  1. Preceded in death by 1st wife Elizabeth Ann Fuchs. His mother’s maiden name was Cidonia Kuhn. Great grandchildren Aiden Kidd and Amelia Adams (children of granddaughter Megan (Fuchs) Adams. Aiden Hayes is a great grandson (son of Timothy Hayes), Kaylinn McElligott is a great granddaughter (daughter of Casey McElligott). I would appreciate if the obit could be updated with the above information.

  2. As a child Mr.Fuchs took me and his son Merl for a plane ride that I will never forget. I once saw him driving a big old white caddy dressed as Santa Claus during Christmas. Those were the days that Mr. Fuchs was our neighbor in South Augusta. He loved life and his neighbor as himself.
    My sincere condolences to the Fuchs family.

  3. Dear Lee,

    May God Bless,
