Tonight we honor a local resident and veteran who lived nearly a century in Santa Clarita.
Clem Cox was the son of Leona and Clement Cox.
The Cox family established a 40-acre farm in Sand Canyon in the 1920’s. Clem’s mother Leona personally saved the Sulphur Springs School District by bringing water when its wells went dry.
Clem attended the one-room Sulphur Springs School, whose entire student body was just 15 to 20 students.
Clem served our country for three years in the United States Marines. He later taught agriculture in San Fernando, while running the Cox family chicken farm.
Clem passed away two weeks ago. He was 90 years old.
We will forever cherish Clem’s memory and his many contributions to the community.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones at this time.
