Mr. Fox was a family man, good friend, hard worker, and vicious poker player. He was employed at Whallon Machinery and later took over the family farm in 1988. In his earlier years, he raced motorcycles and micro midgets. He was a member of the pit crew for an NHRA dragster. He enjoyed the thrill of riding roller coasters with his children. He loved fishing at Lake Okeechobee in Florida and going on fishing trips with neighbors. He was always ready to go mushroom hunting. He enjoyed playing Euchre in a card club for many years. But, most of all, he loved playing games with his grandchildren.
