Anthony John Yarranton (John) Yarry

Peacefully on the 12th June 2021 with his loving family by his side John aged 64 years of Clayton Le Moors.
Devoted dad to Amy, Kirsty and  Sarah and their partners Ian, Wayne and Dave, cherished grandad to Kelsie, Denley, Remi, Morgan, Alisia, Eli-James, Joey-James, Phoebe, George Georgia, Katie and Chantelle, dear brother to Christine, loving uncle to Michael, Lee and William also a loyal extended family member and friend to many.
John spent most of his working life as a mental heath worker at Calderstones, this was a job that John thoroughly enjoyed. In his spare time John enjoyed spending time with his family and he was also an avid Burnley supporter. John loved the football banter and he enjoyed to socialise with his friends enjoying a few pints. Walking was another of John’s hobbies he loved outdoors and all that nature had to offer, Pendle Hill and Edisford Bridge were his favourite go to places. John had a great sense of humour and will be sadly missed but fondly remembered by all who had the pleasure of knowing and loving him.
