FOX, Gary John  
We lost a good old county boy on December 8, 2022.  Gary John Fox passed away at the Fox Farm, just shy of his 79th birthday, with his family by his side: loving wife of 57 years Lynn, children Ian and Christina, Lori and Manson (Slik) and Kyle and Tanya. Missed dearly by his grandchildren Justin (Erienne), Kierstin Bernard (Andrew), Celina (Will), Nathan (Michaela), Ethan, Halla (Brendan), Nicholas, Olivia (Justin), Jackson (Paige) and his great grandchildren Blake and Kayce. Gary was the son of the late John and Mary Fox.Gary was a determined man with conviction. He could be a hard old County farmer on days, but most that knew him and loved him knew him as someone that just loved to visit and listen. Outside of his farming and family life, Gary was proudly and passionately a Prince Edward County Councilor, Reeve of Sophiasburgh Township, and a Minister of Provincial Parliament (1995-1999.)Gary had 5 years of quality life after the diagnosis of cancer and was very appreciative of the many doctors and nurses that contributed to this. A very special thanks to his Palliative Care Nurse Practitioner, Brad Gunn who walked the 5 years by his side guiding him along the way. Friends may visit with the family on Tuesday, December 13th from 1-4 p.m. at the Wellington District Community Centre, 111 Belleville Street, Wellington. Funeral Service was held on Wednesday, December 14th at 11:00 a.m. at the Wellington District Community Centre, 111 Belleville Street, Wellington.
