Timothy Alan Cox age 56, of Tarpon Springs, Florida passed away Wednesday, April 14th, 2021, at Kindred Hospital, Tampa, Florida. Timothy was born, September 16, 1964, in Oregon, Ohio, to Kenneth Paul and Irene Mary (Hann) Cox.
Tim grew up in Toledo, Ohio and attended Waite High School in Toledo. He moved to Florida in 1988. He will be greatly missed by his family and many friends. He was a hard worker, a loyal friend and family member, and an animal lover. Having several pets over the years, he put his heart into all of them. He spoke often about whichever pet he had at the time and told stories about the ones who had passed, all of which were family. Tim was an underground utility worker, until retiring in 2019 due to an injury. He enjoyed watching football, hockey, and baseball, and was an avid Ohio Buckeyes and Green Bay Packers fan. He enjoyed most being with his family and friends. He was kind, thoughtful, and the life of the party. He had a great sense of humor and made everyone around him happy.
Tim was preceded in death by his parents, Kenneth and Irene Cox, and his older brother, Robert L. Cox. Tim is survived by his life partner, Iris Switkes; his daughter, Beth Ann Cox; his son, Troy Williams; his siblings, Kenneth L. Cox, Terry L. (Noreen) Cox, Gerard F. Cox, Daniel J. Cox, Teresa M.
