Cab procession planned in tribute to popular King's Lynn taxi driver
West Norfolk taxi drivers are planning a poignant tribute to colleague Andrew Brown, who has died aged 41.
They will be lining up a procession of cabs to accompany the hearse to Mintlyn for Andrew's funeral on Friday, October 15.
Andrew, also known as Andy or Brownie, lived at Dersingham and died after a short illness. He had been a taxi driver all his life.
His family describe him as an "outdoorsy sort of guy" who loved the countryside, walking his dog Buddy with his partner Sophie Wells, and firing up his barbecue. He was also a keen and gifted photographer and was an enthiastic forager in the local woodlands.
There are expected to be at least 15 cabs waiting in the Dersingham Co-op car park for the hearse to leave Andrew's mum's house nearby and to lead the hearse to Mintlyn at 11am.
After the service, family and friends will gather at the Sandboy pub where Andrew's cousin Myron Brown is landlord.
Andy's favourite colours are burnt orange, mustard and sky blue and those going to the funeral are being asked to wear something to reflect this.
Donations are requested for Pancreatic Cancer UK.
