David James Thomas

On 27th August 2019 peacefully in hospital, Dave aged 66 years of Great Harwood.  The dearly beloved husband of the late Beryl, loved step-dad of John and Stephen, dear father-in-law of Debra, Nicola and Cath, loving grandad, dear brother and uncle and a good friend to many.

Dave worked as a tool setter at Metflex.

A happy go lucky character, Dave was laid back and easy-going and loved being in company.  A proud upright gentleman, he would chat to anyone. Crown green bowling was a big part of his life at Rushton St. Bowling and he loved visiting other bowling clubs and meeting the people there.  He was a season ticket holder at Blackburn Rovers and he loved his food, especially a spaghetti and meatballs takeaway from Papa Marios.  After Beryl died, Dave was very popular with his neighbours Doreen, Eileen and Joyce and he called them his ‘golden girls’.

Donations may be made in memory of Dave to the British Lung Foundation.
