Michael Ellingworth Raine
Lover of the outdoors
On 1st September 2016 peacefully at East Lancashire Hospice surrounded by his loving family, Michael aged 72 years of Clayton-le-Moors. The devoted and much loved husband of Susan, loving dad of John and Helen, dear father-in-law of Katherine and Paul, cherished grandpa of Matthew, Adam and Stella, dear brother of Susan and a treasured relative and good friend to many.
Michael worked for Newman’s Footwear, Blackburn, for over thirty years leading to his retirement. He was a very active man who appreciated the outdoors and loved nothing more than escaping on a long walk around the fells of the Lake District and the hills of the Yorkshire Dales. An active supporter of Accrington Stanley and member of Clayton Harriers, Michael enjoyed competing in many fell races and completed several marathons. On less active days he loved to get together with friends for a jam session on the guitar playing his favourite folk songs. Michael loved life and lived every day to its full. He had a positive outlook and remained the same throughout his illness. He will be greatly missed by all his family and his many friends.

Roy Graham Smith
Caring man who loved his new cars
Suddenly at his home on 23rd August 2016 Roy aged 74 years of Clayton-le-Moors. The dearly loved and devoted son of the late Tom and Kath Smith and treasured friend to Kalum.
Roy retired from work at the age of thirty five years from the family business and enjoyed a long and fulfilled retirement. Each year he would treat himself to a brand new car which he would spend hours meticulously choosing his latest model. A quiet and gentle character who will be fondly missed.
In times of darkness, love sees…
In times of silence, love hears...
In times of doubt, love hopes…
In times of sorrow, love heals...
And in all times, love remembers.
May time soften your pain
Until all that remains
Is the warmth of the memories
And the love.
