Fox served longer in the Statehouse — nearly 23 years — than any other Butler County lawmaker and served for a decade as a Butler County commissioner. However, he pleaded guilty in 2011 to wire fraud and filing a false tax return and served four years in federal prison.
And now, he and his family are putting their faith in God as he goes through his recent medical issues.
“You put it all in God’s hands, and that’s all you can do,” Fox said before his surgery. “I just pray that he lets me hang around for a little longer.”
