Obituary

Mr. Charles Edward Cox, age 75 of Broadway, NC transitioned into eternal rest on Saturday, May 15, 2021 at his residence.

Mr. Charles Edward Cox, 75, unexpectedly passed Saturday morning May 15, 2021 at the home of Pastors Harrison and Cathy Ray in Harnett County.  He was born August 13, 1945, to proud parents the late Walter and Rena McIver Cox. God saw him getting tired and whispered to him, “Come unto me my son who is heavy laden, and I will give you REST”, he then departed from this earthly home and took flight to his eternal home.

Charles graduated from Shawtown High School with the class of 1963. After graduation, Charles joined the military to serve his country in the United State Army for three years.

He worked faithfully with the Food bank and fundraising projects.

Charles was well taken care of with compassion and love by his sister Cathy and her husband Harrison and his niece Lisa and her husband Charles McLeod. His favorite pastimes were doing word search puzzles and watching Westerns. He LOVED his Hardee’s biscuits and gravy, and his KFC pot pies.
