A celebration of John’s life will be held at 2 p.m. on Sunday, July 17th at the VFW Post 7460, Sandy Hill Rd., in Cambridge.

Rose and Tom Carroll Dear Irma, Kandy, Logan and Bob. words cannot describe how heart-broken we are over johnny's passing. We loved him dearly. We will never forget how you both took us newly weds in and nurtured us. At least now, he is at peace. He was something and there will be nobody else like him. I can remember when he would wake us all up at 2;00am to eat donuts. He called us every Christmas morning for 53 years. It will seem funny this year not to pick up the phone and hear "Hey, Johnny Fox here, Merry Christmas from the Foxes" and then he would tell us all the stuff they bought for Kandy and Logan. He will be sorely missed by us. Rest in Peace Johnny. 06/02/2011 Dick and Barb Ensor Our thoughts and prayers go out to John's family. We have so many fond memories of John. We have lost a dear friend and will truly miss him. 06/01/2011
