Gerald N. Foxx
Published in the Star Tribune on 6/1/2008.
Foxx, Gerald N. (formerly
Fuchs) 63 years old, passed away unexpectedly May 29. Jerry's unconditional
love and support will be forever treasured by his wife, Sheryl; son, Joseph;
daughter, Jennifer (Foxx) Sundberg and her husband Ross and son Blake;
mother, Aurelia Fuchs of Paynesville; and mother-in-law, Jeanne Ahlstrand
of Virginia, MN.
The warmth of his smile and welcome to his home will also be missed by
brothers-in-law, Jon and wife Dorothy Ahlstrand and Jim and wife Tammy
Ahlstrand; sister-in-law, Cindy and husband Mike Lind; and many aunts,
uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.
There were two loves in Jerry's life, his family and sports. Jerry was
a member of the Minnesota Gophers baseball team, in the Minnesota Twins
minor leagues and in the Minnesota Softball Hall of Fame.
His sports accomplishments and passion were considerable but his love
for his family was even greater. Jerry was a tremendous role model as
a son, husband, father, and friend. There was no sacrifice too great to
help his children, Joe and Jenny, achieve their dreams. The baseball coaching
had already begun for 15 month old grandson Blake.
Jerry will always be loved and cherished by his family and all who knew
and enjoyed life with him. Visitation will be held Wednesday, June 4 at
3:00 PM and services will be at 4:00 PM at Washburn- McReavy Funeral Chapel
located at 1400 Mainstreet In Hopkins, MN.
