For a period of time, he studied under an Italian chef in Columbus and remained in the restaurant industry for 30 years having most recently been employed by Pointe Dining at New Philadelphia.

An avid outdoorsman, Steve enjoyed hunting, shooting, and camping. The place where he found the most comfort and peace was spending time at his family’s campground, Memory Park. Additionally, Steve was a member of the First United Methodist Church at New Philadelphia, a life member of Tusco Rifle Club, and a diehard fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers.

In addition to his father, Steve is survived by his son, Chris Fox of New Philadelphia, Chris’ mother, Kaycee Fox also of New Philadelphia; a brother, John C. (Lisa) Fox, Jr.; a nephew, Sean Fox all of Tallmadge.

Completing the family are numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins and will be especially missed by special cousins, Mark (Tammy) Murphy of Bolivar and Michael (Tracie) Murphy of New Philadelphia and their families.

In addition to his mother, Steve was preceded in death by his maternal and paternal grandparents.

In keeping with Steve’s wishes, cremation will take place. The family will hold a celebration of Steve’s life at a later date. The Linn-Hert-Geib Funeral Home & Crematory at New Philadelphia is handling arrangements.
