Timothy J. “Tim” Fox, age 70, of Chilton died on his mother’s birthday, Saturday, July 3, 2021 at Century Oaks in Appleton.  He was born September 16, 1950 in Fond du Lac, son of the late George & Ruth Ann (Peot) Fox.  

As a Vietnam Veteran, Tim proudly and honorably served as a Corporal in the United States Marine Corps and a Sergeant and Jungle Expert in the United States Army. Following his services in the Military, he worked as an over-the-road trucker where he traveled through most of the United States.

He was an avid reader and history buff, always reading about the many events in history.  He had a passion for listening to good “trucker music” like classic rock-n-roll which he would crank up loud in his truck throughout his travels. Tim was known as a talented artist who could draw and sketch anything and everything.

Tim loved animals, especially cats and dogs.  He was well known to be an “animal whisperer”, and cared for the well being of many stray cats in his neighborhood who continually kept him company.  He would enjoy the quietness and relaxation of bird watching, especially taking note of the cardinals that would come through.  Of all of the animals in his life, Tim had a special spot in his heart for his dog, Brutus, who was his best friend.  

Tim’s outgoing personality didn’t stop with the furry friends in his life, he looked forward to conversations with close friends, and new friends that he met out and about, or on his walks both summer and winter.  Above all else, Tim cherished moments spent with his children, and especially his grandchildren because they all brought so much joy to his life.  

Survivors include his children: Johanna (Sean) Tackett, Rachel (Russell) Gahagan;  4 grandchildren: Jayla Tackett, Elyse, Russell II, & Lilly Gahagan; the mother of his children: Lisa (Paul) Roberts; and 2 siblings: Mary Jo (Clark) Jones & Cynthia (Gerry) Riesterer.  He is further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

Tim was preceded in death by his parents; and his siblings: David Fox, Bill Fox, Mike Fox, George Fox, Jr. & Denise Fox.  

Funeral service will be at 7:00 pm on Monday, July 12, 2021 at the Wieting Family Funeral Home (411 W. Main St.) in Chilton.  Burial will be in the St. Mary Catholic Cemetery in Chilton.  Friends may call at the Wieting Family Funeral Home from 5:00 pm until 7:00 pm on Monday, July 12, 2021.

Johanna your dad was such a great and sweet man. I got to know him when he lived below Crystal. When he had moved he had asked her if she would continue to feed the stray cats that always showed up. He will be very happy to know that she has continued on with his legacy and every year there are more little kittens. He always had a smile for you.and a story. Rest in peace Tim!
