Cox, of Amarillo; three daughters, Gloria Pirtle and husband, Richard, and Dianna Higgins and husband, Ken, all of Canyon, and Deborah McWilliams and husband, Dean, of Phoenix, AZ; nine grandchildren; and 15 great grandchildren. The family would like to give a special thank you to all of their special friends who have supported them throughout the years.
