James C. Fox


James C. Fox of Fond du Lac passed away peacefully on November 17, 2022, surrounded by loving family.

He was born on May 12, 1934, in Eden, the son of Raymond and Florence (nee Hillebrand) Fox. On June 27, 1959, Jim married Edith Pigott at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Eden. Soon afterward, they moved to Fond du Lac, where they raised their children and Jim worked as a meat cutter.

Over the years, Jim enjoyed hunting, bowling, golfing, watching football, playing cards (especially cribbage for quarters), and cheering on his children and grandchildren in their various activities. He loved traveling to visit relatives and especially enjoyed driving to California to visit his son. Jim was a Korean War veteran and a longtime member of St. Mary’s/Holy Family Parish.

He is survived by his wife, Edith; children, Diane (David) Dray of Wauwatosa, David (Debra) Fox of Escondido, CA, Joanne (Keith) Stephany of Fond du Lac, and Suzanne (Michael) Fox-Cerney of Eldorado; grandchildren, Adriana Dray, Vincent Dray, Jamie (Jonathan) Ortega, Jonathan Fox, Justin Fox, Benjamin Stephany, and Beth Stephany; great-granddaughter, Adalynn Ortega; and other relatives and friends.

Jim was preceded in death by his parents and sister, Marie Casetta.

The family would like to thank the staff and care – givers at Serenity Villa in Campbellsport for the compassionate care they provided Jim after he and Edith moved from their home of almost 60 years, the little yellow house on First Street.

The family will celebrate Jim’s life at a later date. Twohig Funeral Home is serving the family with guestbook and condolences at www.twohigfunerals. com.
