In loving memory of the late Michael Warnock who sadly passed away on 20th January 2015.
He attended school at Holly Hill infants and junior school then moved on to Mathew Holland School until 15 years of age. On leaving school his first job was in the building trade working for J.B.Wheatley. He then went on to work in the mines at Underwood Colliery, Moorgreen Colliery then finally Calverton colliery until he was made redundant.
He was a life long supporter of Nottingham Forest. He had numerous shirts and scarves. He also like decorating in the home and loved to help other people decorate their own homes. He also loved to be outside making the garden look lovely, as well as helping other people with their own gardens.
He was very good at mimicking people and very good at portrait painting and brilliant at drawing cartoons of events that had happened in the pub or at work. He liked to have holidays abroad especially on the 18 to 30 trips.
While on holiday in Spain once he saw a man drowning in the harbour and jumped in and got him out of the water safely. He also was a hero to the Americans on an aircraft carrier that was off shore. He beat the top man off the carrier at arm wrestling. They picked him up above their heads and carried him around the bar. He didn't have to pay for another drink the rest of the week.
He was on the committee at Selston Working Men's Club. 'The Jokers'. He used to call out the bingo numbers as well as the Christmas decorations. He also did the cleaning there everyday, and liked to have a pint or two. His favourite pub was the Bull and Butcher at Selston.
He had two children. The eldest is Lee Warnock and the youngest is Stacey Warnock. He also got married to Alison, and was Stepfather to her two children Dina and Ryan King.
There are probably many more stories and tales to write about, but there wouldn't be enough room or time to read and write them all.
What we do know is that Michael Warnock will be greatly missed by everyone.
