Graham Alexander Fox, 30, of Carmel Indiana, died Thursday April 28, 2022, in a single car accident in Fishers, Indiana.
At age 15, Graham was introduced to drugs which led to a long battle with substance abuse and addiction. At 23, he entered long term addiction recovery, and his time there brought him into a years-long period of sobriety where he came into his own.
In this season, he discovered a passion for the outdoors and adventure. While living and working at Windward Way Recovery, he pioneered the creation of an Adventure Program. Through this initiative, he was responsible for planning and leading climbing expeditions in Joshua Tree National Forest, hiking and camping trips in Sequoia and Tahoe, and ski trips at Big Bear. As the guide for young men in recovery, he helped them connect deeply with one another, challenge themselves, learn new skills and gain vision for their life following treatment.
Graham loved music, technology, fly fishing, rock climbing, firearms, weightlifting, and his various pets. In recent years, Graham taught himself woodworking, welding, powder coating, aerial photography, and software coding. He had an incredible curiosity that enabled him to learn deeply about subjects too varied to list.
We will forever remember his wonderful grin, the mischievous twinkle in his eyes, the way he made us belly laugh, his straight talk, his brilliant mind, and tender heart. He brought life into every room he entered. He was dearly and deeply loved and will be greatly missed.
He is survived by his parents, Phil and Kathie Fox, his brother, Gavin Fox (Lauren), his sister, Natalie Palmer (Chris), nieces Isla Palmer, Claire Fox, Serena Palmer and Blaine Fox, girlfriend Brenda Lopez and many aunts, uncles, and cousins.
