Mr. Clemmie Cox, Jr., of Campbellsville, son of the late Ethil (Bland) and Clemmie Cox, Sr. passed from this life on Sunday, October 13, 2019 in Lexington at the Baptist Health Center. Born on October 25, 1943, he was 75 years, 11 months, and 18 days of age. Mr. Cox had made a profession of faith in Christ and was a member of Woodlawn Christian Church. He had served his God many years as a deacon both at Woodlawn Christian Church and Mannsville Christian Church, and he served his country honorably in the Army National Guard. He retired as a mechanic from Fruit of the Loom after 30 years on the job and worked for Mid South Drilling in Columbia for 15 years. He loved working around the house making repairs both large and small. Besides his church life, though, Mr. Cox had one priority - his family. He spent countless hours both watching and playing sports with his children, and regaled any willing ear with stories of their exploits.
He leaves to mourn his passing:
His wife: Ivana (Followell) Cox of Campbellsville,
Two children: Dr. C. Todd and Mrs. Kristin Cox of Newnan, Georgia, and Dr. Alison Cox of Georgetown,
One sister: Patsy Cox Barnett and husband Thomas of Campbellsville,
Two grandchildren: Benjamin Wesley Cox and Kaitlin Andersen Cox,
Brothers-in-law: Bryant Wilkerson and wife Dorine, and Garry Pepper and wife Mary, all of Campbellsville,
And a host of other family and friends.
There will be a funeral service to honor the life of Mr. Cox on Thursday, October 17, 2019 at 11:00 AM in the chapel of the Woodlawn Christian Church, 831 W Main St, Campbellsville, KY. Bro. Fella Wilson will be officiating. Entombment will follow in the Campbellsville Memorial Gardens Mausoleum, with full military honors being accorded him by the Marion County Veterans Honor Guard.
The family will receive friends at the church on Wednesday, October 16, from 5:00-8:00 PM.
