Obituary

Ronald "Ron" Lee Fox, age 86, passed away peacefully following a brief battle with cancer on Saturday, July 24, 2021 at his assisted living facility in Gilbert, Arizona. Ron was born on September 6, 1934 in Anderson, Indiana to Agnes Ruth Moystner, and raised by his grandparents, Leona & Leroy Bartel. As a youth, Ronnie worked to raise money selling stamps door to door to support the war effort. He graduated from Anderson High School in 1953 and began his working career at Delco-Remy. He was a master mason since 1956 affiliated with Mount Moriah Lodge in Anderson.

In the late 1950's, he moved to Southern California to begin a 30+ year career in Aerospace at Rockwell International and Hughes Aircraft. While working at Hughes in the 1980's, he met the love of his life, his beloved Bee. In retirement, they moved to Harrison, Arkansas in 1993 where they lived for 27 years. They traveled the world together, including all over Europe, Israel, and most especially they loved frequently travelling to the Islands of Hawaii. They also toured all over North America in their motorhome meeting many wonderful new friends along the way.

After 37 years of marriage and 30 years of blessed retirement living and travel, Bee D. Fox, age 84, passed away after a sudden and brief illness on October 13, 2020. Ron missed her completely every remaining day of his life. Together, they loved their church, Restoration LIFE Fellowship, in the Batavia area of Harrison, AR. The Fox family thanks all of their pastors and many friends at church who supported them and our family greatly during their final year.

Ron is survived by his four children, Shizandra Fox, Rhonda Trueblood, Richard Fox & Robert Fox, eight grandchildren and 18 great grandchildren.

Services for the family are being conducted at Brown Butz Diedring Funeral Home in Anderson on Friday, August 13, 2021 at 1pm, followed by a committal service at Anderson Memorial Park to follow.

Visitation will be an hour prior to services at the funeral home.
