Here’s a story from Pamela Pickford, eldest sister of Harry Floyd, a family friend of ‘The Old Man‘ (Dennis Snr).
She shares a memory of Big Den, stood at the side of his dad’s grave as we said farewell to Dennis Snr. As they lowered the coffin, Big Den removed a diamond ring and threw it into the ground. “You were a diamond when you were here, have a diamond now!”.
She also shares the story of Winnie moving from the house on Waterworks Street into the high rise across the road. When Dennis Snr came home from work she had to shout to him from the window “Oi.. you live here now !”.
More priceless memories from the life & times of Big Den.
