It is with deep regret that Mill Creek Fire Company announces the passing of Deputy Chief Emeritus John Fox.

John was a go-getter from the moment he joined Mill Creek in April of 1963, holding many positions within Mill Creek during his lifetime.   Helping to shape many future officers with in Mill Creek as an advisor for Post 921 and moving up himself to the offices of Assistant Chief, Deputy Chief, Deputy Emeritus, serving on the Board of Directors and President three different times over his career.
He continued to be active as Fire Police, before becoming Fire Police Emeritus and a lifetime member of the Fire Police Association, holding positions in both the State and County Associations.

A member of the following associations:  Past Chiefs Association, Past Presidents Association, the DVFA, NCCVFA, Cumberland Valley VFA, the Del-Mar-Va VFA, and Delaware Valley Fire Chiefs Association.

John was proud to be Past President Emeritus of the DVFA, as driving force of the Delaware fire service. He will be greatly missed by many.
