Henry “Hylon” Fox
Aug. 25, 1938 to April 6, 2021
Henry “Hylon” Fox went home to be with Jesus early Tuesday morning April 6, 2021. He was born August 25, 1938 to the late William Austin Fox and Hettie Bell Harris Fox. He attended Oak Hill School. He was a member of Poarch Chapel Missionary Methodist Church and served many years on the board. He was also a member of the Men’s Sunday School Class and loved overseeing the upkeep of the church building. He was a building contractor and a skilled carpenter. He enjoyed spending time with family, especially the grandchildren and great grandchildren. He loved fishing and playing horseshoes with the church. He was always willing to lend a helping hand or to give to those in need. Anyone who sat down with him for a few minutes, learned about Jesus. His infectious smile will truly be missed.
He is survived by his wife, Betty Crawford Fox and his three daughters, Karen Smith (Keith), Terry Snead and Lisa McIntosh (Chip). He has five grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, siblings and his sons, Thomas Austin. Fox and Wilbur Lee Henson
