Jan. 7th, 1916 – March 27th, 2014
It is with great sadness to announce the passing of our Dad, Cecil John Fox.
Dad was born on Comox Hill, Long Island, Bahamas and passed peacefully at St. Joseph’s Hospital, Comox, B.C.
Dad was predeceased by his dear wife Mizpah of 54 years in 1993, parents Edmond and Lillian, brothers Errol, Donald, Reginald and Charles, sisters Inez Gonzales and Mae Jacobson and his wonderful son-in-law Wilf Moon of Courtenay.
Dad is survived and will be deeply missed by his daughters Pat Moon of Courtenay, Gaylene (George) Styburski and son Winston (Valerie), both of England. Grandchildren Randy (Michelle) Moon, of Brandon, Manitoba, Ian (Grace) Moon of Medicine Hat. Alberta, and Karen Moon of Courtenay, B.C, David Fox and Nicola Davies of England, great grands Mike (Lannah), Katherine, Brandon, Tabatha, Anthony and Dominic, Allan and Aaron Moon, Great-great Grands, Lilly of England and Sierra and Isabelle Moon of Chilliwack.
Dad was a wonderful, kind Father, Grandfather and Great grandfather. He gave to lots of charities and his fellow men, but never wanted it to be known. Everyone who came into contact with Dad immediately saw what a caring man he was.
Dad came to Canada after Mom passed in Bahamas and loved Canada and his daughter (Pat) and other family members resided in Courtenay. He lived on his own until the end. He never wanted to go into a home and got his wish.
Many thanks to Drs. Blacklock, Konway and the 3rd floor nurses at St. Joseph’s for their caring.
Also many thanks to the wonderful caregivers.
At Dad’s request his ashes will be scattered on Mom’s grave at St. Matthews Church, Nassau, Bahamas.
