“There’s no night without the dawn”


Peacefully on Thursday 22nd February at Primrose House Care Home with his family at his side, Les aged 79 years.

The dear dad of Raymond and Gregory, and treasured grandad of Ella and Lucy.

Les was born locally and attended Wheelock School as a boy, upon leaving school he worked for Jennings electrical before joining the Royal Navy . Les’s time in the navy ensured he saw a lot of the world. He served on the HMS Bulwark and did his fair share in the Brig for his unruly behaviour.

At a dance in the Town Hall, he met Doris who was to become his wife and had a son, Raymond. Later in Les’s life, he met Janet and his second son Greg was born.

Les liked riding his bike to keep fit and will be remembered around Crewe on his bike, in a long coat and a bobble hat.

Les’s funeral service will take place on Friday 9th March in Crewe Crematorium Chapel at 9.20am.
