Stanley Alfred Becalick

Below is the death notice for Stanley Alfred Becalick, my 1st cousin 2x removed taken from the Liverpool Echo Tuesday 29 October 1946, page 2. Stanley died in an accident serving with the RAF in Enniskillen on 26 October 1946.
The second clipping is from the Belfast Newsletter at the time. He was due to be released from the RAF within two weeks when he was involved in a fatal motorcycle accident.

He is buried with his parents in West Derby Cemetery. If anyone knows anything more about the Joan mentioned in the notice please let me know.

Stanley's mother, Gertrude Elsie Hindley, was sister to my great grandmother Ellen Eliza Hindley.

The notice reads:

" BECALICK - October 26 in Northern Ireland aged 23 years. Stanley beloved fiancé of Joan (Smiles, tears, of all my life, and, if God chooses, I shall but love thee better after death.) "

RAF Killadeas on the banks of Lough Erne, seven miles from Enniskillen was home to the Catalina flying boats.

Unfortunately, Stanley's war medals were sold at auction a few years ago.
