“Our elders look to God for leadership and direction – TBF is about Him, not about us,” says Homer Cox, who agreed to serve as part of the elder team in 1980.
Homer was stationed at Nellis AFB as a surgical technician when he met his wife, Pam. Homer was accepted into a hospital nursing education program in Phoenix, receiving an early release from the Air Force allowing him to attend. Upon graduation from nursing school in May 1970, Homer joined the Army and was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the Army Nurse Corp.
Homer and his wife Pam came to Duncan in 1976, after Homer accepted a position as an anesthetist following his service in the Army. He and Pam have two children, four grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
Homer retired in 2006 after providing anesthesia services at DRH for 30 years. Travel and cruising are favorite past-times for Homer and Pam. They consider their travels to Israel, China, Turkey and Greece with their TBF family as some of the most meaningful travel they have enjoyed.
