                                                            His memories will be cherished by those he leaves behind; his beloved wife, Janet Cox of the home; mother, Ann Cox Pridgen of Farmville; brothers, Simon Cox (Vicky) of Hookerton, Reggie Cox of Farmville; sisters, Sharon C.

                                                            Wayne was an avid outdoorsman that loved hunting and fishing.  He loved his family, friends and co-workers.  He was always sure to share a comical phrase or joke with you every visit or phone call to leave you with a chuckle.  He was a man of few words with a big heart. He was a devoted husband, good father, loving son, special brother to his siblings and a special uncle to his nieces and nephews.  He will be sorely missed by us all! His favorite words to those dear to his heart were “I love you more”. 

                                                            He was retired from the City of Greenville with nearly 25 years of service as an equipment operator in the public works department. 

                                                            In lieu of flowers, (optional) memorial contributions can be made to his wife, Janet Cox, 230 Moseley Road, Walstonburg, NC 27888.
