FOX, Chas.. W "Charley",
D.F.C. & Bar
1920 - 2008
We deeply regret the passing of a
great Canadian, war hero, family man and friend.
On Saturday, October 18, 2008, at the
age of 88, Charley Fox, was killed instantly in an automobile accident
after leaving a meeting of The Harvard Aircraft Association near
Tillsonburg, Ontario. He had been active in this organization since its
inception and had given a talk that morning.
Charley had an illustrious war record,
first as an instructor, and later as a Spitfire pilot. He participated in
many colourful events - some that helped to change history.
In recent years, he was extremely
active in promoting veterans groups of all kinds, and in spreading the
untold stories of fallen comrades to the youth of today.
He was also well known as an airshow
commentator and speaker.
Charley - you touched a lot of lives
and the world is better for you having been in it for a while.
We'll miss you!
