Below is his obituary and funeral arrangements as provided by the family.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Jimmy's family.

Retired Lieutenant Fire Fighter/Paramedic James “Jimmy” Fox passed away Friday April 23, 2021 after a brief illness. He is survived by his wife Cecilia, brother Richard Gary &wife Pam, His sons Gary Paul and Tom & wife Gloria, Stepchildren Colleen & husband David and Curtis along with 5 grandchildren Ana, Ashley, John William, Sara and David Jr. as well as many nieces and nephews. He was born in Muncy PA and was preceded in death by his parents Robert Lewis Fox and Mary Elizabeth John Fox.

Jimmy was a dedicated caring compassionate loving husband, father, uncle, grandfather and brother who’s family extended far beyond a traditional family. As a retired Firefighter Paramedic in Prince Georges County, Maryland, he had many other brothers and sisters that he worked beside who are too mourning his loss. As one of the first groups of paramedics in Prince Georges County he served with honor and retired in 1992. Jim was responsible for the iconic heart beat rhythm striping of medic units in Prince Georges County. Jim also worked as an Open Heart Tech and never being slowed by retirement went on to be Fleet Manager for the City of Frederick Police Department. In his commitment to serve he was also a US Army Veteran having served in Korea in the late 60’s to early 70’s.

He loved his Cocker Spaniels and will be missed by Ziva, Ducky and Zeke.

Ever the classic car enthusiast he enjoyed rebuilding Street Rods and Classic Cars as well as showing them and was active for many years with the Catoctin Mountain Street Rod Association. His pride and Joy was his 1936 Ford Sedan Delivery. He was an avid bowler and enjoyed fishing, hiking, jazz music, and James Patterson books. He loved Halloween and would proudly dress up in theme costumes created by his wife and would enjoy trying to sneak up and scare her with the masks. He never missing the opportunity to find humor in the little things. He was a consummate collector of model fire trucks and model cars as well as fox themed paintings, figurines, and other collectables. He loved his pony tail and would say his hair receded because of its weight.

A caring and compassionate man, who would even in death appreciate that in lieu of flowers that you donate instead to the Frank Colea Benevolent Fund, St Jude, and the Salvation Army.
