GLADE FOX, 65, of Taylorsville, North Carolina, died at his home on August 15, 1993 of colon cancer. Glade was a collector of small gas engines and was an active member of the Carolina Fly-Wheelers Engine Club of Boone, North Carolina. He was also retired from Carolina Glove.

Glade was a man who loved life and having a good time. He enjoyed auctions, eating, traveling, and finding a bargain, especially in antiques. Glade was liked by all who knew him, was a friend to many, and was the kind of person others sought out for advice.

Glade loved his family and was totally devoted to them. He is survived by his wife, Marie; three sons; a daughter; and six grandchildren. Those of us who knew him are better for having known him, and he will be greatly missed for a very long time.
