Our Sympathy to the Family of Bill Cox

We are devastated to have to share the news with you that our very own, Bill Cox, passed away yesterday evening after a very long battle with Covid. I am sure for many this will come as a shock, as he was steadily recovering and even looking for one level places to rent, in anticipation of being discharged soon, etc. Unfortunately, his health took a sudden turn over the weekend, and the family informed us of his passing last night.

 

Bill Cox had been in real estate for nearly 35 years, and had spent 20 of those years with us at Realty Executives. His laughter and smile that filled the halls over these last couple decades will be greatly missed. If you have any photos of Bill throughout the years that you wish to share, I plan on compiling a digital scrapbook of sorts for his son, Tyler – to let him share in the memories we made here with Bill at Realty Executives. In fact, attached is the newspaper clipping we kept in his folder from when he first joined us in 2001.

 

I will update with any arrangements as we hear word from the family.
