  1. Peter Fox was always very nice and helpful to me when I had a kayak at the Rye Marina.
    I remember him as a wonderful person.

  2. I was so sorry to hear this, Pete was a long time friend, a great guy, a hardworking, dedicated city resident who gave the city all he had for many years. I for one will never forget peter and the way in which he helped everyone he could. I will also not forget the deplorable way the city of Rye treated him after years of dedicated service. Rest in peace my friend. My condolences to Helen, Mary and the entire Fox family.
