James Ian McManus (Ian)

On the 23rd June in Blackpool Victoria hospital, with his loving family by his side Ian aged 73 of Billington.

The devoted husband of Jackie, loving dad to Andrew and Victoria, cherished grandad of Ava, Hattie and Lila and a highly respected friend to many.

Ian spent his working life as a Master Butcher for over 35 years. Ian was so kind and gentle with a heart of pure gold. He always had an array of stories which we all loved listening to and was always making his grandchildren laugh. Ian loved music and in his younger days was in a band called The Blue Star Combo where he played the guitar.

Most recently Ian enjoyed tinkering with his model train set, he made some highly impressive buildings and stations to line the track- this definitely showed off his artistic flair and his patience.

Ian will be greatly missed by all his family and friends.

The death of Ian was non covid related.
