Roger Fox is the husband of Andy Fox and father to Peter, Paige and Jason Fox. According to the strip, he is forty-five years old and was born in Chicago, Illinois. Roger has also stated that he majored in English studies at the fictional Willot College.
His hobbies include golf and chess, though he has talent at neither. He often tries to involve his family in his interests, usually by taking them on vacations and taking them to golf courses where once Andy and Roger played 72 holes with a 6am tee off time . He is also portrayed as being highly out of step with modern technology, especially computers. Many strips also show that he is overweight and in poor physical condition; despite his wife's attempts to get him to eat healthy foods and exercise, he rarely does so. Of all his kids, Roger seems to have a special soft spot for his youngest, Jason. He is often shown buying Jason toys that are not necessarily suitable for him (examples include, but are not limited to, a GI Joe dart bazooka, a GI Joe rapid fire dart helmet,and a snow cannon), much to Jason's excitement and the rest of the family's agony (as they are often Jason's targets). This may be because Roger was a lot like Jason when he was a kid (in one strip, Roger shows Jason how to remove a Darth Vader helmet, and when asked how he knew how to remove it, Roger revealed, much to Jason's horror, that he himself was a Star Wars fan as a child who wore the same helmet to the premiere of The Empire Strikes Back.
