Leslie Charles Flanagan (Les)

So we started the new year of 2022 and how would you ever believe how it would unfold, our big brothers Ray and Les passing away with in five months of one another 

For my sister Helen and I our brothers were a decade older than us so we looked up to them with respect and they meant everything to us, always there if we had a problem to air 

Les taught me to drive a car at the age of 14 and would let me drive it around the yard where he worked. He also taught me to drive a reach truck at the same age at the old Cory’s where house of which he was the fork truck trainer and where he won fork truck driver of the year late 70s 

Don’t believe that I ever had a cross word with Les except for once when he broke down in the centre of London in his car, God knows how he got hold of me as there was no such thing as mobile phones, so I drove to him and towed him all the way home in the dark he couldn’t see where he was going and I had my foot down, when we got home he got out the car with a face like thunder and said you could of fucking killed me .we had some great wind-ups 

As we start to draw a close to this year of 22 I look back at the greatest memories of Ray and Les 

Les our last piece of coffee and tangerine gateaux 

Twisting the night away played very loud

Good by Les. Until we meet again some sunny day
