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.

    a huge loss

    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.

    A large loss

    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.

    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.
