About Joe
would've been proud to call a son,” said Mr Rix. “He made us all very proud of him,” said Mrs Rix. “He loved the army and excelled at everything he did in it. He has left a very big hole in our lives which can never be filled. He brought us joy and happiness.” His proud parents said that during his training he was awarded the honour of being best shot as rifleman. It was a talent that would see him go on to be a sharp shooter in Afghanistan. Away from the army L/Cpl Joe Rix was a loving son and brother to his sisters Emma, her husband Ian and other sibling Laura, her husband Richard, and uncle to their young son William. This memorial is in honour of Joe Rix, his life and his achievements.
