Veterinarian.  Musician.  Outdoorsman.  Songwriter.  Cowboy.  Traveler.  Carpenter.  Aggie.  Son.  Friend.  Organ Donor.


Lanse Truman Fox was born May 9, 1986, to Don and Joan Fox. He was raised in Kaufman, Texas, where he graduated from Kaufman High School in 2004.

That fall, he enrolled at Texas A&M University pursuing a degree in Animal Science.  

Lanse made the most of his time at Texas A&M, whether it was as a Fish Camp Counselor, a member of FarmHouse Fraternity, or playing music and enjoying times with his many friends. While in College Station, Lanse also worked at a sale barn, as a cowboy, and at Kurten Vet Clinic. 

After graduating from Texas A&M in 2009, Lanse pursued his lifelong dream of becoming a veterinarian when he attended Ross University’s School of Veterinary Medicine in Saint Kitt’s and Nevis in the Caribbean. Though nervous about his first international flight on his way to the island, Lanse soon made St.Kitts home and experienced more adventure and friendship, finding time in his studies to make memories while hiking, boating and getting involved in intramural sports. 


In 2013, Lanse completed his doctorate of veterinary medicine at Auburn University in Alabama. He returned home to Texas and began working at the same vet clinic where his journey started - the Kaufman Vet Center. There Dr. Fox practiced medicine, learning Spanish to better communicate with his patient families, and spending lost time with his beloved mama.  

Lanse passed away March 8, 2014, in a Dallas hospital. As an organ donor, in death Lanse saved the lives of other people, continuing his legacy of making people's lives around him better.
