Andrew P. Fox, who was active in the Boy Scouts, died of undetermined causes Feb. 12 at his Bel Air home. He was 19.

His death is under investigation by the state medical examiner's office, family members said yesterday.

Mr. Fox was born in Baltimore and raised in Bel Air. He studied for two years at James Run Christian Academy and was home-schooled for the last two years of his high school education.

"He was going to study engineering in the fall and was planning to take several engineering courses before then," said his mother, Bonnie M. Fox of Bel Air.

As a youth, Mr. Fox played Little League baseball. He was a longtime member and assistant senior patrol leader for Troop 807, and had attained Life Scout status, one step below the rank of Eagle Scout. He was also a member of the Order of the Arrow.

"He was a good kid, friendly, outgoing and well thought of," said Robert H. Beahm, the troop's former scoutmaster.

Mr. Fox enjoyed playing drums and had been a member of several garage bands. He liked drawing and designing race cars.

He was a member of Cross Roads Community Church in Bel Air.

Services will be held at 2 p.m. tomorrow at Zumbrun Funeral Home, 6028 Sykesville Road, Eldersburg.
