September 29, 1960 – March 27, 2011
Jack Fox, was called home by our Creator on March 27, 2011 at the age of 50 years.
Jack was a real cowboy at heart. At a young age he rodeoed in the events, of saddle bronc, calf roping and team roping. After retiring from rodeo due to illness, he continued his passion to ride, hunt, train and breed horses and chase wild horses through the wilderness. Living close to nature and horseback through the mountains was his version of heaven on earth.
