1910- 2008

Our beloved father and grandfather, Clyde Ray Cox, age 98, quietly passed away Sunday, Aug. 17, 2008 at the Emery County Care Center in Ferron, Utah, surrounded by his four children. Clyde was born July 31, 1910 in Fairview, Utah to Lyman Ray and Anna Dora Christensen Cox. He spent his life farming and also mining for the American Fuel Company. He married Lola Beth Nyberg on Dec. 11, 1945 in Salt Lake City. They later divorced.

Clyde had a witty sense of humor and was an exceptionally hard worker who always put others before himself. He recently enjoyed celebrating his 98th birthday surrounded by family and friends. His greatest joy in life was his family - he had a special love for his children and grandchildren. He was our constant pillar of strength and an endless example of gratitude in all things great or small. He always found the positive in life and never uttered a complaint, even in the most difficult of situations. He will be greatly missed by all those who love him.

Clyde was the oldest World War II veteran in Emery and Carbon counties. He served as an Army Ranger and was a member of the 81st Infantry "Wildcat" Division, which fought in the Pacific Theater. He was the recipient of the Purple Heart and the Bronze Star.

Clyde is survived by his children and their spouses: Judy (John) Clement, Springville; Clayton (Jerri Lynn), Helper; Scot (Troy), Castle Dale; and Marquita (Phillip) Cox, Orangeville; 18 grandchildren and 25 great-grandchildren. Also survived by brother Loyal and sisters Opal Webb and Myrle Elwood.

Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 21, 2008 at the Elmo LDS Church. Friends and family may call Wednesday evening, Aug. 20 for a viewing from 6-8 p.m. at the Fausett Mortuary in Castle Dale and at the church in Elmo 9:30-10:30 a.m. prior to the services. Interment will be at the Orangeville City Cemetery. Services are in the care of Fausett Mortuary.
