Celebrating the life of
David B. Fox, Jr.
Passed away on June 07, 2023
David B Fox Jr - Oct 3, 1937 – June 7, 2023
David Fox died peacefully in his home on June 7th with his family by his side. Dave was a friend and supporter of many, known for his constant curiosity hobbies (model trains!!!) and razor sharp wit. He will especially missed by his wife of 62 years Mary Ellen, his daughter Malinda (Mindy) Fox and her husband Robert Cohen of Scottsdale AZ., his sister Barbara Knapp of Charlottesville, VA. and beloved five nephews – Fritz, Chet, Andy, Stuart and Christian.
Dave was born and grew up in Philadelphia, PA., graduating from Franklin & Marshall College in Lancaster PA. Post college he served in the National Guard and then went on to work for several pharmaceutical companies, moving from city to city as he climbed the corporate ladder, ending his career as a Sr. VP at LensCrafters.
In 1997 Dave and Mary Ellen decided make a personal move to Savannah and the Landings on Skidaway Island.
Since moving to the Island Dave enjoyed many games of golf, spending time at the fitness center and playing Bocce.
Once retired, Dave’s commitment to giving back kicked into high gear. He served for several years on the Franklin & Marshall Alumni Board, volunteered countless hours as a mediator and was a strong supporter of St Peters Episcopal Church. Most recently his passion was Kiwanis – as he was currently the sitting president of the Skidway Island Chapter. Responsible for raising tens of thousands of dollars for the children of Savannah.
If you had a chance to meet Dave you know he was larger than life and full of stories. He’d ask that you keep those joyful stories close to your heart.
Memorial services are planned for late August.
