Mickey Adderley (1941-2018)

Mickey Adderley, who co-owned popular Front Street bar Flanagan's, has died. Mr Adderley was 77.

The businessman also ran clothing store Flatts Menswear for decades.

Michael Dunkley, a One Bermuda Alliance backbencher, told the House of Assembly on Friday that the store had been popular for gifts and work clothes.

Mr Dunkley added: “Mr Adderley died suddenly last weekend, and he will be a miss to this community.”

Mr Adderley was said to be a keen entrepreneur by Opposition MPs Jeanne Atherden and Susan Jackson. Ms Jackson said she had grown up in Flatts and had shopped in Mr Adderley's store.

She added that many people were unaware of his contribution to the community.

Ms Jackson said: “He mentored and brought to success a number of entrepreneurs on this island — he taught young men the ways of business and ensured they were successful in their own businesses.

“Where necessary, he provided support to make sure that entrepreneurs would have a future here. His legacy will live on.”

A funeral service for Mr Adderley will be held at 3pm today at St Patrick's Roman Catholic Church in Smith's.

His legacy will live on: Mickey Adderley, a former co-owner of popular Front Street bar Flanagan's and the Outback
