Scott A. Cox
Scott A. CoxWest Virginia MountaineersScott A. Cox, 74 of Richwood, died peacefully Tuesday, August 31, 2021 at his home with his loving family by his side.

He was born April 6, 1947 in Edwight, West Virginia to the late Lee and Emma (Milam) Cox. On November 20, 1971 he married the former Debbie Lynn Burdett and she died December 30, 2006 after 35 years of marriage.

Scotty was a master gardener and a tremendous cook. He grew tomatoes the size of dinner plates. He was the most loyal West Virginia Mountaineer fan ever.

He is survived by his two daughters, Jennifer (Dan) Michael, Richwood; Amy Feith, Richmond Hill, Georgia; grandchildren, Jacob (Lauren) Michael, Lucas Michael, Lissie Michael, Micah Rees, Magdalena Feith; and a brother, Arthur (Sheryl) Cox, Marysville.

Our vacations with Scotty and Debbie at Cade’s Cove in Tennessee were always the best! The last trip after Debbie passed was bitter sweet. He always made the best baked pork chops ever. Anyone who knew him, loved him. We will miss you, Scotty 😢💕💕

I’m so sad to hear this about Scotty. I enjoyed working with him  very much! He always stopped in the office after school to say hi.  One thing I learned about him though, he loved his wife, daughters. and grandkids more than anything else in the world!!!  I’m lucky to have known Scotty.   My sincere condolences to his daughters and their families. Scotty definitely made this world a better place and he will be missed.

I am heartbroken over the loss of Scotty—he was the most genuine, caring and giving man I have ever met. He was deceptively clever. I can't count the times I saw him playfully messing around with people without them 'getting it.' He had a tell, though... that ornery half-grin! I will miss that the most I think. Most of the time Scotty was doing things for other people, especially for his family whom he adored. There were times where Scotty was ruthless and an absolute terror, though... the card table. I never met a more prolific and FUN card flinger. His game of choice was Euchre. If you were his partner you'd leave the game feeling like a superhero. If you were playing against him... you felt it for days. The insults, the unrelenting tricks taken followed by more insults layered in additional insults and, yes, that ornery grin. It was an experience!

Like so many others, Scotty touched my life in a positive way. I wish I was more like him. I wish we all were.

Rest easy, Scotty. You will be greatly missed.

Scotty and Deb always made you feel at home.  Scotty always had a smile and a "Well, how you doing?" and he always listened to your answer.  Sweet, sweet man.  So sorry for your broken hearts.  Big love to the whole family.

Dear Jennifer, Amy and family,
    We were so sorry to hear about your loss; we will miss him so
much.  His Mother and my Mother were sisters and we lived fairly
close to them.  We loved to go to the swimming hole behind their
house and Scottie said they loved to come to ours.
When the kids left home, we were so sad.  On one trip from Ohio
Scottie saw our Dad picking tomatoes and  couldn't   believe
it.  After a short lesson he was thrilled that he could do it too.  My Dad loved it when Scotty stopped by to show off his tomatoes.  We spoke often by phone. We loved Scotty and will
miss him.  Prayers from the Lonker Family, Love , Nancy

We were so sorry to learn that Scotty had passed away. Easily the most enthusiastic person I have ever know, Scotty's love for his family is paralleled. He was the "fun" Uncle. He and Debbie even took me to my first movie, The Shaggy DA, and we laughed so hard. Scotty could always be counted on to play with my boys despite them being special needs. I'm sorry we couldn't come to the service but Mom isn't able to get out much anymore. Our Prayers are with you though and we're sending you our love.

Jen and family,
I will always remember Scott with a big smile. When I worked at NU it was always a joy to stop and talk with him about his garden. He was so excited and proud. Kindness and compassion just flowed from him and his smile never stopped. His life influenced many. Sending prayers and hugs!
