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.
