A viewing was held for Plymouth Township, Montgomery County police officer Bradley Fox Tuesday night September 18, 2012 at Epiphany of Our Lord church in Whitpain Township.  Hundreds of police officers from Montgomery County and other surrounding communities came to pay their final respects.

Funeral and burial services will be held Wednesday both at the church on Walton Road and at the Washington Crossing National Cemetery in Bucks County.

Officer Fox was a 5-year veteran of the police force according to the obituary, and also served in the United States Marine Corps for ten years.  In the USMC he was deployed to Iraq for two tours.

Officer Fox was shot and killed Thursday September 13, 2012 just a day before his 35th birthday as he chased a suspect along the Schuylkill River Trail in Plymouth Township, according to police.  The suspect later committed suicide during a massive man hunt for him, according to investigators.
