SCRANTON – The Fox Family recently donated a hand painted poster created by their deceased
son, Kevin Fox, to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeastern Pennsylvania. Kevin Fox was a
formed Club member where he spent most of his time in the Club’s Art Center.
The poster was originally created in 1978 at the Club’s Unit where Kevin spent most of his time.
Now the very same poster is located at the Boys & Girls Clubs of NEPA located at 609 Ash
Street in Scranton.
Paul Kosiba, vice president, portfolio management, PNC Bank, a former Club member said,
“Kevin was an extremely bright kid at every level and especially a talented artist. Everyone
wanted to be his friend, and everyone truly admired his abilities. We were friends since
kindergarten. We were together for so many memories, the World's Fair in New York City; in
the classroom together at William Prescott School the day JFK was assassinated: and as man first
landed on the moon. We came from a great neighborhood in the upper hill section. On Saturdays,
the crew would walk to the Boys Club at Adams and Mulberry. We were all lucky to have
Kevin as a friend. I know he is dearly missed by all his childhood friends.”
According to Tricia DiBiasi Thomas, Boys & Girls Clubs of NEPA executive director, “We are
very thankful for the Fox Family’s donation. Now Kevin’s talent will forever grace the lobby of
our Club and he will forever be remembered.”
The Boys & Girls Clubs of NEPA recently honored Claire and Jack Fox for their donation to the
Club during its annual Thanksgiving dinner held at the Club. Pictured (l-r) are Joe Migliorino,
