Marcus Fox, age 71, of Waleska, GA passed away Wednesday, June 16, 2021 at Northside Hospital Cherokee. Marcus was on staff with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) for many years and served as Chaplain for the Cherokee High football team. He had a huge heart for missions working with various local ministries, and taking supplies to Appalachia, particularly Kentucky. A former football player, Marcus used that experience to mentor numerous young people. Most importantly, though, was his love for his Lord. Whether speaking at a sports event, leading youth camps, teaching Sunday School or playing his mandolin with his bluegrass friends, he always had that smile and love that came from the joy in his heart.
