William Fox was an Army Infantry Soldier fighting who entered the armed forces on 10 April, 1943 and fought in Normandy, France until being killed in action. With very little records to date of his life before his military involvement, Fox's legacy and family life was not an easy task to come by. There are no photos of William Fox available. Fox was memorialized in the unnamed soldier region of the Normandy cemetery.
