December 10, 1960 - October 11, 2021
WILTON COX, JR. affectionately known as ‘Baby Brother’ or simply ‘BayBra’, was born on December 10, 1960 in Baltimore, Maryland to the late Wilton Cox Sr. and Shirley C. Marshall. He departed this life after battling a long illness on October 11, 2021. Wilton graduated from Douglass High School in 1978 where he participated in swimming, drivers ed, and the printing press. He worked for Baltimore City Department of Public Works as a construction worker for over 20 years. Wilton was a simple man who didn’t like a lot of fanfare. He enjoyed watching all kinds of sports, especially football and was a huge Pittsburgh Steelers and Miami Dolphins fan. He hosted big Superbowl parties annually where he indulged in his second passion, food! He knew where to find the best food in the city and seemed to make friends wherever he went. Although he was never a wealthy man, Wilton was an extremely generous soul always there for friends and family, often offering his last to assist anyone in need. He had an incredible sense of humor, frequently engaged in witty banter with his loved ones and concocting clever nicknames for his nieces and nephews. Although he liked to maintain a tough-guy persona, Wilton loved animals, especially his dog Forest. Wilton leaves behind his oldest sister and long-term caregiver, Shirley Wilson; his sisters, Robin Coleman, Kathy Harris, and Linda Wright; his brothers-in-law, Art Lawson and Michael Wilson; nieces, Crystal Ciszek, Amber Coleman, Tiffany Harris, Jasmine Wright, Diamond Jones; nephews, Jeremy Cox, Andrew Marshall and Christopher Ciszek; and a host of other relatives and friends.
