    • CWA Local 2204 is saddened to hear of the loss of brother Billy Cox. For those that did not know him, he was a Cable Splicing Technician in the New River Valley area for Verizon. We hope those that did know him remember all the joyous moments you shared and find comfort in the knowledge that there is one more angel in heaven. Prayers go out to family and friends during this difficult time.
