Who would have thought being steady with a matchstick could save your life, and the lives of two others? Orville did.  Who would have thought you could farm in quicksand?  Orville did.  Who invented the Cox Trough?  Who invented the pig plow?  Who devised a device to rid the pioneers of crickets?  Who learned to navigate a sinking canoe?  Orville did.

By his 24th birthday Orville Southerland Cox had a reputation of being a thorough frontiersman, forester, lumberman, a splendid blacksmith, a natural born engineer - in short a genius.

Assisting to found 14 pioneer cities, digging dozens of irrigation canals, surviving winter freezing and the scorching desert, Orville Cox was a man of extraordinary dedication who helped the Utah valley “Blossom as a rose.”  Baptized by one prophet and counselor to another, eager to heed the prophet’s council and never complain, Brother Cox was a man devoted and enthusiastic to furthering the work of the Lord, regardless of the sacrifice

This brief biography about Orville Cox’s life, I am sure, does not begin to scratch the surface of the fullness of his life and activities, dedication and passion in the gospel.
