In memory of Lion Mickey Cox 

 Past President 1982


Lion Mickey Cox

Lion Mickey Cox died on Saturday July 15, 2006 .A memorial was held at Trinity Lutheran Church in Pell lake, WI on Tuesday July 18, 2006.
Lion Mickey was the President of the Lombard Lions Club in 1982.
My fondest memory of Lion Mickey was working Candy Day on his and Lion Rollin's corner at Myers and Roosevelt on cold October mornings. I felt safe with Lion Mickey towering above the traffic with his arms outstretched, Candy in one hand and Container in the other.
A tireless worker in the days of Chicken Fry's twice a year. A great organizer of recreational programs such as the fishing trips on Lake Michigan for several years.
In the days when attendance was 4 Tuesdays a month Lion Mickey was always there with his happy disposition and encouraging words.
We all remember him best probably as the willing Santa Claus year after year, for not only those that are less fortunate, but bringing out the best of the season in all of us, The Spirit of Lionism.
His memory lives in Lombard Lionism.
We are grateful.
Lion Doc Ernie
