Hello everybody.  

I've written this message several times then deleted it each time trying to find the right words.....trying to wrap my head around it.....trying to hold back my emotions.  I simply can't do it, so I pass on the words from his wife.

"I am not sure that I am posting this in the right place but wanted  to updade you that Fox passed away yesterday.  He had a very difficult time and was very restless the last few hours of his life.  I promissed that I would make sure his passing was comfortable and admnistered evrything I had to maintain his comfort.  He is at peace now.  Thank you all for your support." His wife Jan

Somehow I knew this was coming but didn’t want to believe it. I can’t express my thoughts or feelings about this right now as I’m sure many of us are feeling the same.

I came online to check on my friends as I have not been here in awhile.  Fox is first one I see that has passed on.   He was always encouraging to me.  We laughed had good times on here.  My prayers for his wife and family.  RIPmy friend. You will be greatly missed on this forum.

When I was first diagnosed and read all the old posts, his words of wisdom were a blessing. If karma multiplies like money, then Fox is the wealthiest man ever. Pizza and beer in his honor. 

Thank you, stub, for letting us know.

Fox was very special on this site. Heed his words and always keep the karma flowing. My thoughts go out to his wife and family.

Keep telling myself that the new drug will work on him....

Fox, you beat this cancer already. There is no need to fight anymore.

You will be missed. Rest In Peace warrior.

First I would like to say to Fox's family I am so sorry for your loss. Personally, Fox calmed me down when I first was diagnosed. He scolded my vanity for worrying about the potential scarring and not comprehending the big picture. But, when he advised pizza & beer was in order, it was like a Papal Blessing! Rest easy Fox, you have helped so many.

A giant loss for our community.  He gave us all strength.  Fly free Fox and keep watch over us...I know you will.

He's in pain no more.  Peace and condolences to his family and friends.

This broke my heart. Unfortunantly, I knew this day would come. He was such a fighter, and had the best advice. He was one of the first to give me advice and reassurance. I'm relieved he is no longer in pain. Thank you Fox for being apart of my journey.

We had a great visit, but his body was not being kind to him.  I am so glad I called when I did, and evev got him a "keep on" card an hour ago.  He knew it was time to go, but his body wouldn't quit-at least for a few more days.  We had become long distance friends on this board and off.  FLY stood for Fox Loves You....but in this case, FLY my friend, the pain is gone.

Love and Hugs to all who cared for him.

Keep on thinking of his widow.  She stil has to take care of her 94 year old mom who has Alzheimer's.  When she ate dinner, most of it ended up on the floor for the dog.

So saddened to hear this news. My last message from Fox was taken by the crash here. But I'll keep it tucked safely in my heart.

Thank you so much, Stub. I think we all know just how hard it is for you to have to post this news.

Thanks, Jan, for your story. Now I know what FLY means. I kind of thought it meant to be free at last, which is what Fox is now.

I know he wouldn't want us sad or crying, he would want us to fight on. So, we will.

I had a feeling this was coming - but boy, does it hurt to read it has actually happened.  It's a testament to FOX that the passing of a man most of us never met, a man that was, in simple terms, words beind a picture on a board, has left me sitting here with real tears in my eyes.  His advice and encouragment to all of us is going to be sorely missed.  Talk about fighting the good fight - he did that and brought us all with him.  FLY Fox...be at peace and free from pain and worry.

I am so sorry to read this, i knew there was something amiss when he last signed in on February 6th.  We lost a great man in every sense of the word! I am so glad he is at peace.  We will miss you greatly, our dear Foxy!  The last 7 years of knowing you were the best years!  Until we see you again, on earth, healthy and in good spirits, (John 5:28,29) may your family find the comfort they need, knowing you are not suffering any longer.  For the rest of us, let's remember how strong Fox was in every sense of the word! He said not to stress or worry because that will not add to our life, and we can't get that time back. Let's fight like warriors and do all that is possibe to beat this plague! Stay strong and conquer!  I believe his positive, fighting, encouraging spirit and attitude, kept him with us for a long time and kept him going.  Hugs to each and every one on this board! Beer, a song on the guitar, pizza and a ride on a harley in Laurence J. Fox's honor!  You will be missed! Angec

As I read this I am dealing also with the passing of my eldest brother (on Monday).  Though he did not die from cancer he had a difficult time the last couple of years. Fox was such an inspiration to many of us.  I have referred to the term "Fox Strong" many times since knowing him, and I can truely say I am better for having known him.   Rest in peace Fox. Via Con Dios my friend.

OH Jack, I am so sorry to learn that your brother passed too. 

Yes, Fox or Laurence touched so many, heart to heart, with his

knowledge and led us with this wisdom.

Hope you are doing ok. May you FEEL your brother's presence around you.

Sending, Healing Hugs,

Sorry to hear about the loss in your family.  "Fox Strong" is a great term we all can use from time to time.

Deepest sympathies to all his family. Fox was an inspiration for many of us. One of the first to answer my first post on this board in 2014. He always had the words to keep us on track. He will be missed!! A real fighter! :-(

I'm so sorry to read this. I'm looking for something poignant to say, but the words aren't coming. Fox inspired me, as I'm sure he did many of us. I hope we can all remember the things we learned from the experiences he shared and the example he set.The best way we can honor his memory is to keep this group vibrant, be there for each other as much as we can, and make sure new members of this community feel welcomed and supported.

Yes, Foxy and Jan, we are also heartbroken, yet relieved that the awfulness is over.

You are free Larry FLY!!


Jan, no one can know how you truly feel. You fought the good fight alone side Larry. 

I think he now knows how many of us came back to this forum just to check on him. 

We miss him terribly too. Even with the preparation of his passing.. it still hurts. 

WE now will keep on keepin on.. and on.. and on...

He was so supportive of me. So Loving and funny!

May he toss few with his friends from CNS in heaven!

Zoom..zoom.. away, as his SPIRIT is ALIVE and WELL!

Healing hugs to all of us

and to Jan and your family.

We will all come to an end at some time, but it is still very sad to see such a stalwart of our group finally succumb.

A pioneer in not giving in to cancer, long may his memory linger.

RIP and condolences to Jan.

I haven't been on here much, recently, but Fox was always on my mind and in my heart. Part of me held my breath every time I logged on here, and would be relieved if I saw a post from Foxy. 

Jan4You - thank you for thinking to message me about this sad news.

Foxy - you will be missed more than you know. You have supported so many of us through the years. I joined 2013 - and Foxy was active as ever. Sadly we have lost so many wonderful CSN friends. These losses are so heartbreaking.

Rest in peace, sweet friend. FLY will forever be in our hearts.

To hear that the great Fox has passed. What an incredible fight from an incredible man. Just that pic will be ingrained in my head for a long long time...a man larger than life. So many things in life are surreal and confusing as hell. I let out a smile and think that 'ol Foxy is pain free and riding high in the great sky. Blessings to all his family

Didn't really know Fox, but it's clear he will be sorely missed here.   I suspect there is much we can learn from his experience and approach to dealing with this awful disease.
