Many saddened by loss of Joe Flood
THE FAMILY, neighbours and friends in Bray of the late Joseph (Joe) Flood were shocked and saddened to learn of his sudden death at St. James’ Hospital on Thursday September 4 after complications in surgery.
Joe lived in Kennedy Park, Bray for 46 years with his loving wife and six children. He moved this year to Robertstown to live with his son Eugene and daughter-in-law Angela after the death of his beloved wife Brigid just one year ago, which left him bro- kenhearted.
Although his family was there with him every day he was so lonely without his wife and best friend.
Joe met Brigid in the skating rink in Dolphin’s Barn. His children used to laugh when he told them the story, as he was going to go either skating or bowling that night and luckily chose skating!
Joe was a locksmith by trade and did a lot of work in Dublin. He and Brigid got married in 1960 when they moved to Bray and started a family, ultimately raising six children.
They were united in everything they did and were always together in life, their children finding comfort now in the knowledge that they are together again.
Joe will be sorely missed by his children Imelda, Kieran, Eugene, Fionnuala, Madeline Orla and his eight devoted grandchildren. He is also sadly missed by his sisters Bríd and May and all his nieces and nephews as well as everyone else who knew and loved him.
May he rest in peace.
The late Joe Flood, RIP.
