Cox, 76, a resident of The Lutheran Home & Services, formerly of Hoffman Estates and Palatine, will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, at The Lutheran Home & Services, 800 W. Oakton St., Arlington Heights. Interment will be in Evergreen Cemetery, Barrington. Visitation will be from 4 to 8 p.m. today, at Ahlgrim Family Funeral Home, 201 N. Northwest Highway, Palatine, and from 10 a.m. until the time of services Saturday, at The Lutheran Home. Born June 10, 1930, in Hammond, Ind., he died Wednesday, Sept. 6, 2006, at The Lutheran Home. Mr. Cox was a Navy veteran of the Korean War. He lived a life full of blessings. He met his wife, Irma, the love of his life, in high school. Together they raised their four children who were all present when he passed into heaven. He ran track and cross country in high school, was an avid reader, a loyal employee and loved great jokes and stories. Warren was a man of faith and we know he is now with the Lord. He worked for Motorola for 31 years as a technician, service manager and facility manager. He was pleased to be involved with the installation of the first modern two-way radio system for the Chicago Police Department in the '60s. He traveled the country with his job and moved to Hawaii in 1967 with Motorola, where he and his family spent two great years. He retired in 1987 and has enjoyed time with his family and friends in his last years. Warren was the father of Alan (Catherine) Cox, Susan (Richard) Leach, Carolyn Smith and Paul Cox; grandfather of Rachel, Emily, Timothy, Nathan, Justin, Adam, Bailey, Wade and Parker; brother of Richard (the late Margaret) Cox, Ralph (Helen) Cox and Ronnie (Sonja) Cox; and brother-in-law, of Dorothy Cox. He was preceded in death by his wife, Irma Cox (nee Smith); parents, Roy and Elsie Cox; a brother, Frederick Cox; and his half-brothers, Bill and Milo Cox.
