Bobby Joe sure put the “Banty” in the phrase Banty rooster. For the few years we worked together, with a few ups and downs, a few arguments, we had a blast. I am proud to have known him and call him my friend. Rest In Peace Bobby Cox. We will see you on the other side. Prayers to the family. Lewis Wright

When growing up out in Tundra, Bobby Joe and his family lived less than half a mile from our home. It was a funny thing...that short distance was in a different school district and it was long distance to call them. Nevertheless, the Carsons and the Coxes were good neighbors, and it is a shame that over the years we lost touch, especially Mark & Rachel, both of whom I have known since childhood and have always admired and appreciated. God bless you all, and thanks to Jesus, this will only be a temporary separation. We will spend eternity together
