madison Cox and Nora Bell Nelson Cox. Charlie had two sisters, Oleta Hullet and Margaret Good, and one brother, William "Bill" Cox, Jr. Charlie died on June 1, 2020 at his home in Dallas, Texas. He was preceded in death by Camille Delores Brewster Cox and by his son Gordon Ray Cox. Charlie is survived by his wife Joy Faye Cox and children Brenda Jean Bateman (Roger) of Sherman, Tx., Karen Cox, James Kent Carter (Vickie), Keith Edward Carter (Kitty), Kurt Alan Carter (Donna), Kevin Nash, Scott Nash, Linda Karen Proctor and grandchildren Cody Bateman (Sylvia) of Richardson, Tx., Gretchen Cox of Austin, Melissa Cox( Jon Cao), Keith Edward Carter II (Alison), Cassidy Joe Carter (Bethany), Colby Keaton Carter (Caroline), James Kent Carter, Jr. (Courtney), Jack Kassey Carter, Kristopher Alan Carter, Aaron Thomas Carter, Lachrisha Jean Carter, Liz Grari (Hassan), Michael Hufford, Bryan Hufford, Marc Hufford, Amber Price (Charlie) of Edmond, Ok., Heather Peck (Jay) of Edmond, Ok., Will Proctor, and his 33 great-grandchildren. Charlie had lifelong passion for sports; he was a natural-born athlete. As a member of the Mesquite High School football team, Charlie was their prized punter, but he was actually most accomplished in baseball. After graduation, Charlie was drafted to try his talents in professional baseball, but instead, he chose to embrace a life of family and fatherhood. Charlie was an adoring father, who gifted his children with the best hugs, time to listen, and his passion for sports. Proudly, several of Charlie's children and grandchildren would also play high school and collegiate sports. With their large family, and multiple friends, Charlie and Joy enjoyed many happy years together. At their beloved Eagle's Club, Charlie, Joy, and their children spent countless hours creating memories and lifelong friends. In fact, his son Ray served a term as Club President. Enduring a difficult fight with cancer, treatments, and surgeries, it was at the Eagle's Club swimming pool where Charlie went for pulmonary rehab. Charlie was a strong competitor, with an ever-present smile; he beat cancer an astounding four times and was even cancer-free for his last eight years. Charlie was an avid and loyal horseracing fan. He loved to watch and cheer, and even recently requested a 2020 calendar highlighting monthly races. Charlie was a consistent and loving man for every one of his 92 years. He loved his family, his sports, his club, and his bible. Charlie faithfully read the bible each morning with his coffee; just lately, he started on his second time to read the entire bible. Charlie Cox had the talent to play professional sports, but instead chose to build his life around family. That is just who Charlie was. Every person who knew Charlie could see that a smile never left his face. His children knew him as a trusted confidant, equipped with wisdom and quick intuition. They universally remember him as very wise, a joy to be around, and a man everybody loved. Charlie's smile and kindness will live on with Joy, and his many children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren; but, mostly through his enormous hugs. A Graveside service will be held Friday, June 5, 2020 at 10:00 am, space 5. Grove Hill Memorial Park Cemetery 4118 Samuell Blvd. Dallas, Texas 75228 214-381-7118 In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Visiting Nurses of America Hospice (1-800-CALL-VNA gethelp@vnatexas.org 1600 Viceroy Drive, Suite 400 Dallas, TX 75235).
