Peter Lindon Hargreaves

Suddenly at his home on 7th July 2024, Peter aged 87 years of Whalley. The devoted husband of Pat, loving dad of Kate and Jeremy, dear father-in-law of Denise, cherished ‘bompa’ of Jack and Eliza, dear brother of Eric ‘Scruff’ and a respected relative and friend to many.

Former managing director of the family business , C R Hargreaves & Son’s Retail and Wholesale Grocers, Clitheroe. Peter was well known and respected within the catering world and local community, he was passionate about his work and his work was his life. Away from his working life, Peter was the most avid cyclist competing in many time trials over the years and he was a former player at Blackburn Rugby Club. He adored the sunshine and spent many happy times along with his beloved wife Pat at their much loved holiday home in Tenerife enjoying some well earned rest and relaxation and would often visit for several months each time. He also enjoyed many other trips to various countries around the world. Peter was a devoted family man who always enjoyed the company of his family and he was the most proud grandad ‘bompa’ to Jack and Eliza.

Peter will be sadly missed but fondly remebered by all who knew him.
