Neville Holden ‘Nev’

Peacefully at East Lancashire Hospice on 29th December 2022, Neville aged 63 years of Rishton. The devoted and much loved husband of Christina, loving brother of Deborah, the late Jack and the late Jim and also a dearly loved uncle, relative and friend to many.

Following his school years Neville completed his apprenticeship as a mechanic before joining the family haulage firm, L Holden Limited, following in the footsteps of his grandfather and father. Neville loved his work and the freedom of the open road he was well known within the haulage industry and a well respected gentleman. In his spare time, Neville loved to keep up to date with his beloved Blackburn Rovers and he loved nothing more than getting in the stands to cheer his team on. He loved to socialise and enjoyed catching up with his many friends whilst enjoying a drink and could often be found at Rishton Conservative Club, The Workies and Rishton Cricket Club. Holidays were always a favourite time for Neville and together with his wife and soulmate Christina they have navigated the globe enjoying trips to Australia, Las Vegas, Cuba, Gambia, Mexico and many European destinations enjoying some well deserved rest and relaxation.
