Throughout his life John was a painter and decorator as well as an odd job man and could turn his hand to anything and liked tinkering about with things.
In his spare time he liked going for a pint down at his local, especially in times gone-by at the Nash (Straits) and the Bay Horse in Ossy. He enjoyed playing darts, watching Manchester United, bird watching and also walking his dog.
John will be very sadly missed by his dear brothers Kenneth, Christopher, Philip, Juliane, Mark and Paul and his dear sister Susan. He was also a dear brother of the late Peter and son of the late Kenneth and Mary.
His funeral service will take place at 3.00pm, on Tuesday 10th July 2018 at Accrington Crematorium.
