EASTON — Jonathan A Fox, a lifelong resident of Oxford, Maryland passed away quietly at hospice on July 11th, 2019 surrounded by his loving family. Jon was born in Easton on April 20, 1963. He attended Easton High School and then the University of Maryland.
Jon was a natural born salesman. He started selling cars when he was young and worked his way up through Easton Ford to be the general manager. He then went on to get his real estate license where he worked with Benson Mangold for 15 years until the time of his death. He was an active member of the Oxford Fire Department for many years where he served as Chief for three years. Jon loved the fire department and would spend every morning with his fireman brothers drinking coffee and “getting the scoop” on happenings in Oxford. Jon could always be seen either riding his scooter around town talking with friends or on his beloved boat, Sea Fox 2, which was named after his late father’s boat, the Sea Fox.
Jon was loved by so many and touched countless people’s lives. If anyone ever needed any information about how to get something or where to find someone to do it, he would be the one they called. Jon would always find a way to help people get what they needed. His life will forever be cherished in the lives of his family and friends.
He is survived by his mother, Nancy Fox, his wife of 12 years, Terri Fox, his daughters, Katie Fox, Annie Lerian, (Wyatt), and Emily Fox. He had 3 beautiful grandchildren, Piper, Wyatt and Owen. He also had 2 stepsons, Cody and Christian. He had two loving siblings, Curt (Robin, Will and Sam) and Gretchen (Dave and Lexi). He was preceded in death by his father, Ronnie Fox.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Talbot Hospice and/or Oxford Fire Company.
