Herbert Nelson Fox went to be with the Lord on May 24th 2012 in Claremore, OK. Born to Henry and Melissa (Tiger) Fox on February 6th 1930 in Kellyville, OK, Herb attended the Euchee Mission Boarding School during his early life. Herb served honorably in the United Srates Army and Air Force from 1949 until being honorably discharged from the Air Force on February 27th 1956. During this time he met his wife Martha Wilson, marrying her on August 5th 1952. Herb was the proud father of ten children during his time on this Earth. The majority of his time was spent coaching his sons on the Sapulpa Racers as they played fast pitch softball and with the Sapulpa Hawks in basketball. He was well known throughout the state for his teams. Herb was a fixture on the sidelines for decades and was able to watch his grandchildren take the place of his sons as time went on.
