A great man needs no introduction nor fanfare. And so let us celebrate a great man, Claude Richard Cox. My daddy was my hero in life. He was a builder of dreams, a strong but gentle man who treasured his God, his family, and his country. And he never lost his step. The greatest tribute that anyone can give my daddy is to do just as he did; live a highly principled, honorable life, fight the good fight with a twinkle in your eye, and always give a part of your strength to someone who needs it. Thank you daddy.

Although I never met Claude, we share some of the same heritage from our Tennessee roots; and I’ve heard good things about him from some cousins over the past several years.

Please accept my deepest condolences for your loss.

We are housebound because of illness and cannot attend. Claude was a good customer who became a great friend. He will be sorely missed.
