Obituary

Anthony Wayne Fox was born May 5th, 1957 to Harry and Donna Fox.  He grew up in Bell Gardens, California and was one of five siblings. 

Those who knew Anthony recognized his unique ability to love - and love with his whole heart.  He was a single father who raised three boys on his own, promising to never abandon them and committed to always being there.   

Once he raised his family, he had a very successful fifteen-year career as a big-rig truck driver.  Long-hauling at first and working the local ports of Seattle during the latter part of his career.  In all his years as a truck driver, he never had an accident.  From the beginning to the end of his career, it was as if truck driving was in his nature.  He enjoyed the freedom of truck driving and not being cooped up in an office. 

Some of Anthony’s hobbies were fishing and shooting.  He was a southpaw by nature but learned to shot very well with both hands.  He also learned how to make knives – the kind that would last a lifetime and were unique in nature. 

Anthony also enjoyed trying out new restaurants and partaking in the latest movies.  He enjoyed a variety of movies but his all-time favorites were sci-fi and action packed films.  Being a family man, when he remarried and had another son, he always wanted to be around his family.  By nature, his overall disposition was loving with his whole heart and wanting to be loved – these qualities defined him.

He lost a long-battle with liver failure on April 10, 2019.  Anthony was a believer in the Lord since he was a little boy.  He one time had an incredible experience as a very young boy where God showed Anthony that he was not alone – that experience carried him through all his years.  He was deeply loved and will be truly missed by his family and close friends, who recognized his unique heart and loving spirit!
