In the Alumni Office, we love seeing the demon deacon children of alumni! (Or pictures of alumni when they were little deacons themselves.)

And we figured we weren’t the only ones. Over the next several weeks, we will be featuring “darling deacons” here on Alumni, So Dear. It’s a chance for alumni parents to share with the Wake Forest community pictures of their children in all of their Black & Gold gear. We’re happy for alumni to take a walk down memory lane and send in any childhood Wake Forest photos of themselves, too.

Our fourth Darling Deacons are brothers Richard (’06), Robert (’09), and David Cox (’11).

Their father, Ricky Cox (’76), started the family’s Wake Forest tradition. The boys grew up in Asheboro, NC and have fond memories of going to just about every home football and basketball game. Their parents still reside in Asheboro, NC. Ricky is a member of the Alumni Council. Currently, Richard is an urban planner in Charlotte, NC; Robert is pursuing a masters in architecture in New York; and David is a Wake Forest Fund Fellow here at the University.

We are excited to share another darling deacon next week.

Would you like to be considered for darling deacon of the week? Email your photo and the names of those pictured, your name and class year, and any other related information to alumni [at] wfu [dot] edu.
