Passed Away: April 5, 2021

Allen Lee Fox, born May 16, 1927, last surviving child of Floyd and Cora Lee Fox and a veteran of World War II, passed away on April 5, 2021. He was preceded in death by his brothers, Ed, Chick and Grayson and his sisters Mary and Frances and by his wife Dorothy Maguire. He is survived by his children, Linda Fox-Tankersley (Dave Jones), Merilee Fox (Tony Shiver) and Timothy Fox, his daughter-in-law Karen Fox, his granddaughter Erin Tankersley and his former wife Evangeline Ferguson. Allen spent most of his career at NASA and was especially proud that he was a part of the beginning of the space missions. He coached Little League Baseball and loved simply watching games on a Saturday afternoon. Dad had a kind, generous spirit and helped others in his own quiet, humble way. His wisdom about life was immeasurable. He had a twinkle in his eye and a heart full of love and understanding. He was the best dad for his whole life and his children will miss him dearly. Heartfelt thanks to the staff at Spring Arbor and to all the residents who befriended him while he lived there. Services will be private. Burial will be in Arlington National Cemetery. Expressions of sympathy can be made in his name to the American Heart Association.
