He also loved choral signing firstly at St James Parish Church in Haslingden and then becoming a choir member at Blackburn Cathedral, where he made many friends. Jack was a devoted family man and was very much a homebird. He adored being a grandad to Jacob, encouraging him with his football and cricket and Lola inherited her grandad’s love of dogs.
