Born in Perry Twp., Clarion Co. on Nov. 30, 1933, he was son of late Claude and Ailene Conner Fox. A graduate of the former Parker High School, he then enlisted in the United States Army during the Korean Conflict era. He served with Armored Divisions in Germany during much of his enlistment.

He began hauling for a Clarion based company, and then hauled out of Blasdell, NY pulling train trailers through Canada into Michigan. From there he hauled out of Anaheim, CA. for Keystone Lines, criss-crossing the United States until ill health forced his retirement. He lived at Country Springs for a number of years, and was “King of Country” there in 2013. Dean attended both the United Methodist and Church of God (Park Hill) churches at West Freedom. Surviving are three sisters: Joan McCall of Perry Two., Parker, Norma Switzer and June Fox, both of Anderson, IN.; number of nieces and nephews.
