Curtis was born on No­vember 6, 1963, in Law­ton, Okla., to Cecil and Anna Cox. Curtis was a longtime resident of Ardmore where he lived with his family. He was a soft spoken man with a heart of genuine compas­sion and many remember Curtis as “always having a smile on his face.” He was a hard worker and worked as a mechanic/millwright. Curtis loved playing soft­ball, watching football and was a little on the mischie­vous side when it came to teasing his mother-in-law. His family was his priority and he was his “Mom’s favorite son.” Curtis was a man who loved and hon­ored his wife, adored his children and granddaugh­ter, and most importantly, he was a Godly man who had a faith and love for Jesus Christ.

He is survived by his wife, Melanie Tucker Cox of Ardmore, Okla.; two sons, Cori Cox and Creed Cox, of Ardmore; two daughters, Meghan Cox and Lauren Tucker of Ard­more; one granddaughter, Khloe; his parents, Cecil and Anna Cox of McKen­zie, Tenn.; sisters, Shawna and Jeffrey Laporte of De-Land, Fla., and Sabra and James Fair of Nashville, Tenn.; grandmother, Ruby Cox of Arkadelphia, Ark.; and many beloved aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.

The visitation will be from 6 until 8 this eve­ning at Griffin-Hillcrest, Ardmore.
