On February 27, 2020, surrounded by family, Holland Nile Fox, 79, of Rockbridge, Ohio, left this world and its cares to take his final journey and receive his eternal reward.
He was born December 28, 1940, in the beautiful hills of Victor, West Virginia. He was proceeded in death by his parents, Holland Randolph Fox and Willa (McGraw) Fox; his foster brother, Johnny Kincaid; and an infant sister. He is survived by his beloved wife and constant companion of 60 years, Dolores Jean Fox; his three children, Doug Fox of Rockbridge, Ohio, Janie Nelson of Canal Winchester, Ohio and Rhonda (Curt) Cable of Glouster, Ohio; a brother Sam (Patricia) Fox of Rittman, Ohio; 7 grandchildren; 13 great grandchildren; and 16 nieces and nephews.
Holland worked as a street superintendent for the Village of Baltimore for 23 years and also as vice president and general manager for W. G. Fairfield Company for 13 years, but the most important work of his life was loving his Lord and serving Him by being a faithful and loving father, husband and mentor. As a founding member of Faith Freewill Baptist Church, he served in many capacities over the years including: deacon, Sunday school teacher, youth leader, and church bus driver.
Holland was much loved and well respected. His quiet gentle ways will be missed by all who were touched by his life.
