Mr. Donald Lee Wilcox, age 66, of Marietta, GA., passed away on Wednesday, October 11, 2017. Mr. Wilcox was born April 25, 1951 in Upland, California, a son of the late Donald Lee Wilcox Sr. and Janet Louise Houston Wilcox Cansler.
Mr. Wilcox moved to Marietta in 1961 and attended Sprayberry High School and Kennesaw State University. His working career was spent as Branch Manager for Wertz Welding and Tank. Donald was a faithful member and deacon of Mt. Arbor Baptist Church in Marietta. One of his favorite hobbies and passions was coaching for the Blackwell Bears, Sprayberry Jr. Jackets, and Shaw Park Baseball. Donald truly made a lasting impact on the young gentlemen he had the opportunity of coaching. Up until the day he passed his sense of humor and infectious personality were more than evident. However, what was always evident about Donald throughout his entire life was the love and dedication he had for his family. He was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend; he will certainly be missed by all who knew and loved him.
Along with his parents, Donald is preceded in death by a sister, Patricia Rowe, sister-in-law Vickie Wilcox, and step-father Martin Cansler.
He is survived by his loving wife, Pamela Wilcox; two children, Andy Wilcox of Kennesaw, GA, and Jonathan Wilcox, wife Dawn, of Woodstock, GA.; one brother, James Wilcox of Kennesaw; three grandchildren, Samantha, Ansleigh, and Madison; and several other nieces, nephews, and extended family.
