A gentleman amongst men. A hard-working, honest man, who was truly devoted to his family. A source of comfort and a smile, always there no matter what.
Always laughing, telling a joke or two – either that or talking about football. Laurel and Hardy and John Wayne were his heroes, although I think my childhood love of ‘The Wizard of Oz’ drove him insane!
You’re going to be missed by so many people; too many to mention. First and foremost, your wife, Granny Betty, daughter Janine, sons Johnny and Brian (dad), as well as all your grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Your daughter-in-law, my mum Marie and extended family this side of the water, in Manchester, will always hold you in a special place in their hearts.
Gone but can never truly be forgotten. Hope when you look down on us all, we can make you as proud of us as we are of you.
Rest In Peace, Granda. I can think of no greater honour than to be your Grandson.
