COX Franklin D.
of Holly, passed away June 25, 2018 at 53 years of age. Born November 12, 1964, the son of Franklin and the late Lillian Cox. Beloved husband of Renee for 21 years; loving father of Bradley (Stephanie) Cox and Nathan (Amber) Cox; proud grandfather of Caleb, Leo, Daphne, Charlotte, Jovie and Claire; caring brother of Michael (Laura) Cox, Margaret (Darin) Bradley, and the late William Cox. Frank first walked into Renee's life in 1992 on the ball fields at Brewbaker's where he loved being with friends and playing softball. They married four years later and moved to Holly with their sons. Frank's family was so important to him, and his heart was never fuller then when he would spend time with his children and grandchildren. He loved being outdoors and camping with his friends. He enjoyed going to the movies with his neighbor Bob every chance they had. He adored all animals, which was never more apparent than with his five cats. He cherished his relationships with all of his friends, bonfires with neighbors, and BBQ's with Leonard, the Bailey's, the Biscovich's, and all of their children. His laugh was contagious, and his smile would brighten anyone's day. He will truly be missed.
Saturday 2:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Saturday, June 30, 2018, 5:00 p.m. at COATS FUNERAL HOME 8909 Dixie Hwy, CLARKSTON.
