My grandpa raised me and my sister. I remember getting every morning going to walf house then going to roof houses with grandpa till we was old enough to start school. We had horses and he taught us how to ride them. My grandpa was the best ever and now he is flying in the sky with God love you grandpa.

I didn't know Roger Dale Cox but I know Donna Minick, who became my loving granddaughter the day she married my grandson, Paul. I love you, Donna and Paul Minick and pray for God to hold you in his loving arms and help you through this difficult time. I am so sorry for your loss.

There was a lot of things my dad could teach people but the one thing he taught me was never depend on anybody else and if you ever want anything out of life you have to work hard for it because nothing is never handed to you❤️❤️. I can also remember a time my son William was wanting a pair of shoes or something and I didn’t have the money and dad said come up here and earn the money boy if you really want them. So William did and got them shoes. My dad will be greatly missed

I was a little girl and on the way to school every morning my grandpa would stop at the gas station grab two can Dr pepper and two hunny bunnys for me and my sister. We had the most beautiful hourse and he thought me to ride them. I remember one day as a little girl getting on the roof of our house we was living in just cause I grandpa was up there. I remember being 6/7 years old and had a bad dream I claimed in bed with my grandpa. I love you grandpa

My Uncle Roger was a great man and will be dearly missed by me and the rest of his family and friends. Even though they weren’t all listed in the obituary Uncle Roger was just one of 17 kids, my dad Glen Edward Cox the youngest passed Christmas Eve of 2015. Uncle Roger practiced tough love but it was real love nonetheless. There was a time 6 or 7 years ago when I wasn’t doing well at all. I had made some bad choices and ended up on a path I’m not proud of. I was down and out, hopeless and homeless. I cried to God for help and it wasn’t a couple of days later my mom called and told me to pack my few belongings because Uncle Roger was coming to get me. He said I could stay with him for a while until I got on my feet. This man who I hadn’t seen since I was just a child opened his home to me his grown, jobless, homeless recovering drug addict nephew. I couldn’t believe it! Somebody cared! God cared and Uncle Roger cared. I will never forget the few months I lived with him and Francis and little Roger. They made me feel welcome and comfortable but not comfortable enough to not pitch in on chores. He worked me hard and helped me find a job. God used my old tough loving Uncle Roger to restore hope in my life and I will never forget it. Rejoice in Paradise Uncle Roger. Today you are with Jesus
Your nephew, little Glen
