On Wednesday, December 9, 2020, the world became a sadder place with the passing of Paul D. Fox, Sr., a good man, husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend.
He was born June 10, 1937 to parents Ruby and Raymond Fox. Other than his parents he was preceded in death by a brother, Loren Fox and sister, Helen Quinn.
Paul had four loves in his life: His God, his family, his church, and his career as an educator. He attended the Oak Hill First Brethren Church his entire life serving at various times a Moderator, Deacon, Sunday School Supt., teacher, choir director, church historian and served as pianist since he was sixteen years old. God's calling on Paul's life was to be a school teacher, and only He knows how many lives Paul touched or changed during his fifty-eight years of teaching.
Left to cherish his memory are his sweetheart and help mate of almost 52 years Jean, his much loved son and daughter, Paul Jr. (Tod) and Beth Ann Fox; his pride and joy grandchildren, Kayden and Drew Fox; his broher, James Fox; sister, Linda Fox; a host of nieces and nephews; special cousin, Ramon Lopez and his wife, Brenda, and many, many friends.
Forever in our hearts and never forgotten in our memory, we leave you in God's loving care until we meet again.
Due to Covid-19 service for family only will be conducted at 1:00P.M. Sunday, December 13, 2020 at the First Brethern Church with Pastor Mike Meadows officiating. Burial will follow the service at Highlawn Memorial Park with graveside service at 1:50 P.M. and everyone is invited to attend. Everyone is invited to attend, keeping in mind social distancing and wearing a mask.
