On Jan. 20, 2023, our world lost a beloved brother, father, uncle, friend, and Nashville Scrapper: Steven Todd Cox. His family and friends are heartbroken by this loss. Those who knew him are invited to celebrate his life on Wednesday, Jan. 25, 2023, in Nashville, Ark., at 200 Lake Nichols Drive from 5-7 p.m.
Steve was born on Aug. 9, 1972, in Pampa, Texas. In his youth, he lived in Texas, California, and Arkansas, intermittently. He graduated high school in his hometown, Nashville, Ark. Early on, Steve settled in Mineral Springs where he realized the true joy of his life: his son, Mason Todd Cox. Steve worked industriously to become a skilled welder, and his talent took him across the country.
Steve passed because of complications from diabetes and stomach cancer. His illness took a toll on nearly every part of his life, but he never stopped working with his hands and making the people he loved feel special. He was always ready to say, “right on,” or make just the right joke, at just the right time. Steve was independent, stubborn, and too-handsome-for-his-own- good. Steve loved his family and friends as fiercely as any person could. We will miss his smile, his sense of humor, and, more than anything, his heart.
Steve is preceded in death by his mother, Dee Williams. Those left to cherish his memory, include: his son, Mason Todd Cox; his aunt, Menyhonne Beckham and her son Ritchie Beckham; his “sis,” Susie Cox Wallace and her husband Boyce “Bub,” Wayne Wallace; his nieces including: Meghan “Meg,” Floyd and her husband Joseph Floyd, as well as her two sons, Bayden Todd Walton and Wyatt Floyd: niece Mackenzie “Kenz,” Corey, her husband Dustin Otto Corey, and her daughter, Charlotte Joy Corey; and his “baby niece” Micah Darlene Wallace. Steve will be extremely missed by the dogs he cared for, Bentley and Jettson. He will be remembered by too many aunts, cousins, and lifelong friends to list here.
