    John was one of my favorite people. He was always so kind and encouraging. It was a pleasure going to church with him and witnessing his generosity, hard work ethic, and devotion. We are praying you you Sandy, John, Jeff/Lori, Jana, Alex, Adam, Jeff, and extended family.

    John was such a hard worker.  The Lord must have decided he needed a good and loyal hard worker in his Kingdom.  God's speed John and prayers to the family.

    I have so many memories of John . He loved his wife  . He was so proud of his kids and grandkids. He supported athletics in the Stillman area and never wanted recognition for it.  I will miss the most of the chuckle he would give me after telling him a story. He could brighten your day just by having a conversation with him . The things he accomplished in his lifetime are amazing. RIP my friend

    I am so sorry for your loss.  Memories of John walking pigs with us and how he'd help all of the families in our 4H club keep track of what class they were on during hog shows have stayed with me over the years.  I always admired how kind and generous he was for doing that.  My thoughts and prayers are with your family and his many friends during this difficult time.

    A very big smile and thank you to Mr.Cox and his family, for all you've done and do. I smile, thinking about Mr.Cox, as that's almost always how he was when I saw him and conversed with him. Every time I pass by your beautiful home I think about some incredible memories, from such a super family. Again, thank you, for all the little things, many of them unseen by others, but always impactful and from the heart.

    To Jana and all the Cox family. I am very deeply saddened to find out today that Mr. Cox passed away. I have very found memories of Mr. Cox telling me some of his life long stories. Football and Baseball games in the rain , sunshine and cold. He was always a great supporter beyond measure. I remember Mr. Cox saying " Even a squirrel finds a nut once in a while " I remember helping him with cutting ditches around the cornfields. Helping me plant a vegetable garden and how to plant a corn seed. I remember standing in the bucket of his old tractor and him lifting me up to the tree tops to spray for those pesky beatles eating all the leaves. Mr. Cox always treated me well and Mrs Cox as well. So many great memories Down in Stillman Valley. I pray for Jana and the entire Cox family for peace and comfort in this sorrowful time and great loss. All I can say is thank you Mr. Cox . May God Bless your family. Jay Krause
