William Bradley "Brad" Cox

d. January 19, 2022

William Bradley “Brad” Cox, 52, of Gastonia, NC passed away on January 19th, 2022.

Brad was born on April 15, 1969 to Roger Dale Cox and Diane Farlow-Luck in Ramseur, NC. After Brad graduated from Eastern Randolph High School, he went on to study at Wingate College.

Upon graduation from Wingate he began his career at Sprint, now T-Mobile, and continued working there for 30 years. He was an exemplary role model for many colleagues and his work ethic was above and beyond expectations.

Brad enjoyed visiting friends in various states and planning trips to travel the world.  Some of his favorite places included Turks & Caicos, Brazil, New York, Jamaica, Ocean Isle, and Blowing Rock. When he wasn’t traveling, Brad could be found at home with his favorite Weimaraner companions, Cooper and Sophie.

Brad was best known for his infectious sense of humor and grand storytelling abilities. His laughter and jokes will be remembered by his many friends and family.

Brad was preceded in death by his father, Roger Dale Cox, his sister, Felecia Cox Hayes, and his stepsister, Beth Luck. He is survived by his mother, Diane Farlow-Luck, his step-father, Jerry Luck, his step-sisters, Jeanette Sikes, Audrey Maness, and Annette Luck, his step-niece, Madison Luck, and his twin nephews, Dillon (Julia) and Lucas Hayes (Cate).

Funeral Services will be held at Pugh Funeral Home, Chapel, 437 Sunset Ave., Asheboro, NC on Sunday, January 23rd at 2:00pm burial will follow at Pleasant Ridge Christian Church Cemetery, Ramseur, NC. 

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations are made to Tarheel Weimaraner Rescue, an organization Brad felt strongly about and the rescue that he adopted Sophie from.
