William R. Fox
- July 6, 2018

Bob was born to Robert and Helen (Davis) Fox June 11, 1955.  He attended the Fruitdale School and continued his education at Belle Fourche High School.

He was active in the family business, Fox Honey, in addition to various other jobs.

He was married November 9, 1979, to Shawn Boyd.  Two children were born to this marriage, Rhys and Brittannie.

Bob found his true passion when he tried gold prospecting with a friend.  He sought work in the mining field and was employed by the Gilt Edge and Golden Reward Mines.  He began a lifelong study of geology, topography, and Black Hills mining history.

He was married November 25, 1988, to Teresa (Lesselyoung) Miles, who shared the prospecting passion and together they began pursuit of the elusive gold!

Bob generously shared his knowledge by mentoring prospectors of all ages for the remainder of his life.  His true reward was the sparkle in the eyes of the “greenhorn” on finding their first speck of gold.

William R. Fox, known to most as Bob, died Sunday, July 4, 2018, surrounded by family and friends at Rapid City Regional Hospital.

Bob is survived by his wife, Teresa; two children, Rhys (Patricia) Fox and Brittannie Wallace-Fox; two step-daughters, Amanda Hockett and Kristina Miles; two brothers, Tim (Wanda) Fox and Chris (Krinda) Fox; ten grandchildren, Robey, Dezirea, Tessia, Zia, Alex, Leah, Lucas, Tanis, Aiden, and Rylee; and numerous nieces, nephews, aunts, and uncles.

He was preceded in death by his parents.

Visitation will be one hour prior to services at Kinkade Funeral Chapel on Saturday, July 7.

Funeral services will be held at 2:00 p.m. Saturday, July 7, 2018, at Kinkade Funeral Chapel in Sturgis with Pastor John Tesnow officiating.  Burial will follow at the Whitewood Cemetery.
