Anthony John Greenhalgh
On 14th March 2022, peacefully in hospital with his loving family by his side, ‘Fortified By The Rites Of Holy Mother Church’ Anthony, aged 68 years, of Great Harwood. The dearly loved husband of Judith and a loved brother, brother in law and uncle.
Anthony worked at Birtwistle Textiles in Haslingden and then became a self employed electrical engineer. He loved cars and tinkering and was so talented working with his hands, he was the family DIY King and loved modernising their houses and was in demand for jobs in the family. Anthony was a true craftsman with an excellent eye for detail and design and with his passion for sailing, he designed and made his own sailing boat – stunning. He and Judith loved their holidays to Wales where Anthony would take the family out waterskiing. He also played table tennis, loved bird watching and, gifted musically, could play the piano and guitar by ear. He was indeed multi talented.

MESSAGES for the family of Anthony John Greenhalgh
I remember Anthony sailing on Coniston Water on his ‘cat’, paddling the River Eden in an open canoe and, more recently, steering the narrowboat in wind, rain and sunshine on somewhat less choppy water! Not only was he a highly skilled and knowledgeable engineer, but a considerate, patient and generous team-mate and skipper. Anthony was a lovely man; funny, industrious and easy-going and will be much missed by his fellow boaters.
Brian and Valerie Weatherburn
With our deepest sympathy.

I worked with Tony during his contracts at both Rolls Royce and M& I Trafford Park, he always carried out his works in a professional manner with exceptional skill, which is why he was in constant demand from many of our customers, but I would like to add that he was a good friend as well as a work colleague and will always have happy memories of the times we knew each other.
