Mr. Fox was born in Chatham County on October 6, 1949 the son of Elmer Lewis and Betty (Meacham) Fox. Ronnie was a Vietnam Veteran and served our country in the US Air Force for 20 years. During his Air Force career, he discovered his passion for polygraph. After Air Force retirement, he continued using his polygraph expertise to protect our national security. When not "running" polygraph exams, he enjoyed revitalizing the family farm, caring for his small cattle herd, and spending time on his tractor. Apart from the farm, watching ball games and cheering on the Tar Heels were some of his favorite activities. Above all he most valued time spent with "his girls".
