Arrenza Cox

Arrenza Cox was born in Tate County (Barr), Mississippi on November 16, 1946 to the late Archie and Tennessee (Cox) Miller. He was a faithful member of the West Looxahoma Church of Christ in Senatobia, MS until he moved to Sandusky, Ohio where he and his family worshiped at the East Parrish Street Church of Christ. He graduated from Tate County High School and then joined the United States Army where he proudly served his country. 

On April 27, 1968, Arrenza married the love of his life, Bobbie Jean Harris, whom he loved and cared for dearly even as his own health began to fail. He was also a supportive and loving father to his children Anthony and Dominique. His sister-in-law, Bobby Ann Harris, has also been a devoted caretaker to the entire family. 

During his life he was a dedicated, hard worker. He worked several jobs as a young man including a school bus driver with Tate County Schools. He retired from the US Army, retired from GMC, and retired from the Sandusky Police Department with 20 years of service. His lengthy list of hobbies included detailing cars, watching TV Westerns, cheering on the Pittsburgh Steelers, competing in his bowling league, and grilling up delicious food with his homemade seasonings. 

In 2011, he was honored with the Community Impact Award by the National Council of Negro Women, Inc. (Sandusky Section) for his service and dedication to the community. In 2004 he also received a Certificate of Merit for his twenty years of faithful service and dedication to the Sandusky Police Department.
