David Howard Burrell

Suddenly at his home on 5th December 2020, David aged 72 years of Accrington. The loving and loved dad of Damian, Danielle, Erika and the late Ryan, cherished grandad of Reuben, Mason and the late Oscar, also a dear brother, relative and friend.

A devoted family man who gave his love freely to his family and the most proud grandad. David was always proud of his service in the Armed Forces who he served with for twelve years. He always looked forward to attending reunions to be reunited with his comrades. Following his Army career David had various job roles including club steward at local clubs before finally retiring from his work at Pendle Leisure. An avid Manchester United supporter, David was at his happiest when settled at home in his favourite chair, relaxing and watching television with his beloved companion dogs Charlie and Coco at his side.
