Cox, Roger Alan - Shallotte  
On Sunday, July 17, 2016, Roger Alan Cox began his heavenly journey surrounded by the family he loved. A great man of faith, he was an incredible example of strength and wisdom throughout his life and especially during his illness. He was born in Washington, D.C., on Feb. 3, 1961, to William Fleet Cox Jr. and the late Virginia Neisler Cox. He was a graduate of T.C. William High School (go Titans!) and earned his Bachelor of Business Administration from Campbell University. Working as an accountant, he also taught night classes at Brunswick Community College, and in 1990 he earned his CPA certification. ATMC was privileged to have him as an employee for 27 years. He began as an accountant, and through his dedication and hard work, eventually held the titles of chief financial officer and chief operating officer/general manager. Roger loved and believed in the community where he lived since 1985, volunteering his time and talents by serving on too many boards, committees and foundations to list. He raised thousands for Brunswick Community College in 2009, while showing off his skilled pase doble moves through Dancing with the Stars. He was awarded Citizen of the Year in 2011 and served as an associate district lay leader for the United Methodist Church beginning 2014. His professional accomplishments were many, but his personal accomplishments were immeasurable. Roger was a gifted teacher in all situations, often using his quick wit to play devil's advocate and challenge those around him to think critically. He was blessed to have found his soul mate and have more than a decade filled with laughter and love. His grandchildren knew him as "Papa" and his children will dearly miss their late night porch debates, where they would sit for hours discussing religion, politics and life in general. He is survived by his wife, Jimmie Cox; his children, daughter, Lauren Cox Morgan (Bryan) of Garner; sons, Roger Alan Cox Jr. (Robyn) of Raleigh, Derek Ray Wolfe of Hayden, Ala., and Gregory John Wolfe (Stephanie) of Greensboro; and many grandchildren, Cayden, Emma, Cole, Lila, Luke, Davis, Bryson, Ella, Emily, Claire and Meira. Memorial services will be conducted at 2 p.m., Saturday, July 30, at Camp United Methodist Church, where he was a member, by the Rev. Richard Vaughn. The family will receive friends for one hour prior to the service at the church. Memorials may be made to Lower Cape Fear Hospice & LifeCareCenter for the SECU Hospice House of Brunswick, 1414 Physicians Drive, Wilmington, NC 28401 or Camp United Methodist Church Food Pantry, P.O. Box 776, Shallotte, NC 28459. Online condolences may be sent to the family at www.brunswickfuneralservice.com. Brunswick Funeral Service, Shallotte.

Kreuzburg, Franklin Day - Sunset Beach  
Our family is sad to announce the very sudden passing of Day Kreuzburg. He was born in Washington, D.C., and lived most of his life in Silver Spring, Md. He was 76 when he passed away unexpectedly Monday, July 18, 2016. He is survived by his loving wife of 52 years, Diane; his two grateful children, Brad (Megan) and Traci (James). He also had two adoring grandchildren, Mathis Kelly and Eleanor Day Kreuzburg, as well as his beloved golden retrievers Sangria and Cognac. He graduated from the University of Maryland and served his country as a first lieutenant in the Army during the Vietnam conflict. On his return he helped his father-in-law run the stadium for all Washington Redskin home games. Day and Diane moved to Sea Trail in 2000 and he shortly thereafter began his new "career" as facilities chairman for the Sea Trail Master Association and treasurer for Paws-Ability. He poured more of his heart and soul into his volunteer efforts, in both endeavors, than he ever did running his own company, Kreuzburg & Co. Inc. for more than 20 years. Memorial donations may be made to Paws-Ability, P.O. Box 6174, Ocean Isle Beach, NC 28469 or National MS Society Greater Carolina Chapter, 9771-A Southern Pine Blvd., Charlotte, NC 28273.
