Terence Jenkins – Terry

Peacefully after a short illness, Terry, aged 84 years of Accrington.  Dearly beloved husband of Doreen, much loved dad of Paul, and the late Anita,  dear father in law of Julie, loving grandad of Vincent, dear brother of Maureen, Brian, Kathleen and Kenneth, and a dear brother in law, much loved uncle and a dear friend to many.
In the early part of his life, Terry worked at Hapton Colliery and after ten years joined AMEC which was later known as Fairclough’s then C.V. Buchan on Bolton Avenue in Huncoat.  Terry’s hard work and conscientiousness for the company lead to him becoming Transport Manager, Safety Officer and Manager of the yard.  After over forty years loyal service, Terry took early retirement due to ill health.
An accomplished dart player, Terry won lots of trophies from the many tournaments and competitions he entered in his younger years, in particular winning the Observer Trophy. He enjoyed Crown Green Bowling and was a member of Burnley Road Bowling Green Club for many years. Terry also liked playing dominoes every Friday at the club. Terry loved to make apple crumble using apples from his own apple trees and spent lots of time watching and feeding the birds in his garden.  Terry and Doreen enjoyed many memorable holidays together enjoying some well earned rest and relaxation.
Most of all Terry was a devoted family man and loyal friend to many. He will be greatly missed but fondly remembered .
