On Monday, August 14, 2023, Troy Fox, a resident at Harlan Health and Rehabilitation Center, passed from this life and entered the kingdom of heaven. He was 45 years old, having been born January 31, 1978, in Harlan County, Ky. He was the son of Ronnie Fox and Vernice Nolan. Troy was preceded in death by his parents. He lived in Harlan County most of his life.
Troy was a graduate of James A. Cawood High School where he was a member of the band. He was a member of Putney Bible Church. He was an avid fan of UK athletics, Cincinnati Reds and Cincinnati Bengals. Troy was a lot of fun to be around, never a dull moment. Always trying to pull a joke on someone. You never knew what he was going to do or how he was going to do it. Comforted to know his earthly suffering is over and he will rejoice and praise God forever.
