Obituary for Charles Nathaniel Fox (1951 - 2019)

Charles Nathaniel Fox was called to return to his Creator on December 1, 2019.

Born October 27, 1951, in Nassau, Bahamas. He was the only child of Cecil and Edna Fox. His father has passed on but his mother still lives in the Bahamas. From his tender years, he was attentive to the scriptures and at age 10, he was baptized and added to the Lord's body. He worshipped with the saints at Highbury Park Church of Christ until he became a young adult.

In his early twenties he decided to leave the country of his birth and come to America. At this point in his life, there were 2 decisions he had made which he never regretted. The first decision was to become a baptized believer. The second decision was to come to America because that's where he met his wife.

Married December 30, 1976. He was a loving and devoted husband and father for forty-three years. The husband of one wife, his surviving spouse, Treathyl Vandie Fox. Their union was blessed with 11 children: Isaaiel Fox; Charniel Fox; Gabriel Fox; Michael Fox; Daniel Fox; Michel Fox-Kennell; Kahmeel Fox; Samuel Fox; Sherrel Fox; Raquel Fox; and Janel Fox. He is survived by all of his children, along with several grandchildren, and a great grandchild.

In his life, he strived to use the talents and skills that God gave him to accomplish good. He was content with whatever blessings he received, and was more than happy to assist others if he was able to. He tried as best he could to instill his faith in his children, so that they would know The Way and how to find their way. He honored his marriage vows and faithfully loved and cherished his wife in sickness and in health, through difficult times and joyful times. He humbly acknowledged his failures and shortcomings, confessed his faults, and always sought his healing and guidance from God's Word. This was his approach to dealing with anything and everything in this life. These particular scriptures kept him anchored:

And whoever gives one of these little ones only a cup of cold water ... assuredly, I say to you, he shall by no means lose his reward.” (Matthew 10: 42)

See that no one renders evil for evil to anyone, but always pursue what is good both for yourselves and for all.” (1 Thessalonians 5: 15)

Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” (Hebrews 12: 2)

He will be missed.
