Trooper Cox,

I had breakfast with your son today. I wish you were still around to see the man he has become. I am so proud to work with him in Troop A. I know that if my son is half the man that your son is, I will have done a great job! Thanks for what you did on that duty but making sure a drunk driver was will always be remembered!

So sorry your life had to end so early and with your little son in the car as it happened. You paid the ultimate price, a price no ASP Personnel or other Law Enforcement officers should have to pay. I am proud for you that your son is now an Arkansas State Police Trooper. He wanted to follow his Father's footsteps and also keep this from happening to someone else. You will never be forgotten. ASP will always remember you.

It has been 50 years since you were killed, and some people may not know that your eleven year old son was with you on that fatal day. I want you to know that you can be proud of Benny- now a Sergeant with the Ark State Police, and your daughter Dianne- works at State Police Headquarters. You paid the ultimate price, and we will never forget!Your kids are doing the family name well, by keeping up the tradiation.
