Stephen's funeral service will be held at Accrington Cremaotirum, Burnley Road, Accrington BB5 6HA
At home with his wife by his side on 7th January 2023, Stephen aged 61 years of Rishton and formerly of Oswaldtwistle. The devoted and much loved husband and soulmate of Michelle, loving and loved dad of Amy, Jessica and Imogen, dear brother of Linda, Angela and Juliette and a dear uncle, relative and friend.
A quiet private gentleman who’s family was always at the centre of his world, he doted on his girls and he worked hard to provide the best life he could for them. He enjoyed his time working as a HGV driver collecting and delivering fresh fruit and vegetables and he would return home with occasional treats for the girls and each Friday he would present his beloved wife Michelle with a beautiful bouquet of flowers. He loved the outdoors and the natural beauty of the world and would often disappear with his camera snapping his latest pictures. Stephen was a self taught guitarist and loved to relax at home playing his favourite tunes and could often be found in his shed tinkering away where he spent many happy hours.
