THREE OAKS — Gary Richard Fox, 69, of Three Oaks, was called home by his Heavenly Father Wednesday, January 6, 2021. He died peacefully in the comfort of wife’s presence.
He was born June 5, 1951, in South Bend, Indiana, the second of two children born to Richard and Ida Fox. He married Laura Ann Fry January 28, 1985, in St. Joseph, Michigan.
Gary was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, son, and uncle. He was very supportive of his kids and grandkids lives, interests, and professions. He never parted ways with his family members without them hearing him say, “I love you.” He was well known and like by many people. Music was a passion for “Gar.” He loved getting together with family and friends to jam.
Gary had tremendous faith. He attended Real Life Community Church and enjoyed his close friendship with Pastor Zeiger. He loved reading, studying, and sharing the Bible and fellowship with others. He walked closely with his Lord throughout his life. He was unafraid to walk through his final days knowing that he would be meeting the Lord.
Gary will be greatly missed by family and friends. He is survived by his wife Laura Fox of Three Oaks; children, Richard (Katie) Fox of Buchanan, Ira (Marie) Fox of Buchanan, Autumn (Scott) Sullivan of New Buffalo, Emmaline Fox of Three Oaks; eleven grandchildren, Hunter, River, Stone, Gavin, Rain, Monica, Sheri, Nike, Symanthe, Rowen, Marty; six great grandchildren, Mia, Oliver, Andrew, Stella, Jaydon, Gracelinn; his mother, Ida Fox of Three Oaks; one sister, Sandra (Howard) Jackson of Stevensville; one niece, Nicole Sailor; and one nephew, Charles Jackson of Nampa, Idaho.
