Ronald Joe Cox

Ronald Joe Cox, 70, of Owensboro passed away Thursday, March 2, 2023, at Owensboro Health Regional Hospital. The Daviess County native was born November 8, 1952, to the late Paul Cox Sr. and Mary Ann Kelley Cox. Joe graduated from Owensboro High School (class of 1970). He worked at Whitehall Furniture before being employed at Whirlpool where he retired in 2010. Not being one to sit around, he worked for Casey’s and later for Goodwill. Joe was an avid UK fan but also loved fishing, reading, and playing video games. He was a good “cat dad” to his feline pets.

 

In addition to his parents, Joe also was preceded in death by his first wife, Jackie Cox.

 

Those left to cherish his memory include his wife of 18 years, Mildred Cox; stepchildren, Kristina Glosser (George) and John Kerner (Maggie); grandchildren, Cassie Cooper, Sean Cooper, Dakota Kerner, Nevaeh Lundsford, and Dayton Lundsford; seven great grandchildren; brothers, Don Cox (Sheila Faye), Paul Cox Jr. (Ruth Ann), and Brad Smithhart (Danielle); several nieces and nephews.

 

The funeral will be 2:00 pm, Monday, March 6 at Glenn Funeral Home and Crematory with visitation from 10:00 am until the time of service. Burial will be in Elmwood Cemetery.
