Kenneth William (Bill) Cox
Kenneth William (Bill) Cox peacefully passed away Sunday afternoon at the Rockledge Rehab, surrounded by family and friends. Kenneth was born April 1, 1948, to Kenneth Warren Cox and Joann Talley in Salt Lake City, Utah; though he attended school and spent most of his live in this area, he was an avid surfer.
Kenneth was preceded in death by his mother, Joann Talley; brother, Larry Cox; sister, Becky White; daughter, Cajae Gammas; and grandson, Jason Miles Gannas. He is survived his wife, Norma Fox of Rockledge; daughter, Jenna Cox of Orlando; brother, Gary (Karen) Cox of Rockledge; grandson, Brandon Roebuck of Sanford; two granddaughters, Ariana and Aliyay Gannas of Sanford; nephew, Chad Cox, US Army; niece, Sheri Chaddock of Cocoa; and many many friends.
Most of all, we will miss his smile and wink, and his love for his family and friends. Kenneth proudly served his country with the 11th Calvary Blackhorse Infantry in Vietnam, which he received the Purple Heart and other accommodations.
He was a life member of VFW Rocket Post 4534, life member of Amvets Post 863, member of American Legion Post 359, Moose Lodge 1717, Cocoa, Semper Fidelis of America, Orlando, LZ Friendly of Danillsville, GA and Vietnam Veterans of Brevard.
He was president of Some Gave All Inc., the moving tribute which is a traveling memorial to those who lost their lives in the 911 terrorist attack and to our fallen heroes in Desert Storm, Iraqi, Afghanistan and New Dawn. Because of his dedication, this will be ongoing in his memory.
The family wished to thank the staff and some of the patients at Rockledge Rehab for their loving care; the doctors and nurses; the dialysis staff that did all they could do; for Hospice that let him leave comfortably; and the Atlantic Mortuary that made this transition with the utmost care.
A Celebration of Life will be held at 2 PM Saturday, July 6th, at Rocket Post 4534, 3250 S. US1, Rockledge. All are welcome.
