My condolences to the Fox family and the Vergennes Fire Department of Illinois. FireFighter Michael Fox, 37, a 20 year veteran of the Vergennes Fire Department, died Friday February 2, 2007. Mike suffered a heart attack while operating the fire department ambulance responding to an EMS call. He was able to pull the vehicle to the side of the road safely. His partner performed CPR and another ambulance transported them to St. Joseph Memorial Hospital in Murphysboro where he was pronounced dead. I have created a permanent memorial for Michael on my website. More news, information, and photos can be found at:

If there is any additional information or photos you would like added to this memorial, please don't hesitate to contact me.
