    Mr. Holman Frederick Cox, age 89, a resident of Washington, NC passed away Thursday the 9th of March 2023 at his home surrounded by his devoted wife Linda Cox and family after a lengthy battle with Parkinson's.

    Graveside services with military honors will be 11:00 AM Tuesday, March 14, 2023 at Pamlico Memorial Gardens in Washington, conducted by Pastor Travis Boyd.

    Holman was born in Bath, N.C. on 11 June 1933 and was preceded in death by his parents, Henry Foncie Cox and Iantha Una Andrews. He was the grandson of Jesse F. Cox of Bath and Mary Myrtle (Scrap) O'Neal. The great-grandson of James Henry (Jim) Cox of Bath and Jack-Ann Evans and the great great grandson of Benjamin Cox and Calvenia Bird of Bath.
