Ofc. Fox Memorials to Precede Wednesday Funeral, Donations Still Accepted

A list of ways the community can continue to support fallen Plymouth Police Officer Brad Fox.

Viewing and funeral arrangements for fallen Plymouth Police Officer Bradley Fox have been scheduled for midweek, as local community members and law enforcement continue to show their support.

On Monday night, the Warriors Watch Motorcycle Club will gather at the Philadelphia Police Academy at 8501 State Road, Philadelphia, before beginning a memorial motorcycle ride to the Plymouth Township Police Department. According to Montgomery County Sheriff Eileen Behr, members of various fire companies will stage along the route. Law enforcement officers interested in riding are asked to assemble at 6:30 p.m. before a 7 p.m. departure.

Two viewings have been scheduled at Epiphany of Our Lord Parish, 3050 Walton Road, Plymouth Meeting. The first is scheduled for 5 to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, and the second from 7 to 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday. The second viewing will be followed by an 11 a.m. funeral mass. According to Plymouth Township staff, both viewings will be open to the public, and a large screen will be setup in the parking lot of Epiphany if there is not enough room inside the church during the mass.

Following services, Officer Fox's body will then be transported to the Washington Crossing National Cemetery, 830 Highland Road, Newtown, for burial. The procession will close various roads in Plymouth and Whitpain Townships, including stretches of Walton, Township Line, and Norristown Roads for much of the day.

Those looking to show their support to Officer Fox's family can make contributions to the Fox Children's Fund by mailing or bringing in a check to Continental Bank, 661 Germantown Pike, Plymouth Meeting, 19462.

In addition, the Plymouth Police station is continuing to accept food donations to support its administrative staff and police officers from surrounding departments, who are helping to police Plymouth as the department recovers from the loss. Officer Fox's vehicle is currently parked outside of the station for the viewing of visitors, and a pair of memorials, surrounded by flowers, is accessible in the main lobby.

At least four locations, including Kelly's Worldclass Automotive, have been named for a bake sale on Sunday, Sept. 23 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The sales in the Limerick area were organized by neighbors and friends of the Fox family to raise funds for the Fox Children's Fund.
