Funeral Services Set for St. Louis Post-Dispatch Journalist
ST. LOUIS (AP) - Funeral services will be Friday for Jim Fox, a longtime columnist for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and the South Suburban Journals.
Fox, of Affton, died Sunday at age 91.
The Post-Dispatch reports that the funeral will be at 11:30 a.m. Friday at Zion United Methodist Church in St. Louis County. A visitation at the church begins at 10 a.m.
Fox was known for his folksy columns. He worked for the Post-Dispatch for 33 years and continued writing regular columns for nearly 10 years after his retirement.
His column then moved to the South Suburban Journals and continued until his death. His final column in the Wednesday edition looks back on the fire trucks of his youth.
