Derrick Fox was born October 22, 1954 in Starkville. He is survived by one daughter, Shayla Rucker, and sons Tony Hill, Carlos Hill, Derrick Clay, Ardrekus Blair, Michael Calmes, Cassius Belk and Tiwan Belk. He was a faithful member at Christian Faith Church and well-known by his friends and family for his passionate love for the Dallas Cowboys, the Mississippi State Bulldogs, the St. Louis Cardinals and the Starkville Tiger baseball team. Win or lose, he could always be found with a smile on his face.
One of his greatest joys was family gatherings where he spoiled his nieces and nephews Cindy Fox, Tracie Fox, Amaria Strong, Marquan Tate, Malachi Tate, William Nichols Jr. and a special sister-in-law Judy Green Fox.
He is survived by his loving mother Mrs. Annie Mae Fox. Preceded in death by father
Tommie James Fox, three sisters Dianne Fox, Patricia Henderson and Martha Ann Scales.
Brothers Tony Fox, Steven Fox, Stacey Fox and a host of family, friends, nieces, nephews, neighbors and grand-children.
The family requests your prayers and support â€” and extends a special thanks to Byron Norman at the Starkville Daily News and the people of the Bradley and Sturgis communities.
At the end of the day, I will be looking down on my special loved ones.
