Mr. Darrell Wayne Cox of the Mannsville community was born on July 5, 1960 to the late Berry and Christine (Bottoms) Cox. He departed this life on Tuesday, September 8, 2020 in Lexington at the University of Kentucky Bluegrass Hospice Care Center, being 60 years, 2 months, and 3 days of age. He had made a profession of faith in Christ and was of the Methodist faith. He was an employee of Nally & Haydon and a logger. Darrell was an outdoorsman; he loved to fish and hunt, especially rabbit, deer, and turkey, and usually kept a good pair of running beagles. He was an avid UK fan and enjoyed listening to bluegrass and gospel music; he often raised a garden bigger than he needed just so he could give it all away.

A daughter: Amanda Beard of Campbellsville,
Three sisters: Laura Cox and husband Keith, Dorlene Perkins, and Mary Gray, all of Elk Horn,
