Obituary for Jonathan “Jon” Howard Cox

Jonathan Howard Cox, 44 passed away peacefully from a long battle with cancer on Aug. 30, 2022.

He is survived by his father, Jim Cox (Jeanne Cox), his mother, Catherine Cox (Butch White), his siblings, Matthew Cox, Scott Aust (Kathy), Ashley Johnson (Keith).  He had two special nieces, Kendra and Kayley Johnson, and a grandmother, Christine Cox Shelton. He also had many aunts, uncles and cousins.

He had special loved ones, Hope Rorrer and her two children, Catlin and Dustin, and Becky Bishop, who was his companion and caretaker during his last months.

He was a 1996 graduate of Pulaski County High School.

Jon, as he was known, was extremely gifted and talented and had an unusual gift for problem solving. He served as his dad’s partner in Cox Paving for 25 years and up until his illness sidelined him he was essential to the business, according to his dad. He was sought after because of his mechanical knowledge, and his engaging personality, and would rarely turn anyone down that might ask for his help. He will be sorely missed.

Visitation will be at Valley Harvest Ministries on Valley Harvest Place Road, Saturday, Sept. 10, 2022 at 1 p.m. with a Celebration of Life service following at 2 p.m.
