Marines veteran lived most of life in California

- — Robert Joseph Coxon, formerly of Spiers Mobile Home Park, Transfer; and Mertz Towers, Sharpsville, passed away at 11:14 p.m. Monday, Feb. 10, 2014, in Avalon Springs, Coolspring Township. He was 97.

Mr. Coxon was born Nov. 20, 1916, in Brooklyn, N.Y.

Robert was a veteran who served in the Marine Corps during the occupation of Japan and China from 1944 through 1946, achieving the rank of corporal.

He served as a combat correspondent and worked as a news representative for Dodge Reports (F.W. Dodge Corp.) in New York City.

He resided most of his life in California with his wife, the former Rosamond Collins, who preceded him in death.

In 2004, he moved to Pennsylvania to help his friend and remained in Pennsylvania for the rest of his life.

While living in California, Bob enjoyed playing chess with his buddies on the Pacific beaches. He loved politics and reading and was a very intelligent individual.

Bob is survived by a granddaughter, Christine White, who lives on the West Coast.

Besides his wife, Rosamond, he was preceded in death by a son, George and his wife Sandy Coxon; and a special friend, Irene Scrivens.

Mr. Coxon was a compassionate and caring individual who was always going out of his way to help anyone in need. He will be sadly missed by the many close and loving friends he encountered while living in the Shenango Valley, particularly the families of John and Ruthan Lenzi, Sharon; Evelyn Mattocks, Sharpsville; and Jacora Lanfried, Leeper, Pa.
