James Edward Fox

James Edward Fox "Jim", Age 72, long time resident of Nevis, Minnesota passed away April 15, 2017. He is survived by his wife, Gwen Fox, his son Steven (Paula) Cree, two grandsons, Steven and Michael, two stepchildren, Stefanie Johnson and Scott Johnson, and two nieces, Jennifer and Jeanie.

Jim was born in Des Moines, Iowa on March 29, 1945. He had one brother, Joseph, predeceased him. Joe and Jim were inseparable and loved to hunt and fish together.

Jim was a union plumber by trade, but a master of all tasks. Upon retirement, he was a real estate agent and ran an antique shop before building the home in Minnesota. Jim was recognized as a Volunteer Sheriff-for-Lake-Patrol of Third Crow Wing Lake. Additionally, he served as Treasurer for Crow Wing Lake County for a number of years.

Jim was a wonderful soul and would put everybody before himself. He loved to fish, and had a true love for nature. He saw beauty in so many things. The residents of his community will surely miss him. He truly was a beautiful, selfless person. When the Aspen leaves drop each year, and line the road with "gold" he will be remembered forever.

Services will be held 11 AM Saturday, April 22, 2017 at the Jones-Pearson Funeral Home, Park Rapids, MN. Visitation will begin one hour prior to the service. To leave on line condolences please visit
