Cox, Frank Archibald – Princeport
The family of Frank Archibald Cox, Princeport, are saddened to announce his passing on October 11, 2013, after a lengthy illness.
Born in Princeport, on June 17, 1926, he was a son of the late Archibald and Susan (Bradley) Cox.
He and his wife, Anne, raised their family in Princeport, where he was an active farmer until heart problems forced him to retire. Always proud to be a farmer, he promoted agriculture in many ways, and was fondly known as the “Egg Man”. A lover of animals, he and his Labrador retrievers, Beth and Nicole, were seldom apart. He was involved in many farm related activities as a dairyman and an egg producer. He was one of the founding members, past president, and a long-time board member of the Colchester Co-op. He also served as a director of Scotsburn Dairy. Frank was one of the founding members of the 4-H council and a member of the Clifton 4-H club, where he later served as leader and a general leader for 30 years. He was a member, and past president of the Nova Scotia Federation of Agriculture, and a member and past president of the Senate Club. He also served as a board member and past president, of Kings Mutual Insurance Company. Frank was an active member of Princeport United Church until its closure. He then became a member of Old Barns United Church, where he taught Sunday school for many years, and was an active elder and steward. Frank enjoyed the cottage at Shortts Lake, where he spent most summer weekends with family and friends. After his retirement, he and Anne spent 20 winters in Florida, where he enjoyed sports, walking, and supporting his favourite ball team (the Blue Jays) during summer training camp.
Frank is survived by his wife, of 63 years, Anne (Chisholm) Cox; his sons, Donald (Denise) Cox, Princeport; Robert Cox, Truro; his daughters, Joanne (Randy) Crowell, Bible Hill; Sally (John) Forbes, Old Barns; his only brother, Donald S. (Eleanor) Cox, Truro; and several nieces and nephews. He was loved by his five grandchildren, Anne-Marie (Andrew) Taylor, Laura (Steven McCabe) Cox, Nathan (Emily Shupe) Dickie, Megan Crowell and Brendan Crowell; and great-grandchild, Nyomee Taylor.
Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his sister, Ethel White.
Cremation has taken place under the direction of Arimathea Funeral Cooperative, Upper Musquodoboit.
Visitation will be Thursday, October 17, from 4-7 p.m., in Old Barns United Church, where funeral service will be held on Friday, October 18, at 2 p.m., with Rev. Ian Harrison officiating.
