Robin Cox

July 30, 1965 — August 25, 2021

Robin H. Cox, 56, of Bladenboro, passed away on Wednesday, August 25th, 2021 after a hard fought battle with COVID-19. Robin was born July 30th, 1965 in Sanford, NC.

Robin was a man of many talents and hobbies. He was an avid outdoorsman and sportsman, and a master of his trade in welding. He loved traveling, especially on cruise ships, and made his way through many countries with an ice cream cone in hand. He was also self-proclaimed the best cake baker in Bladen and surrounding counties. Robin was notably selfless and generous - he would truly give the shirt off of his back for anyone. He was incredibly proud of his daughters and would brag about them to anyone who would listen. He enjoyed spending time with his cherished grandkids, JT, Jenson, and Luna, who affectionately knew him as "Poppy."

Robin is preceded in death by his father, Larry Cox and his grandson, JT Higgs.

Robin is survived by his devoted wife of 30 years, Candy Cox; daughters, Kelsey Cox (Jacobe Higgs) and Haley Cox; mother, Joyce Campbell; siblings, Cindy Cox and John Cox; grandchildren, Jenson Ray Higgs and Luna Claire Higgs; niece, Charli Hall (Robert); great nieces, Peyton and Karson; nephews, Joseph Kelly, Chad Cox, and Cody Loomis; father-in-law and mother-in-law, Craven and Lillie Sealey; sister-in-law, Kristi Sealey; and his best buddy/family dog, Cooper.

The family will hold a private memorial service.
