November 7, 1932 - June 15, 2020
FOX, Patrick Joseph, 87, of Somers, NY, formerly of East Durham, NY and the Bronx, passed away peacefully on June 15, 2020 at Northern Westchester Hospital. He died of Covid-19. He was the loving husband of the late Maureen (McGlade) Fox. Born in Manchester, England, he grew up in County Armagh, Ireland. He was a son of the late Patrick Fox and Mary (McGinnity) Fox and brother of Philip Fox and the late Hugh Fox. He is survived by his children, Kevin Fox (Theresa) of Providence, RI, Anne Harten (John) of Cortlandt Manor, NY, Mary Willman (Michael) of Somers, NY, Eileen Boyle (Anthony) of Yorktown Heights, NY, and the late Sean and Brian Fox. He was the doting grandfather of Thomas Harten, Stephen Harten, Julia Willman, Michael Harten, Sean Boyle, Owen Fox, Caroline Willman, Lindsay Boyle, Nola Fox, Aidan Boyle, and the late Glen Willman. Patrick's life was focused on family, faith, and community. He was an active member of the Ancient Order of Hibernians and of the Knights of Columbus, and with his wife, a long active member of the Bedford Park Shamrock Club. He was vigorous and funny and courageous right to the very end. He was a gentle and generous soul, helpful, unpretentious, and with a great zest for life. He loved his Irish music and Irish newspapers, long walks, all animals, Dunkin' Donuts, a good cup of tea, watching the Yankees, English soccer and Gaelic football (Up Armagh!), late-night sing-a-longs, a good cigar, and the occasional rum & coke. He was a great father and a fantastic grandfather: Papa, as he was called by his eleven grandchildren. He cherished his wife, his children, and his grandkids. He always had a smile on his face and a joke at the ready. Anyone who ever spent time with him left with a lingering sense of having been in great and joyous company. He is deeply missed. A private wake will be held on Thursday June 18, 2020 from 9:00 -10:30 am at the Yorktown Funeral Home, 945 E Main St, Shrub Oak, NY. A Mass of Christian Burial will follow at 11:00 am, at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, 1377 E Main St., Shrub Oak, NY. Burial will be at the Gate of Heaven Cemetery, 10 West Stevens Avenue, Hawthorne, NY. Masks required for all.
