William Fred Cox age 90, passed away Thursday, August 24, 2023 at Abingdon Health and Rehab, Abingdon, Va.

Fred Cox was a man of strong moral character who always tried to lift up other people around him for the betterment of others. He instilled a family first and strong work ethic for Larry and Derrick to follow; which continues to this day, and Shawn will shortly follow after graduation. Fred was a staple in the community for many families, working for 38 years at Holston Motor Company, and being an active member of the Nebo Community Center, and Zion Church. He was a kind, gentle and soft-spoken man, however, when he put those three fingers up to Larry, it went without saying he better straighten up. He loved to do farm work, mechanic work on his farming equipment, as well as hunting and fishing.  More than anything, he was one proud “Pop” to his two grandsons. He was deeply loved by all and will be missed.


He was preceded in death by his parents, Gilbert and Florance Cox; seven siblings.  


Fred is survived by his loving wife of 63 years, Revena Hubble Cox; son, Larry Cox (Debbie) of Ceres, Va.; sister, Ruth Hamm of Nebo, Va.; brother, Vance “Pete” Cox (Ozela) of D.C.; two grandsons, Derrick Cox and Shawn Cox; several nieces and nephews; special friends, Travis Poston, Cory Farmer, Toni and Delana Sheets, Chasity “Katy” Doane; and the dogs he worshipped, Cash (aka Sneaky Pete), Maverick, and Patches.
