Harold W. Fox, 77, left us to be with his Savior on Friday, December 30, 2022. He will be remembered for his famous fudge, cheeseball, and pizza.
He was born March 6, 1945 in Connersville to Harlan and Mary Lena Terry Fox.
He was a faithful member of the Community Bible Church of Milton, the NRA, and was the interim leader of UAW #1119.
Harold was a man who enjoyed many, many things. Among those things were: an incredible amount of unnecessary tools, every car made by Dodge, guns-guns-guns, debunking historical movies based on the weapons that were out of context, and a Jeopardy “wanna be” (Name the person with more useless knowledge than Ken Jennings? “Who is Harold Fox?”)
He was also an avid bowler (Connersville famous). Harold was known by his cohorts as “Weird Harold” – which seemed fitting.
He was a well-known musket maker whose knives and guns were a sought-after commodity. He also gave much of his life to Roots Dresser in Connersville, retiring in 2007 after 43 years.
He loved traveling, cruising in his Jag, Amish cheese, and making friends everywhere he would go… He HATED cats.
He was loved by many, known by more, and now… a legend.
Survivors include two children, Heather Fox of Indianapolis and Dave (Tina) Fox of Cincinnati; four grandchildren, John Fox of Yorktown, Amy (Chris) Thompson of Winchester, Jonathan (Brittany) Colley of Connersville, and Vicki (Zack) Bishop of Cincinnati; seven great grandchildren; a sister, Sharon Higginbotham of Connersville; and several nieces and nephews. He also leaves behind his best friend, Lucille Cox.
Harold was married to Carol Sturwold on June 28, 1964. They remained married until her passing on June 24, 2019. Besides Carol, he was preceded in death by his parents; his brother, Fred Fox; and his sister, Barbara Robinson.
