Anthony Joseph Lynch ‘Tony’
Tony, aged 77, formerly of Clitheroe, passed away peacefully in the loving care of White Ash Brook Nursing Home on 2nd May 2020. He was the loving and much loved dad of Tara, Rory and Alana, a cherished grandad, dear brother of Joe, Paddy, John, Matt and Anne and a dearly loved relative and friend to many.
Tony was born in Ireland and moved to Clitheroe with his family in the early 1950’s. He spent much of his working life at Castle Cement in Clitheroe where he was always a well respected member of the working team, making many friends along the way. Tony embraced life and made the most of each day. A very sociable character, Tony loved to spend time with his many friends, enjoyed the craic, and was known for his quick wit and great sense of humour.
In his spare time he enjoyed buying and selling antiques and always looked forward to getting out to the local antique fairs and auctions. He had a curious mind, read poetry and wrote some of his own.
But most of all, Tony was a devoted family man who adored his children and grandchildren. He shared a special bond with his brothers and sister, always ready to listen or lend a hand when needed. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him.
