Laurie O'Leary was a lifelong friend of the twins, writing a book in 2002 titled, Ronnie Kray: A Man Among Men. Although not a gangster himself, he maintained a strong relationship with both Ronnie and Reggie, eventually becoming one of their closest friends.


Born in London's East End, Laurie has known the Kray family all his life, and worked for the twins until the 1960s. He remained close friends with Ronnie, visiting him in prison until the day he died.
