Brian Wolfenden

Brian Wolfenden, of Rishton and formerly of Newchurch Rd, Higher Clough Fold, Rossendale, passed away unexpectedly but peacefully at home on Friday 28th August 2020, aged 77 years.

For the most part of his life Brian worked as a Wagon Driver for Rossendale Borough Council up until taking his retirement after 27 years.

In his spare time and during his retirement he loved going away on holiday to Turkey and on cruises with his late wife Margaret and when younger he also enjoyed a round of golf, but he was probably best known as a familiar face in the local pubs, the Rishton Conservative  Club and The Workman’s, where he greatly enjoyed meeting up for a pint with the lads.

Brian was a dearly loved husband of the late Margaret, a much loved dad of Brian, a treasured grandad of Luke, Gemma and Jack, a dear brother of Tom, brother in law of Audrey and uncle to Graham and Ian.
