Jerry A. Cox, 60, of East Liberty, Ohio passed away Wednesday morning, August 18, 2021, at Memorial Hospital in Marysville, Ohio.

Jerry was born in Bellefontaine, Ohio September 17, 1960, to Delmar D. and Tempa L. (Holycross) Cox.  He was preceded in death by his father Delmar; brothers, Delmar “Dean” Cox and Michael Cox; a granddaughter, Haylee Jada Hampton and longtime girlfriend Brenda McNutt.

Jerry is survived by his children: Jeremiah (Jeramy) Cox of Raymond, Ohio, Samantha (Marcus) Hampton of Bellefontaine, Christina Cox of Bellefontaine and Amanda Cox of East Liberty; thirteen grandchildren: Patrick, Eli, Diallo, Angel, Princess, Christian, Skyler, Rebecca, Lisa, Dalton, Peyton, Caiden and Braiden; two great-grandsons: Mathias and Caydence; his mother, Tempa L.

Jerry loved being a grandpa and spending time with his kids and grandkids.  He loved mud runs, old cars and trucks and listening to old country music while hanging out with his twin brother Terry.  Jerry enjoyed the holidays where he could see his whole family.  He also enjoyed the occasional “joy ride” and just being outside.

A celebration of Jerry’s life will be held at a later date.

The staff of the Eichholtz Daring & Sanford Funeral Home & Cremation Center in Bellefontaine is honored to serve the Cox family.
