Garrett Reilly Fox Obituary
June 17, 1991 - Sept 5, 2014

Last Friday, September 5, 2014, the sun lost a little of its brightness when Garrett Fox slipped unexpectedly from this mortal existence into the arms of his Savior. The world may not have noticed this amazing loss but those who knew Garrett felt the world shudder and stumble at his loss. Garrett was the rare boy who made lifelong friends with almost everyone he came to know. His influence was far-reaching and real and was something he did not realize because it came to him so naturally. Our hearts have been torn out with his passing but are healing with the memories of his joyous, outgoing and loving personality. Those of us who knew him are among the luckiest of people.
Garrett served selflessly on two of life's most important missions, God and country. He served and loved the people of Brazil as an LDS missionary, and at the time of his passing was serving in the US Army and, only two weeks ago, won the Soldier of the Month Award at Fort Polk.
Garrett is survived by his loving and grateful parents, Laurie Barton Fox and Randy Fox (Kris); by his adoring sisters, Lindsay Hardcastle (JI), Heather Flannery (Jerry), Caitlin Pruitt (Austin) and Hayley Fox; Step-Sisters Amber Chavez (Javier) and Courtnee Rosevear (Spencer); by his grandfather, Frank Fox, his grandmother, Katherine Hekking; and by cousins, aunts and uncles too numerous to mention; and by nieces and nephews who loved and adored him. Preceding him in death were his older sister, Taysha Fox, and his cousin, Brynn Barton.
For those who wish to pay their respects a viewing will be held Friday, September 12, 2014 from 6:00 to 8:00 PM at McDougal Funeral Home, 4330 S Redwood Road, Taylorsville, Utah. Funeral services will be held Saturday, September 13, 2014 at 11:00 AM at the Herriman Utah South Stake Center, 14550 S Juniper Crest, Herriman, Utah. A viewing will be held prior to the service from 9:30 to 10:45 AM. Interment will be at Salt Lake City Cemetery.

I like to play football, skateboard, and play Nintendo.  I am 11 years old and go to Oakridge Elementary.  Oakridge is a good school.  I am in 6th grade.  Math is my favorite subject because Mr. Matsen teaches Math.  He is a cool teacher.  I like to read mystery books also.
