Pleasant Garden - William "Billy" Thomas Cox, Jr., 57, passed away October 7, 2020 at home surrounded by his family.
Billy was born November 25, 1962 in Randolph County & resided in Pleasant Garden for the most part of his life. He was a dedicated & loyal employee of M & M Motors for 30+ years. He was a master mechanic & wood crafter creating many priceless pieces of furniture for his family & friends that be cherished forever. Billy was most happy when he was tinkering with an engine, crafting new furniture, sawing a huge tree on his sawmill, or just sitting in the garage listening to old country music sharing good conversation with his friends & neighbors or riding his Harley on a nice sunny day. He was warm, caring, thoughtful, hilarious with his stories, a man of his word & would always try & see both sides to every situation. He touched the lives of many people & will be missed forever but not forgotten.
He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Everett & Carrie Cox & Conrad & Myrtle Kepley. His uncles Worth, James, & Joe Paul Cox.
Heartbroken family members include his parents, William Thomas Cox, Sr. & Srether K Cox, daughter, Amy Cox (Freddy), sisters, Vivian Cox (Mark), Janice Cox (Mark) both of Greensboro, Cheryl Surratt (Eddie) of Julian. Step-Siblings - Lorene, Judy, Lonnie, & Helen. He is also survived by three grandchildren, Constance, Duran, & Sophia. Uncle Lloyd of Randleman & Uncle Larry and Gary Kepley of Greensboro, and 17 cousins & also his precious dogs Buster & Blinkey.
