Jack's funeral service will be held at Westbury Gardens United Reformed Church, Blackburn, BB1 1XF followed by committal at Accrington Crematorium.
On 19th April 2019 peacefully in a private care home, Jack aged 94 years, formerly of Intack. A very dear uncle, cousin, great uncle and nephew of the late Alfred Wainwright.
Jack served with the Royal Signals and later became a Personnel Officer for Norweb. It was a job he enjoyed and where he worked up until his retirement.
Cruises all over the world and especially the Mediterranean were a particular passion of Jacks. He sailed on the QE2 and Queen Mary, amongst others, and made many good friends along the way. A true Royalist, Jack was an avid reader of Royal History. A lifelong member of Westbury Gardens United Reformed Church, Jack was involved in all aspects of the Church which he had attended all his life and he was also a lay reader. The Church and travelling were his life. With his caring nature, warm personality with a lovely smile and interest in others, Jack enjoyed corresponding with his many friends.
Family flowers only please. Donations may be made in memory of Jack to RNLI.
