Barry Lee Fox, 74, of Aberdeen, passed peacefully at St. Joseph of the Pines on Tuesday, July 20th.
Born in Harrisburg, PA in 1947, he was the son of the late Herbert and Anna Fox. After his high school graduation, Barry started his career repairing vehicles. On Nov. 5, 1967 he married Lois Jean and in 1970 the two moved to Southern Pines. Barry continued his trade after relocating, but at heart, he was an animal lover. He had a soft spot for the pets he took home and strays that he would feed and care for as they came around the shop. Barry received the Lord as his Saviour as a young adult and had been a member of Calvary Memorial Church in Southern Pines.
Barry was the loving husband of Lois Jean Fox. He was the father of Jeremy Lee Fox, wife Kim, and Jennifer Lynne Fox Blanchard, husband Louis. He is survived by his 8 grandchildren: Bradley, Luke, Jonathan, Matthew, Alaina and Kodey Blanchard and William and Lindsey Fox. He is also survived by his sister Susan Gray. Barry also leaves behind his beloved canine buddy, Ginger.
