10/26/2020 Our deepest sympathy to the entire Cox Family. Mr. and Mrs. Cox were fortunate to have such a large loving family. Being a Father of all girls I am sure was not an easy task, but he accomplished this very successfully seeing all the memorable pictures of him and his girls together that the girls were so proud to post. All proof of a loving Family. Our Lord took him now so he could be in etenal life with his beloved wife. He is in peace. Your Family will be in our prayers. Friends of Raeanne(Cox) and Frank Pisa. Andy, Meadow, Gabriella and Grandma Esposito

Our father, a wonderful, great man. He taught his girls to be proud, strong but kind independent women. He got the nickname "The Tank" because we really thought he would be here forever, built like a tank. We love and miss you already. You will forever be "Our Tank". Love The Pisa's
