Landen Ray Fox was born on February 1, 2006, to Randi Cole and the late Darnell “Pokey” Fox in Havre, MT. He carries the Nakoda name, Ta To Gona Hokshina, which in English means “Antelope Boy”, given to him by his late great grandfather, Leslie KillEagle.
Landen attended school in Dodson. He was a sophomore and had been looking forward to his basketball season where he could showcase his hard work he put in during the off season. Landen made friends everywhere he went, and had friends in every grade at school. He enjoyed his classmates and they enjoyed his sense of humor and “chill” demeanor. His first words were “whassup” with a lip point and nod to everyone, which carried throughout his years as his greeting when you entered his presence. He loved spending time with his cousins to just hang out. He was just like his mother. They enjoyed pushing each other’s buttons, yet they adored each other. His love for his mother was extremely apparent, their bond was so close that he called her “bruh”. He enjoyed spending his time playing on his X-box with his cousins Cash KillEagle and Dutch Werk.
Landen was one of the best branding hands around. He attended his Uncle Wes and Joey’s brandings every summer. He also made it to all local brandings with his cousins Cash and Rope. He loved ranch work and cowboy boots. This young man loved his family (his momma, brothers Kelley and Leslie, and baby sister Dakota), they were his world. Landen also spent a lot of his younger years with his grandma Bea and grandpa Jimmy. He had formed a very special bond with his grandpa Jimmy and they spent a lot of quality time together.
Landen is survived by his mother Randi Cole, brothers Kelley and Leslie Fox and sister Dakota Matt all of Dodson, maternal grandmother Rebecca “Bea” (Jimmy) Clark of Dodson, maternal grandfather Harlan (Mary) Mount of Fort Belknap, paternal grandma Tina War Bonnet of Hays, great grandmother Sarah KillEagle of Dodson, aunts Roberta (Wesley) Bettleyoun of Billings, Felicia (Lionel) Messerly of Fort Belknap and Ashley Fox of Hays, uncles Nate (Koda) Mount and Kent Mount of Fort Belknap and Monte Fox, Jr. of Hays, along with numerous cousins.
