Bob Fox


Bob Fox

Robert C. Fox II, 69, of Marin County, California passed away unexpectedly on August 29, 2021. Robert 'Bob' was a Marin County native growing up in Larkspur, attending Redwood High School, where he played football and graduated college at Saint Mary's College. Later he pursued a career in the fire service as a dedicated Fire Chief of Corte Madera. In his spare time, Bob enjoyed spending time with his close friends and family. Some of his passions were hunting, fishing, and golfing. In his later years Bob spent most of his time working on his ranch in Oregon, where he found peace and serenity being surrounded by nature. One of Bob's biggest accomplishments was having his three beloved children. His children will tell you not only was he their father, but also their best friend. Bob and his children were inseparable. He was his children's superhero. He was full of wisdom and taught his three children the wonders of life and surrounding them with unconditional love and support. Through his children's ups and downs, he was always there to pick them back up and teach them how to persevere and find joy in the beauty of life. Bob will be remembered for his strength, confidence, and the legacy he leaves behind in his children. Bob is survived by his three children, Elliot Michael, Christian Daniel, and Payton Belle Fox, as well as his dog, Max.

Bob and I grew up together. From kindergarten to the end, we remained good friends. I wish he didn't leave so soon. I miss him, but I don't think I'll ever forget him. RIP Bubba...

One thing I remember about Bob was how kind he was to me and others. I was having one of those horrendous freshman days. I sat next to Bob and met him he had roaring with laughter in 5 minutes...

Bob my good friend, What a absolutly Fabulous, Fantastic life we shared together, such great memories... Bob, Remember when you sold me my first car, it was your cool green 1957 Belair Chevy, it was already all jacked-up and ready to go...You used the money to buy a brand new shiny red & white 1969 GTO with a Hemi, and it had a great 8 track tape deck, it was by far the fastest car at Redwood High! Bob remember cutting school to go out to go surfing, you loved surfing more than the girls. Bob you always scared the hell out of us boy's the way you drove your fast GTO around Mt. Tam's sharp curves, you even passed other cars on the curve's Crazy! There are so many other great time's we shared when you worked for my Dad at his gas station in Sausalito, we loved working on our cars together...oh well I could go on and on, but we will catch up together soon,,, I'm not getting any younger!...Happy Surfing My Friend...Love & Miss Ya
