DescriptionState senator and former Assembly Republican leader Dave Cox died today, ending more than two decades of public service by a fiscal conservative and political tough guy who savored a good joke and loved to laugh - even at himself.

His family said Cox died at home, surrounded by friends and family, after a 13 year battle with prostate cancer.

"A devoted family man, he always found time to serve his community and constituents," said the statement from the family. "Dave took great pride in public service and making government work for the people it serves."

Cox, 72, served on the Sacramento Municipal Utility District Board and as a six-year Sacramento County supervisor before joining the Assembly in 1998 and Senate in 2004.
