A lifelong servant, Mr. Cox served as Probate Judge and then served for two terms as the sole commissioner for Dawson County during which time he made great advancements in EMS. He was chairman of the Region 2 EMS Advisory Council for many years and was involved in many other worthy groups and organizations.
