“Laclede County lost another great law enforcement officer this week. Sgt. John Fox passed away. His wife died not too long ago and John has been in bad health for some time. He was one of MIlan’s best friends and barber shop customer so he will be leaving to go to the visitation this afternoon. He was a motorcycle guy and after he retired he let his hair grow out and took a lot of ribbing from his fellow trooper buddies, but he was a great guy and trooper and husband and dad – good part of Lebanon’s history. Everybody who knew him will miss him so much,” said Joan Hart in a posting on Memories of Laclede County MO

Memorials may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association and may be left at the funeral home.
