Michael Dennis, “Mike” Cox was born on November 26, 1951 in Lubbock, Texas to parents Joe and Mae (Dinnetz) Cox and entered eternal rest on June 9, 2021 at the age of 69. Mike commenced working for DP&L-Dallas Power Light in 1975. Over the next 17 years, DP&L went on to become TXU; and during that span Mike became a Registered Professional Land Surveyor in the State of Texas. Upon having the opportunity to retire from TXU early, Mike saw a unique business opportunity to partner with a dear colleague to start a new business. The year was 1991, and the company was Cornerstone Surveying. Mike also was an owner of Cedar Creek Bank and served on the Board of Directors from 1991 until 2005. Mike had many hobbies from water skiing, softball, fishing and golf. What Mike held dearest and what he would deem his greatest achievement was his family. Mike was married to Haven, the love of his life, for 49 years. He was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather. He loved his siblings and extended family immensely. He was a man of his word and was a member of First Baptist Church Tool. He will be missed by all who knew and loved him. Mike was preceded in death by his parents, Joe and Mae (Dinnetz) Cox. He is survived by his wife Haven Cox, his sister Diane Whiteside and husband James, his brother Eldon Cox and wife Gwen, his brother Randy Cox and wife Lori, his daughter Christy Cox-Sabo and husband Tim, his son Chris Cox and wife Julie, four grandchildren: Cash, Kensington, Leah and Hunter; countless nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews, and many other loving family members and many dear friends. Mike was a warrior in his battle against cancer. Throughout Mike’s life, there is a common thread that tells a very clear story of a man that had a deep-rooted sense of what was fair and just, an unwavering commitment to excellence, a tireless work ethic, a strategic mindset that was not averse to risk, and last but not least, a defender and protector of truth. All of those things, together with and through God’s blessings, demonstrates how Mike’s legacy will live on through those he loved, adored, mentored and were his own. His ability to lead, listen, mentor, encourage, and love will never be forgotten. Mike always set the bar high and aimed for the stars. His family finds comfort in knowing he is high in the sky with our Heavenly Father.

Funeral services will be held at 2:00pm on Sunday, June 13, 2021 First Baptist Church of Tool in Tool Texas with Brother Derek Rogers and Brother Rocky Weatherford officiating. Immediately following the 2:00pm funeral services, graveside services will take place at the Tool Cemetery.

I will always remember Mike as a great friend,& neighbor. He moved in next to us in 2000 and we were quick friends. He always came over after golf or a boat ride to laugh and talk about his day. What great memories I have of him riding jet skis with Larry and I. He will truly be missed by all that knew him. Rest In Peace my sweet sweet friend.

I wanted to offer my condolences for the loss of your husband/dad/ grandpa. I wanted to hug each one of your necks when Asa and I went through the receiving line but it was awkward being the first and I didn’t want to take up someone else’s time. I wanted to be able to tell each of you how much I miss y’all and how much your dad/husband/ grandpa meant to me and my kids. The service was beautiful and embodied him well. Excellence, property taxes and Dr Pepper. That’s him for sure. I miss the sound of his leaf blower and rarely don’t think of him when I use mine. The house across the street will always be Mikes house. And kids will always be welcomed to ride bikes up and down the driveway so long as they don’t rut up the yard and put the bikes away when not in use.😉 I wanted to be able to tell Tim we miss krispy cream donuts and tell Chris we miss playing whiffle ball. Your dad and you Chris were the first to see the talent in Asa and yesterday he went to be apart of the malakoff state winning baseball team. We miss all the goodies Haven would bring us after your get togethers and we miss seeing what a family looks like. Mike made ya’ll the family I always wanted growing up. A strong man, hard working, fiercely devoted. He loved his neighbor as he loved himself and I will never have a neighbor like him. Not till we have mansions side by side in heaven and I’m requesting the house across the street from his. Love yall and praying for you.
