Ronald Threlfall

Aged 81 years, of Rishton and formerly Clayton-le-Moors, died peacefully in hospital with his loving family at his side, on 10th April 2024.

The devoted and much loved husband of Cynthia, loving dad of Janet, Deborah, Sharon, Jason and the late Roy. Dear father-in-law of Jeffrey, Alan, Colin, Stephanie and Tricia. Cherished grandad of Claire, Damian, Benjamin, Simon, Emma, Jonathan, Liam, Shannon, Michael, Denya and Lilly. Great-grandad of Aimee, Jake, Penelope, Ava and Sebastian. Dear brother of Walter, Mary and Jean and the late Lawrence, Raymond and Margaret. A much respected uncle, relative and friend.

Born and raised in Clayton, Ronald was a well-known face in the local community. He attended St. James’s Mission and Mount Pleasant schools. He began his working life in his father’s scrap metal business and later became a HGV driver. Ronald loved his work, enjoyed driving and loved the freedom of the open road. He was a family man who enjoyed family gatherings and celebrations, and spending time with his grandchildren. He had a cheerful personality and always had a tale to tell. He had a love of horses, the country life and horse racing. Ronald enjoyed socialising. He was a man’s man and a regular member at local clubs, especially Park View Working Men’s Club.

Ronald will be sadly missed but fondly remembered by all who had the pleasure of knowing him.
