Kenny DeWayne Fox was born February 28‚ 1973. He was raised by his loving grandparents‚ Ray Lenard and Tommie Sue Fox; his mother‚ Gail Ann Maness; and father‚ Thomas Lee Maness‚ all of Lexington. As a young child‚ Kenny was mischievous.
In high school Kenny was a football player and the class clown. This was something he carried throughout his life‚ always making you laugh with his humor and always with a smile on his face.
Kenny married his high school sweetheart‚ Deana Renee Moore‚ at the young age of 18. They started a family. ‘Like two sparrows in a hurricane‚ trying to find their way. The world said they’d never make it‚ but love said they will.’
Kenny has three sons‚ Michael Lee (20)‚ Dylan DeWayne (14)‚ and Ethan Ray Fox (3). Kenny loved watching his boys play football‚ both in the backyard and on the field. If he ever got started talking about one‚ you’d better be ready to stay and visit‚ because he was one proud daddy and loved to talk about his boys.
Kenny believed in serving his community. He was driven to bring comfort to those he met daily and was quick to put his personal agenda aside to help others. He was involved in teaching children about fire safety within the educational system of Decatur County and was involved with the underprivileged children during the holiday season.
Kenny was a fire chief for Decaturville‚ chief of Decatur County Fire Department‚ Station #3 and Decatur County Rescue Squad. He was vice president of the PBA Board in law enforcement‚ a sergeant with the Decatur County Sheriff’s Office‚ and the chief of police for the City of Decaturville. He attended the post-certification law enforcement academy in Donelson‚ Tennessee.
Kenny drove people to give their best in giving his.
Don’t let your past define you. You define your past. ~The Legend of Kenny Fox
