A “loveing parent” working under a Melbourne house has been killed, leaving two young children behind.
On Tuesday, Jarrod Fox was electrocuted on a Croydon farm.
The 37-year-old was remembered as a “gentle kind and honest dad, son and brother who lived and worked for his two young sons”.
Fox ‘s sister Erin has developed a GoFundMe campaign to raise funds for the heartbroken family of her brother including a trust for his fiancee and children-Archer, Jasper, two, and five-week-old.
“The tragedy has shocked all who knew Jarrod, and his family,” Erin wrote on the fundraising page.
“Our thoughts and efforts are now to support Jasper, Archer and Charmaine and establish funds for their future in his memory.”
Under current restrictions on coronavirus in Victoria only 10 people are permitted to attend his funeral, but his mother Cheryl says hundreds would attend if they could.
“Our hearts are just absolutely broken,” Jarrod’s mother Cheryl told 7NEWS.
“Anyone that knew Jarrod, loved Jarrod.”
“He was the best big brother and I always looked up to him,” Erin added.
