Donald Ray Fox, 67, was born on July 16, 1950, to Raymond and Mary (Orr) Fox. He passed away at his home on Oct. 20, 2017.
Don worked as a truck driver and other occupations. During this time he was united in marriage to Gwenn Wilson. To this union three children were born – Crystal, Shiela, and Dustin.
Don liked to fish and dance. He loved his family and working in the yard. He would send his kids fishing for crawfish to eat. He also loved to tinker with his 57’ Ford pickup, was a NFL Steelers fan all the way and loved Science Fiction movies. He was also known to be a prankster. Although gruff and ornery, it became comical with everyone having a laugh. Don was always good to help others when needed. He had a way about him to make others feel at ease and loved!
