Charles Douglas Lox
Charles Douglas Lox of Lubbock, Texas, died on January 7, 2023.
As the self-proclaimed World's Greatest Fisherman, he shared adventures worldwide with many friends and family fly, freshwater, and deep-sea fishing. For decades he showed English Springer Spaniels, loved to hunt West Texas quail, and most recently shared his recliner with wire-haired dachshunds. He was a glider pilot and loved Lake Powell house-boating, snow skiing, and trail riding his horses. He created mesquite furniture and dabbled as a fiction writer.
After his Air Force service during the Korean War era, Chuck attended the University of Arizona for his bachelor's and Master of Science degrees. His inquisitive mind and drive led him to the University of Missouri, earning a Doctorate, followed by Post-Doctorate work at Harbor-UCLA. His research contribution areas included birth defects, toxicology, and oncology. He left his faculty position at the University of Arizona to join the then-new OB/GYN Department at Texas Tech School of Medicine in the early 1970s. As a highly regarded scientist, he also taught medical students at TTUHSC. He was a mentor even after his retirement.
Charles is survived by his wife Pat of Lubbock, his sister Linda Land (Henderson, NV), his daughter Marsha Cox (Tucson, AZ), and sons Dave Lox (Tucson, AZ) and Dennis Lox (Tampa, Florida). He dearly loved his granddaughter Ally Sheehey (Tucson, AZ) and her husband Paul - and cherished the time with his great-grandchildren Lauren and Ryan.
Per Charles wishes, no services will be held.
