In Memory of Councillor Bryan Corps

2nd November 1943 - 7th October 2009

Wexham, Slough, Berkshire

...No longer here, but still in the lives of those whose gain was knowing you...

Bryan passed away at home at the age of 65 after a long period of illness, bravely borne, and was cared for by his devoted wife Pat throughout.  He spent his final days surrounded by family, friends and neighbours, by whom he will be sadly missed.  Bryan always took a keen interest in local matters and was proud to serve his fellow residents as a Parish Councillor for the last seven and a half years.  He was an active Member right up until his final days and had frequent discussions with the Clerk to keep abreast of current events.  A memorial plaque will be mounted in the Parish Hall to commemorate his valued contribution to the Community.

May he rest peacefully... in the better place that he confidently felt was awaiting him.

From Dianne Egan, 8th October 2009


You will be greatly missed and remembered by many of the people you knew, but none more so than the Egan family to whom you were a good neighbour, close friend, and godfather to our son Chris.  When we speak of you it will always be with laughter as we will recall that wicked and dry sense of humour of yours – an endearing personality trait that never left you even throughout your final days.

As time starts to heal, I do hope that our dear Pat and the rest of your family will also be able to share the memories of you with happy hearts… as you would have wanted.

It’s comforting to know that you are now at peace.

Blessed Be,

Dianne (aka Witch)


From Chris Egan, 8th October 2009

Uncle Bryan,

You've been a cool godfather and I will look forward to shooting some targets with you in your next life some day.  Just look out for the ricochets and those blue shoes!



From Carl Egan, 8th October 2009

Hope the new place you're in meets all your expectations.  Have a shandy on me!

Monica and I will miss you... until we meet again.



From Henry Egan, 8th October 2009

I did not see you close your eyes, or hear your last faint sigh,

I only heard that you were gone... too late to say goodbye.

One thing I'll always cherish, no matter what life sends,

Are my memories of the times we shared, as neighbours and best friends.

Bye mate,



From Dave Davies, Chairman, 9th October 2009

Bryan Corps was a Councillor of long standing who had a strong interest in the area in which he lived.  Even during his long illness he could often be seen out and about on his mobility scooter ensuring that all was well around the estate.  He placed great importance on his responsibilities as an elected Councillor, which benefited the whole Community.

Bryan will be sorely missed by all his colleagues on the Parish Council, and by all those he came into contact with.

May he rest in peace.



From David MacIsaac, Parish & Borough Councillor, 9th October 2009

I did not know Bryan for as long as others, but what I knew I liked.  He was a character who in the old days one would call 'the salt of the earth', and would also give his right arm to help anybody.  Even during his illness he diligently attended meetings whenever he could, even if that meant coming in on his electric scooter.  He showed true bravery by not letting his illness stop him from being an active member of our Community.

His beloved wife Pat was constantly by his side during his long illness and my sincere thoughts and prayers go out to all his family at this very sad time.  Bryan believed he was going to a better place, a faith which I share, and I know he will be waiting to meet us all again when our time comes.

Rest in Peace Bryan,

Councillor David MacIsaac

From Tanya Abbott, 14th October 2009


You will be deeply missed but never far from our thoughts.  I have many childhood memories of you and all the support you gave me, for which I will always be grateful.

By the way Bryan, I found the combination to the larder!!

All my love,

From Tina Kellett, Finance Clerk, 20th October 2009

My heart goes out to Pat and all the family.  I always thought that Bryan put a strong point of view over that was always valid and well worth listening to.  His opinion and input will be missed by the Parish Council.



From Bryan's granddaughter Lauren, 3rd July 2011


It has almost been two years now and you are still missed deeply.  I know you are looking down and will know that I have made you a great-grandad.  Tommy Bryan reminds me more and more of you as each day passes by.  I tell him about you and I will continue to do so.  I hope I have done you proud as I have kept to my promise...

I love you loads, xxxxxxx
