1955 ~ 2019

It is with great sadness that we share the news of Bill’s sudden passing on Monday, April 8, 2019. Beloved son of Carole Howey and the late Murray Cox. Loving brother of Patti Cox (Rob Farrington) and Ted Cox (Judy). Proud uncle of Victoria Graham (Matthew) and Katherine Cox (Darren Wakem). He will be greatly missed by many friends and colleagues. Bill will be remembered as a kind soul with a free spirit. He was gifted with a talent for electronics and computer technology. During his 25 years at UWO, he pioneered and developed large presentation spaces to enhance educational opportunities. Recognizing his vision and skills, Bill was presented with the Western Award of Excellence in 2006. His adventurous side inspired him to pursue a career in Nicaragua, Central America, followed by a successful tenure of 10 years in his field in Toronto. Cremation has taken place. A Celebration of Life will be conducted at WESTVIEW FUNERAL CHAPEL, 709 Wonderland Road North, London, on Sunday, April 28, 2019 at 2:00 p.m., with visitation one hour prior. Private interment at a later date. In lieu of flowers, those wishing to make a donation in memory of Bill are asked to consider the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
