Colon V. Cox, 81, of Bristol, passed away after a brief illness on Tuesday, February 7, 2023 at Bristol Hospital. He is now reunited with his loving wife of 53 years, Jeneanne Marie (Detour) Cox and his granddaughter, Kennedy Cox.
Colon was born in Caribou, Maine on July 4, 1941 son to the late Delmar and Georgia Cox. He grew up in Maine and married his better half, Jeneanne, who was truly the love of his life. Together they raised a family of five and proudly watched the family grow with the younger generations. Colon served our country in the U.S. Army and retired as a coach bus driver after many years of dedication. Colon enjoyed working on cars back in the day and he had a love for NASCAR and watching Old Western Movies. The family genealogist, Colon found excitement in researching family member history, visiting many cemeteries over the years to connect the family tree. His family will forever remember and love him as the “grumpy old man” that he was.
Colon is survived by his children, Bradley Cox, Brian Cox, Elizabeth “Lisa” Cox, Shelly Cox, and Robin Cruz, all of Bristol; his grandchildren, Corey, Kylie, Shana, Alexia, and Jacob Cox; Taylor and Josh Martin, Maggie Siemiatkaska, Noah, Kyle, Melanie, and Amber Cruz; his great-grandchildren, Oliver, Luis, Calvin, Hendrix and was expecting another great-grandchild due in the summer of 2023; his brother, Richard McDougall and his wife, Phyllis, of Southington; his nephew, Richard McDougall II; and his nieces, Karen Roy and Pamela Angelillo; and several extended family members. He also leaves behind his four-legged best friend, JC.
Colon’s family will celebrate his life privately. He will be buried with his wife, Jeneanne, in Maine at a later date.
