Rabbi Fox was a amazing individual a tzaddik.
I am a neighbor of his and can tell you first hand what kind of tzaddik he was. he was a remarkable man and cared for every jew as his own.
let us all take upon ourselves good deeds to bring moshiach now.

I remember when I was a little child when I used to go to shul during the week for Mincha and Maariv Rabbi Fox would always call me over and ask me what I learned in school that day and I would sit down and he would test me on it.
These memories will always remain with me.

I will always remember a fateful night when I drove Rabbi Fox home from the country. It was raining buckets; it was dark, and a cloud had descended on the road. Rabbi Fox know that the strain from driving in these conditions could cause drowsiness, so he told me “exciting” Chassidishe stories all the way home to Crownheights. I will miss him dearly.

Rabbi Fox always showed great interest in our sons’ learning & their general welfare. They, in turn, were very much inspired by him & always looked forward to a nice Shalom Aleichem when they came home from camp or Yeshiva when they saw him in Shul. He was a special Chossid & he will be sadly missed. Baruch Dayan HaEmes.

I feel that this is a true turning of a leaf. Rabbi Fox was the rebbe that tought me to learn gemorah, he had the funniest stories (very entertaining for children) and I believe knew shas ba’al peh.
When learning gemorah he used to ask us to tell him the number of the daf and the first word, and he would recite from there.
He was truly intetrested in every one of his talmidim.
