He was born in Bellefontaine March 12, 1941, the son of the late Lester and Nina (Nickell) Fox.  He was also preceded in death by two sisters, Shirley Monteith and Beverly Woodrum. 

On February 18, 1962, he married Nancy (Fielder) Fox and she survives in Bellefontaine after 59 ¾ years of marriage.

Sam worked 38 years before his retirement from The Shelly Company in Belle Center.  After his retirement, he began his obsession with the game of golf playing often and working at Liberty Hills Golf Course in Bellefontaine.  He loved spending time with his family and enjoyed Bellefontaine Chieftain athletics.  He and his wife also enjoyed traveling together.

In keeping with Sam’s wishes, there will be no calling hours or services held.
