It is with a heavy heart that I share with you the passing of my father, Col. Frederick Lawton Cox. Dad passed peacefully, in his sleep, during the small hours of Christmas Eve. He lived a full and happy life, largely due to the many, close relationships he forged, especially in the dental and horsing communities. Dad had a zest for life that was infectious to those around him. His sparkle will be greatly missed. A memorial service will occur on Saturday, Feb 1, 2020 at Cedar Lakes & Gardens, 4990 NE 180th Ave., Williston Florida. Service to begin at 6:00 pm. In lieu of flowers, I would be grateful if you honored dad’s memory, patriotism and profession by donating to either Wounded Warriors Project or Project Smile. Both are foundations that dad and Joy, his late wife, supported through ought their 44-year marriage.
