William Albert Wilcox, long time resident of Elephant Butte, died June 14, 2018 after a long battle with cancer. He spent his final days with his sister at her home in Elephant Butte. Albert will be lovingly remembered by his two sons, Kevin Wilcox and Daniel Quist. He will also be remembered by his sister, Sandra Hopper. He is also survived by four grandchildren, Eli, Tristan, Adelaide, and Oliver. He is predeceased by his father, Cecil; his mother, Berna; and brother, Lee.

 Known by many names, “Bill” was a committed father, a generous man, avid fisherman, and a caring friend. Albert believed that military service were the dues we pay for our democracy. He served two tours in Vietnam in the 238th Gunrunners and the 7/17 Air Cavalry.  After leaving the Army, he worked for the El Paso Electric company, and the El Paso Fire Department. He retired as Fire Marshall for the City of El Paso in 1996.

Those who so desire may make memorial donations in memory of Albert to the Wounded Warriors Project, P.O. Box 758517, Topeka, KS  66675, 904/296-7350.

    Accept our heartfelt sympathy in your recent loss. May you find strength and comfort from the words of Nahum 1:7 Which reads: “Jehovah is good, a stronghold in the day of distress. He is mindful of those seeking refuge in him.” Yes, our loving God is there for us if we allow him to help (1 John 5:14). He didn't intend for us to grow old and die. He thus has made the SURE promise of a resurrection RIGHT HERE ON EARTH when it is restored to a beautiful paradise (Psalms 37:9-11, 29; Acts 24:15; Isaiah 55;11). Can you see yourself welcoming back to life your loved ones? What a joy it will bring all of us! You can go online to JW.ORG and find out more about this resurrection.
