Many sad­dened by loss of Joe Flood

Bray People - - Bray People -

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.
