James Jeffrey Law ‘Jeff’

On 1st December 2020, suddenly but peacefully in hospital​, Jeff aged 83 years of Clayton-Le-Dale ​sadly passed away.

Much-loved and cherished husband of Vera, devoted and much-loved dad of Denise and son-in-law Frank also a loving grandad of Daniel and Hannah.

Jeff started his working life at the age of 15 as an apprentice Mechanical Engineer in the Motor Trade. Jeff then went into sales and worked his way up to ​Sales Manager at Skippers in Burnley. In 1982 Jeff went self-employed with his friend ​and colleague Mike Norville in Hebden Bridge setting up a sales and service forecourt.

Jeff was an avid Burnley fan and season ticket holder. He adored the world tours and cruises that he had with his beloved wife Vera. He always looked forward to visiting his cherished quiet place, “The Oaks”, his caravan in the Lake District. Jeff was known for being a true gentleman who could ​always tell a good story. He enjoyed being in good company and was very family orientated. Jeff will be sadly missed but fondly remembered by all who had the pleasure of knowing and loving him.
