Bobby Cox

May 2, 1936 — January 8, 2019

Born in Monroe, NC on May 2, 1936, he was the son of the late Dorothy Cox.

Bobby graduated from the former Charlotte Technical High School. He was a veteran serving with the US Air Force and retired after over 37 years as a mill engraver at Consolidated Engravers.

Survivors include his wife of 53 years, Rosemary Ramsey Cox; 2 children, Jennifer Cox McElreath and husband, Noel and Jeffery Cox; 6 granddaughters, Stori Cox, Carley Cox, Caroline Cox, Riley McElreath, Reese McElreath and Rowan McElreath; and 3 siblings, Patricia Burns and husband, Chuck, Bill Starnes and wife, Jasmin and Sue Newsome and husband, Jim.

Bobby will forever be remembered as a loving brother, husband, father and grandfather. Nothing pleased him more than to take his granddaughters on a twilight golf cart ride around Ocean Lakes Campground in Myrtle Beach. They would feed the ducks, admire the RVs, and drink a Cherry Coke at the playground. A lifetime resident of the Charlotte area, he loved to spend time with extended family enjoying Saturday supper at local fish camps or attending family gatherings. Ever a tinkerer, he could often be found under the hood of a car or fixing a broken TV to use on the porch.
