Kenneth Cox Obituary
KENNETH COX Kenneth Ronald "Ron" Cox, of Las Vegas, returned to his Heavenly Father Aug. 18, 2010, after a valiant battle with brain cancer. He was born in Provo, Utah, July 18, 1952. He was the first born of Kenneth Norman "Norm" and Ruby Gurr Duke Cox, the oldest of nine children, six sisters and two brothers. Ron attended Orem City schools and graduated from Orem High School in 1970. When in high school, he was honored as an all-state football player and wrestler. He later attended and played football at Snow College. He married his sweetheart, LaDean Mecham, June 21, 1974. They were later sealed for time and all eternity in the Jordan River Temple June 29, 1984. Throughout their marriage, Ron and LaDean lived in many different places throughout the western United States and eventually settled in Las Vegas. Ron worked as a power lineman for over 30 years and especially loved his most recent job working as an electrical inspector for Nevada Power. Ron and LaDean have four children, Kimberly Wenger (Stewart) of Frisco, Texas; Ronnie Cox (Adina) of Las Vegas, David Cox (Rebekah) currently serving in the U.S. Army stationed in Honolulu, and Alissa Cox of Las Vegas. He also has four grandchildren, Thomas, Justin and Brenna Wenger; and Austin Cox. Ron was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and held many church callings throughout his lifetime. He was a devoted husband, father, brother, uncle and friend. One of his great joys was spending time with his family in the mountains on his snowmobile. He loved and cherished each of his grandchildren and they brought much joy into his life. Anyone who has met Ron is a better person because they knew him. His gentle personality touched everyone he came in contact with. He was a kind nonjudgmental person who showed unconditional love to everyone. He will be greatly missed and we look forward to being together with him again someday. Ron is survived by his wife; children; grandchildren; father, Norm Cox; siblings, Lynette Nelsen (Gary); Cindy Sorensen (Steve); Cassie Every (Steve); Lisa Safely (Brent); Dana Cox (Gina); Jessie Peel (Richard); Jason Cox (Cindy); Stacy Cox; and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his mother, Ruby Cox; and both of his in-laws, Mary and John Mecham. Visitation will be 9:45-10:45 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 28, with the funeral services following at 11 a.m., both at the Cedar City Westview LDS Chapel, 2830 W. Cody Drive, Cedar City, Utah. Interment will be at the Cedar City, Utah, Cemetery. Online condolences may be sent at www.andersonmortuary.com
