Philip Fox MBE
We were greatly saddened, on the 6th September, to learn that our dear friend Philip Fox had passed away. Philip was a valued member of Emmanuel’s family throughout his lifetime, taking on the secretaryship in 1969 following the death of his father who had been secretary before him. His faith was not something he “put-on” as part of his Sunday best – for Philip, Jesus was the leading light in his life and he radiated back that energy in all that he did. From his work life to his tenure as Boys’ Brigade Captain (7th Hounslow) and his preaching & leading of Sunday School to his joyous involvement in his local choirs, Philip made it clear to all around the wonders and, yes, hardships of being a Christian. He was a constant inspiration to all of us who were blessed to know him and he will be greatly missed.
