Family and friends celebrated the life of John Fox at a dinner following the 18th annual Cedar Village Golf Classic, which was named for Fox this year.
Son Rick said his father passed along a deep conviction, that “the way you play golf is the way you live life.” For John Fox, who died this year, that meant living a life of honesty, integrity and honor.
Wife Lisa described her late husband as “the rock star of the family“ and “a force of nature.”
Lisa Fox thanked John’s sister, Sally Korkin, for the countless hours she spent helping to put together this year’s event.
Fox was among the golf outing’s founders. Working on it each year was a labor of love for the couple. Fox always looked forward to the Classic, even though – as his family and friends affectionately noted – he was not good at the sport.
Fox was instrumental in devising 18 contests, one for each hole at the Classic, and giving the contests such names as “the drive closest to the lake without going in.” A plaque in his honor will be placed on the 18th fairway at Losantiville Country Club.
The 2017 Cedar Village John Fox Golf Classic, which took place Aug. 10, was the most successful one ever. Proceeds will go to the Cedar Village Benevolence Fund.
