"As you walk down

the fairway of life

you must smell the roses,

for you only

get to play one round"

Ben Hogan

As most of you know, Gary was diagnosed with melanoma in September of 2006 and passed away on October 20, 2006.

Gary loved the game of golf both as a player and fan. During his brief illness and the days he was able to be in our home in Rancho Mirage, he would watch the numerous improvements being made to our golf course, especially the new hole on the 15th fairway right outside our front door. Gary was excited about opening day and the upcoming golf season (his 1st after his semi retirement from Printronix). Unfortunately, Gary did not play golf on opening day.

As was a tradition for 20 years, Gary and I always visited the Palm Springs area to celebrate his birthday and attend the Bob Hope Classic. Throughout the years we shared this event and its many memories with our dear friends Karen, Doug, Dennis, Vicky, Mike, Vicki and Sherry to name a few.

On Sunday afternoon, January 2007 I was sitting with Doug and friends on the 4th hole of the Bob Hope Classic. Enjoying a bloody mary and thinking of Gary, out of the blue I looked at Doug and asked him if he might be able to get together a foursome and play a round of golf for Gary at the Rancho Mirage Country Club. I will never forget Doug's look and words. "Jan we will put together a golf tournament in memory of Gary. Karen has done it before and will help." Poor Karen was out on the golf course keeping score for the pros, unaware of the commitment Doug had just made. Thus Gary's tournament was started.

I want to take this opportunity to give a huge thank you to Karen and Doug, the generous sponsors, players, volunteers, our many friends, and last but not least our children and family (who I am sure felt I had lost my mind) for their support. Together we raised over $30,000.00 for critical melanoma research and to help heighten melanoma awareness.

We are looking forward to seeing you on the greens at the 2nd Annual Gary D. Cox Memorial Golf Tournament, raising money to provide hope for people and families fighting melanoma.

Best regards
Jan Cox and family
