Date: Friday 15th March 2019
Johns' funeral service will be held at Accrington Crematorium, Burnley Road, Accrington BB5 6HA.
Peacefully surrounded by his loving family on 6th March 2019, John aged 83 years of Rishton. The devoted and much loved husband of Jean, loving dad of Colin, Ian and Fiona, dear father-in-law of Lynne, Russell and the late Karen, cherished grandad of Lois and Jemma, adored great grandad of Lola, Lacie and Alban-John and brother of Molly and the late Joe.
John worked in textiles all his working life and mostly at Highams in Great Harwood where he became nightshift manager.
A devoted family man, John loved his annual family holidays to Pontins and abroad in later years. He enjoyed hiking over mountains with his sons and he loved his home. His garage was his haven and his garden was always kept immaculate with many a happy hour spent sitting on the garden bench, no doubt wearing his baseball cap which he never went anywhere without.
A laid back, hard working gentleman, John treasured his children and grandchildren.
Family flowers only. Donations may be made in memory of John to the Stroke Association and East Lancashire Hospice.
