On December 06, 2022 Lawrence D. Fox passed away at the age of 86.
He is survived by his wife Carla, and they had a blended family of nine children. David, as he was known to us, is survived by Karen Fox, Melody Fox, Shannon Fox, and Ken Fox. He was preceded in death by his dad, L.B. Fox and mother, Nellie Fox. He was their only child and was born in Longview, Texas on December 19, 1935. David was raised in the Assembly of God as his dad was a minister and so was his mother. They traveled all over Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arizona, as well as California. His dad said, if he had not received the calling to preach, he would have been hobo. David was like his father in many ways; sense of humor, very friendly, and both were probably the best salesmen of their time and had a traveling bone.
David had a long and colorful life. He was first an entrepreneur and a marketing genius. His mind was always active, creating new ideas and business formats. He was a man who as his mom said, “loved to dream”, and he was always developing new ideas. David loved nothing more than sharing and talking with others about their lives. He spent many hours with complete strangers, listening to their situations and giving counsel when he felt he could.
He was also a wordsmith: never satisfied with something that he had written until he had spent hours and hours going over the material. His ability to work with numbers was uncanny. I was always amazed how quickly he could do mathematical equations. David’s personality was bigger than life and he has left an emptiness that cannot be filled. May you rest in peace, my husband, protected in Jehovah’s memory until the resurrection.
