Michael Cox was said to have been an affectionate and caring man. He had a love for the great outdoors, spending as much time as he could out on the water fishing. It has even been said that he would catch and eat whatever ended up on his line. He had many fond memories with his father, hunting squirrels and rabbits with their beagles. Michael had a keen eye and the ability to fix almost anything that ended up in his hands. A witty man as well, he was known for cutting up with his friend and family, even the doctors and nurses that helped to take care of him. He enjoyed spending time with “Frog” aka Brandon Lee teaching him how to fish and fix things just as he did. Overall, Michael will be greatly missed by his friends and family. Although he is gone, he is not forgotten.

A memorial service will be held at a later date in Campbellsville, KY.
