Stanley L. Fox
Stanley L. Fox, 87, Galena, went to be with his Lord and Savior on September 2, 2012. He was resting comfortable on the couch waiting for dinner. Stan was a delightful and caring man. He had a wry sense of humor and was easy to talk to. He asked little of others, but gave much. He had a deep sense of the Lord’s presence and was sought for his Godly wisdom. He was actively caring for his wife and children up to the day that he died.
He will be remembered lovingly by his wife, Janet King Fox, to whom he was married June 16, 1956; by children Philip (Cheri) Fox of Ada, Michigan; Steven (Debbie) Fox of Wooster, Ohio; and Beth (John) Foss of Marion, Indiana; and by grandchildren Seth (Mandy) Foss, Autumn Fox, Joshua (Sarah) Foss, Daniel Fox, Bethany Fox, Jonathan Fox, Alyssa Foss, Nina Fox, Jennifer Fox, Christopher Foss, Benjamin Fox and Samantha Fox.
He followed his brother, Joseph W. Fox, and sister, Elizabeth (Sam) Justice, to Heaven.
Stan was born June 24, 1925, the son of Fred and Emma Fox. He was a graduate of Ashland High School, Ashland College and Bowling Green State University. He was a World War ll veteran. He was a teacher, principal and local superintendent of the Berlin Local Schools in Erie County. He then worked for 26 years for the Ohio Department of Education as a Supervisor and Assistant Director of Elementary and Secondary Education. Concurrently, he served as the State Director for the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
A resident of Galena for 38 years, Mr. Fox served on the village council as well as the planning and zoning committee.
As a member and elder of the Grace Brethren Church of Columbus, Mr. Fox considered the opportunities to join with his wife Janet in serving the Lord in the ministries of the church his highest and most valued privilege.
Viewings were held on Sunday, September 9, and Monday, September 10, at Fickes Funeral Home in Jeromesville, Ohio. Services will followed at 11 a.m. on Monday.
