A Force for Methodist Evangelism
Foundation For Evangelism – July 29, 2021

LAKE JUNALUSKA, N.C. – The Foundation for Evangelism joins Methodists from around the world who mourn the loss of the evangelist, The Rev. Dr. H. Eddie Fox, who passed away on July 28, 2021, in Sevierville, Tenn. Known across the globe in Wesleyan circles as a dynamic evangelist, Eddie inspired thousands of Christian leaders to share the Gospel story so that the world might know Jesus Christ.

“As a trustee for The Foundation for Evangelism, I join my family in requesting that gifts of love and remembrance in celebration of my dad’s life be made to the Rev. Dr. H. Eddie and Mary Nell Fox Endowment for Evangelism at The Foundation for Evangelism. My dad and I worked together to start this endowment to continue his mission and life’s work ‘that the world may know Jesus Christ,’” Eddie’s daughter, Gaye Nell Heck, shares.

Rev. Allen Black, Board Chair, states, “The Foundation for Evangelism extends its deepest condolences to Eddie’s wife and ministry partner, Mary Nell Fox, his children Tom, Tim, and Gaye Nell Fox Heck, and grandchildren. Eddie has been a mentor and inspiration to my ministry. It is indeed an honor to serve this organization chosen by the Fox family to preserve the legacy of this evangelistic, Wesleyan leader.”
