Bio: Deputy Cox was a U.S. Navy veteran and had served with the Real County Sheriff's Office for three years and had previously served with the Edwards County Sheriff's Office for five years. He had also previously served with a law enforcement agency in Florida.

================================================================

Deputy Mark Allan Cox was born to Fred Cox and Yvonne Furr in Del Rio, Texas. He spent his childhood years between Camp Wood, Bandera and Smithville, Texas. More than one person can say they had a hand in raising him here in the Canyon. He was an avid outdoorsman, who spent many hours hunting or fishing in whatever area he happened to be in. Mark graduated from Nueces Canyon High in 1979 and immediately joined the U.S. Navy, which took him to places all over the world. It was during this time that he met and fell in love with his wife of 35 years.

Mark married LeAnn Jones Ardis on Nov. 3, 1984 and not only became a husband, he became an instant father to Tamicia and Tara Ardis, whom he raised and loved as his own. He was proud of his girls, and of the son he and LeAnn gave birth to in the early spring of 1985. Mark's job took his family to Florida, up to Minnesota, and then back to Texas where he retired as a chief petty officer in 2003. Law enforcement, however, was Mark's passion and calling. Between the Florida Keys, Rocksprings, Leakey and Camp Wood, Texas, he served the public with his passion to make a difference. He did his best every day to do the right thing for the people of his community. It was because of his community that he found himself pursuing a lifelong dream of becoming a K-9 handler. He was in the process of training with a drug dog when the Lord decided Mark was needed elsewhere.
