Kenneth Box, age 87, went to be with the LORD Wednesday, October 16, 2013 surrounded by his loving family at St. Dominic Hospital in Jackson. A memorial service will be held at 3:30pm Saturday, October 19, 2013 at Crossgates Baptist Church in Brandon. Visitation will precede the service beginning at 2:00pm at the church.
He will be dearly missed as he was a man of great integrity, a loving husband and father. He was playfully engaged in the lives of his 12 grandchildren. He always looked for ways to help others in their time of need. He was a lifelong backyard farmer who enjoyed sitting in his swing and looking at all his beautiful plants and flowers. He had a green thumb and could make a dead stick grow.
He is survived by his wife of 33 years, Gwen Box; children, Patrice Box, Eugene Box, Doug Box (Gwen), Warren Green (Diane), Mark Green (Leanne), and Ellen Fulton (Mark); and 12 grandchildren.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Crossgates Baptist Church, 8 Crosswoods Rd., Brandon, MS 39042.
