I will never forget growing up in Richmond Hill with our entire family in one house. I have such fond memories of all those Sunday dinners Nana cooked. I am glad we reconnected these past few months. Your brother Frank and my mom are devastated. We know you are in Heaven, a better place, free from pain and reunited with your son Greg. My sincere condolences to my cousin Abbey, Rest In Peace Uncle Jimmy. May you find comfort, peace and light in Heaven. “Love you kiddo”Lisa Dempsey , Oceanside, NY

Sending all of my love and prayers to the Fox family. “Mr.fox,” as I’ve known him since high school, was the kindest man and I will never forget how he welcomed me into his home when I found my first high school friend in Abby. I feel incredibly grateful
To have known him and spent time with him. Wishing Abby and the family all the strength. Love you.
Jim was a great friend to me. We shared lots of time at the Dog Park off New Scotland Ave. He always had great advice,especially regarding house projects. Abby was his greatest love ,so proud of her. Oscar as we called him, as the Mayor Dog of the dog Park was much fun everybody just loved him . He will miss his grandaddy for sure. I loved this gentle man ,I lost my friend. My love to Abby!Donna McCann, Albany,NY
I was very saddened to learn about Jim’s passing. Such a special guy, always willing to share his knowledge and help people out. Jim was a rare and classic guy that I wish we could all be more like. He educated me a ton, and consistently supported my advancement while we worked together. I’m very grateful for the times I spent with Jim, he was a wonderful teacher and valued friend to have. I remember more than once saying to him “Thanks man, Jim how can I get you back?”, and Jim would say “Just try to help the next guy out.” Will do Jim! –My only regret is not having pushed you more to write a book-What a life. He loved very much his children and spoke about them all the time. My thoughts will especially be with you all. …Miss you Jim!!Levi Reavey, Beacon, NY
Dear Abby and family,
We were very sorry to hear about Jim’s passing. We worked with him for many years at the Department of Public Service and remember him as a very professional, dedicated and knowledgeable public servant. He was always an advocate for the consumers of New York State and we know you must be very proud of his many achievements.
You are in our thoughts and prayers.
Pat and Joe Grillo

I can bet that you & Stan are having a grand old time catching up and laughing your butts off!
You guys went all the way back to Queens and you can never take the city out of the boy/man can you?
I’ll bet Stan was waiting for you with a beer in his hand!
Enjoy catching up AND remembering to take some time out to let us know you are still with us-
