Mel was an avid collector and enjoyed hunting and fishing. He was often working with his hands: fixing up old cars and assisting family, friends and neighbors with home improvement projects. Mel was a loving and devoted father and would do anything to help his children: he ended every conversation with, "Call if you need anything." He is survived by two of his brothers, Myron Cox and Mike Cox; his children and children-in-law Jacob Cox (Marge) and Merilee Pike (Brad); and a grandchild, Abigail Pike.
In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Mel can be made to the Arizona Humane Society.
