Dan Fox was born February 13th, 1954 in Orlando, FL. After a long and difficult battle with his health, Dan finally found peace from his earthly pain and suffering. He left this world April 28th, 2015 in Apopka, FL; the same town he was raised and grew up in.
Since 1971, Dan owned and operated Fox's Nurseries, Inc. In the late 1980's, Dan formed a Landscape division along with his wife Kristi. They worked with several major builders for over 20 years. He was a 32nd degree Master Mason with the Orange Lodge #36 in Apopka.
He was a strong believer in God, as well as a blood donor for many years. And in death he gave the gift of sight, through his organ donation.
Dan was married to the love of his life, Kristi Summers Fox, whom he married in 1975. They spent over 40 year together raising a family, building a business and opening their home to many.
He leaves behind a legacy of three amazing children, Dan Jr, Alicia and Jeremy Fox along with daughter in love, Mindy. Dan was a proud grandfather of 8 very special grandchildren. Stephen 18, Alice 16, Jillian 14, Jacob 14, Sam 11, Rachel 11, Benjamin 7 and Camden 1.
He is also survived by his big sister Donna, two "brothers from another mother" , Doug and Jamie Summers and three beautiful nieces, Holly, Lori and Morgan.
He enjoyed fishing with his buddies and boating with friends and family. He especially enjoyed playing his guitar for friends and singing country music. Dan's favorite country artists were, Merle Haggard and his life long friend John Anderson.
In lieu of flowers, a link to a "Go Fund Me" account for Dan's wife Kristi has been set up. Your modest monetary gift will help the family with funeral and living expenses, until the sale of their home.
Blessings and comfort to you all!
