Remembered by: john jo westbrook

Date added: 4 Jan 2016

My Dad Stanley George Westbrook was a proud strong man. He boxed for the RAF for many years from the age of 17 As a Fly weight then Feather weight

He quickly became very popular and had a good following winning many trophies along the way which made him National fly weight champion 1943 at the Royal Albert Hall also winner of the Southern Silver wings trophy.

DAD then left the RAF met my mum Celia married and had 6 children.

Dad worked long hours driving police coaches transporting prisoners then went home and helped his father out in his shoe repair business along with his elder brother Vic.

Dad then bought his own mini coach he was the first person to own one after having it specially designed and made and set up his own business Lilliput coaches

This took him all over the country transporting many famous people rock stars etc

Dad worked until the great age of 70 still driving his coach around London working for the famous Hill House school

Sadly Dad developed a Tumour which was removed from his head but spread to his lymph gland under his ear and we and the world lost a special person  2 years ago but not before he put up another brave fight.

This is a tribute page dedicated to my Dad 

Just to let everyone know how proud we all were of him 

Love you Dad.
