THE two men killed in an horrific accident early on Sunday are to have a joint funeral.
The families of Marsden men David Baillie, 56, and Brian Bentley, 48, say it's what the fun-loving pair would have wanted.
Both men were killed in a collision with a car after they had been dropped off in Meltham Road, Marsden. They were just yards from their front doors.
Mr Baillie's son, Raymond, said he was alerted to the tragedy by neighbour.
He added: "Someone came to the door and said there's a woman screaming for an ambulance.
"When I got there dad had been dragged underneath the car and was trapped under the front wheels.
"Time just stood still."
He paid tribute to his father.
Raymond said: "He was always having fun and making fun.
"Dad always had a smile on his face.
"He loved having a drink, having a flutter on the horses and watching the football.
"He knew how to have a good time and he enjoyed himself."
The father-of-four was a bus cleaner for the First company.
Raymond added: "His nickname was Jock, because of the family's Scottish background and it was his birthday the day he died.
"We were planning to give him an England shirt with Jock on the back.
"We are still going to do that and we want him to be buried in it.
"It's what he would have wanted."
Brian Bentley's brother, Terrance, said the pair were inseparable.
He added: "They were best mates. They loved being together and having a laugh.
"My brother loved travelling; he really enjoyed going on holiday.
"He was due to travel to India later this year and was looking forward to it."
Brian was a driver for Shaw Pallet in Slaithwaite.
Terrance added: "He had always been the same since we were kids.
"He loved having fun then and he still loved it.
"The pair of them were loveable rogues and would have done anything for their family and friends.
"Because of their personalities they were both really well known around the area."
Brian will be buried in his West Ham shirt.
Terrance said: "It is difficult to believe they are both gone.
"We will all really miss their laughter and smiles."
Raymond added: "I will even miss my dad's nagging.
"Both of them were great guys and we are just still in shock."
The funeral service for both men is next Tuesday at St Bartholemew's Church, Marsden, followed by cremation.
