Robert M. Cox born April 20, 1936 died on February 25, 2020. Bob was born and raised in Princeton, New Jersey. He graduated from Princeton High School in 1954 and the Hun School in 1956. Bob joined the USAF in the fall of 1958, completed basic training at Lackland AFB, and assigned to SAC at Loring Base in Caribou, Maine. At Loring, Bob was a flight line firefighter driving a crash truck. In 1960, he was transferred to SAC base in Anderson, Guam and placed in charge of flight line Fire Prevention Base Fire Safety. Bob was honorably discharged as Airman, second class at Travis AFB in California in 1962.

In 1964, Bob returned to Princeton to manage the family business, Cox’s Store, Inc. He met his wife Jane Turner and married July 11, 1964.

After twenty-five years managing the business, Bob retired and made up for some lost time on the golf course. Jane and Bob took many hiking and sailing trips around the world, their most favorite being voyages on the topsail schooner Shenandoah, based out of Martha's Vineyard.

Bob enjoyed being active in the community. He was a volunteer firefighter for Princeton Hook and Ladder and an usher for St. David the King church. In addition, he held many positions in the West Windsor Lions Club and was the Commander of American Legion Post 76 in West Windsor.

Bob was predeceased by his wife of 55 years Jane T. Cox, his parents James and Helen Cox, and his brother Allan Cox. Bob is survived by his daughter Alice Beene (John) of Princeton Junction, NJ, daughter Elizabeth Frasier of Atlanta, GA, brother Don Cox (Janet) of Beach Haven, NJ, and grandchildren, of whom he could not be prouder, Christopher and Emily Beene.

In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to a Veteran's Organization of your choosing.

A memorial gathering for Bob and Jane will be held on Wednesday, March 4, 2020 at Barlow & Zimmer Funeral Home, 202 Stockton St., Hightstown, NJ 08520 from 6 - 8 pm, with a memorial service starting at 7:30pm.

Shirley and I will miss very much our good friend of many years Bobby. Our Saturday evening dinners at Perkins will never be quite the same without Jane dancing the hula and a story from Bobby. A good man, a good husband, a good father, and our good friend. No doubt Bobby and Jane are together again in a better place. Don and Shirley Cripps

Lion Bob was a true friend and mentor to me during my years with the West Windsor Lion's Club. His humor was priceless. A bit of sarcasm with the ridiculous. Always so serious telling the fake story. A heartfelt loss of both him and Jane. Lion Mary Weaver

Lion Bob was a very pleasant friend to work with. I have known him for over 24 years at the West Windsor Lions Club. He was the life of our club. He always amused us with his jokes, although spoken in serious settings. When I spoke with him a couple of weeks ago, he will soon be coming to the Lions club. There is so much to sort out at after Jane left him. Both Jane and Bob will always be in our hearts and we pray for their sours RIP!
