William (Will) Fox
William (Will), aged 29 at time of recording (2013), was living on the Gold Coast Australia.
Will and I worked together in a call centre and it seemed he always had a story to tell, question to ask, inspiration to deliver, and good natured mischief to disperse. Quite simply, Will would have to be one of the bravest, funniest men I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.
In July this year (2016) Will passed away. Personally I was shattered. I guess one always hopes that the “Wills” of your life will be around forever. We know that can’t be, but somehow we take these things for granted. Over the following days I realised, that whilst it was indeed a sad occasion, Will had lived and loved as much as he could through life, friends and family and yes he did make a difference.
I was always in awe of how he faced his challenges, usually with a laugh and a truly wicked sense of humour, and the immense sense of loyalty and pride for those close to him.
We said goodbye to Will on a beautiful winters morning where family and friends gathered telling inspiring tales sharing moments of laughter and tears. Looking back there was an overall sense of togetherness, knowing we were far all better off for knowing him.
So I guess this chat was always going to be special. It was recorded at Burleigh Heads on the Gold Coast and covers his health issues including spina bifida, his upbringing, and how he viewed the world.
This interview is posted with the wish that it will bring back inspiring memories, heal wounds and give some insight into how we handle lifes issues.
Much love to all of William’s family and friends. xx
Here is my chat with Will.
