In loving memory of the late Arthur Leslie Woodcock who sadly passed away on 19th October 2014.

Les was a loving husband, father, grandad and friend.
He was a hard-working, fun loving, generous and kind man. He will always be loved and remembered with much joy.
We are blessed to have him and the memories he gave us and although he is no longer with us he will always be in our hearts.

He was a wind-up merchant and loved to have a joke - the sillier the better! That time with the wig...
He enjoyed Guinness and rum... Especially Navy rum... and blackcurrant...
He didn't care too much for flowers but would happily tend to a garden of veggies!
He lived in corduroys, he had a pair in every colour!
He ate Shredded Wheat every morning for his entire life, yes, his entire life!
He LOVED biscuits and Golden Syrup sandwiches.
He adored dogs, especially Claude - his faithful companion.
He made the best spag bol in the land.
He was never alright - he was always 'half left'.

There are so many things to write - he was an amazing man. Life won't be the same without him. We would like to celebrate his life and share the memories that show just how wonderful he was.
Please share your memories and please feel free to add any photographs, we'd love to see them here.
xx

Every week without fail you would get me a magazine 'shout', cheese doritos, orange lucazade and whisper gold because you knew they were my favourite, the meandering walks back from the legion with the safest tightest hand crip, all my fingers would be moulded together by the end, the cuddles with your arm wrapped around me rubbing my shoulder in such a comforting way, how i would wish you were my grandad, thank you for treating me like one grandad. Will always be grateful for everything you done for me, you hold a special place in my heart. I'm so glad the last time you were here i held you hand so tight, remembered the old days and i kissed you. Sweet dreams 'Grandad', now you are at rest. Xxxxxxxxxx

Walking to and from school nattering all the way. Train rides and fun in Yarmouth at the Pleasure beach. Fun nights at the Legion with our family ;) The day he accidentally let 'Hop' the rabbit escape!! Twisting his hair into funny shapes. Swimming in Center Parcs. Sneaking up on him and unclipping his braces at the back - sorry Grandad! Letting me sleep in his room on a makeshift bed on the floor when I was little, and he never once moaned about me waking him up in the night because I was scared or lonely. I love you Grandad xxxx
