Robert Fox

September 12, 1956 — December 12, 2021

Miesville

Robert ”Bob” Othmar Fox, age 65, passed away suddenly on Sunday, December 12, at Mayo Clinic Hospital, St. Mary’s Campus in Rochester, MN. Bob was born on Sept. 12, 1956 in Red Wing, the son of Othmar and Betty (Jensen) Fox.

Bob is survived by his loving wife of 41 years, Julie (Brotzler) Fox; his son Justin, daughter Aimee (Tony) Flom, son Ryan (Madisen); granddaughters Aubrey and Madi; brothers Jim (Susan), Ray (Shawn), and Marty (Sarah); sister-in-law Debbie Fox; many nieces, nephews, cousins, great-nieces and great-nephews, and beloved friends. He was preceded in death by his parents Othmar and Betty, daughter Natalie, and brothers Albert and Michael.

Bob was a third-generation farmer in Miesville. He greatly loved and appreciated the land. He enjoyed fishing and hunting and time spent at his home away from home, his camper in Cumberland, and his get-away time in Florida. Bob had a great sense of humor, often telling stories while gathered around a campfire at the lake. He was a favorite of the many children in his life – quick to tell a joke or help them cast out a fishing line. Bob had the gift of hospitality and people were quick to gather with him, and slow to leave.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions to the Miesville Fire Department would be greatly appreciated.

Visitation will be on Friday, December 17, from 4-7 pm, at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, 23955 Nicolai Ave, Miesville, MN 55033. There will be a rosary service at 7 pm.
