Paul Earnshaw of Apple Tree Way, and formerly of Acorn Avenue, Oswaldtwistle, passed away peacefully on Saturday 1st February 2020, aged 70 years.

His funeral service will be held at 11.40am, on Wednesday 12th February 2020, at Accrington Crematorium.

In his early years after attending school, Paul went straight into work at the age of 15 as an apprentice toolmaker and over the years, working his way up to becoming Production Director, where he was part of a management buy-out. He then completed his working life at Stonyhurst College as a postal/clerk, up until his retirement in 2016.

In his spare time he was a devoted football supporter and loved watching the game, especially as a season ticket holder of Blackburn Rovers, he also loved music, particularly the 60’s, but most of all Paul favourite past time was spending time with his loving family and took pleasure in going away on holidays abroad with them and also dining out.

Paul was a very popular and well liked man, who made many friends throughout his life and who will be very sadly missed by all who knew him.

He sadly leaves behind his beloved wife Pauline, his much loved daughters Jayne and Suzanne and their partners Alan and Neil, his treasured grandsons Marcus and Nathan and also his much loved dog Rupert.

  2. When we were teenagers Paul and I were the best of friends and we managed to keep in touch over the years. I was extremely saddened and devastated to hear about his passing and his battle with cancer. I am so saddened for Pauline his wife and their daughters Jayne and Suzanne as well as their grandchildren and extended family. Paul was always kind, funny, hardworking and I know a loving devoted husband, father and grandfather. As teenagers we had a lot of fun together and shared holidays at Butlins (twice), Newquay and Ostend in Belgium where we had many laughs, as well as quite a lot of alcoholic beverage, for we were young and enjoying that period of our lives. Careers, growing into adults, marriage and myself moving to Cornwall meant that seeing other on a regular basis wasn’t possible. However we have been and always will be the best of friends. I send my love, best wishes and sincere condolences to Pauline and her family who are in my thoughts and prayers. I will never forget Paul. He will always be remembered as a true friend. Rest in Peace Paul XXX
