Dear readers, it’s been an incredibly difficult time recently, having been involved with caring for my good friend of many years, John Wright, who sadly passed away Friday 10/07/20 as a result of his short battle with cancer...
John was an avid transport enthusiast and I’m sure many of you will know him as the face of Pennine motor services in the preservation scene.
John’s funeral was on Wednesday 22/07/20 and was for limited numbers due to the Covid-19 rules. To enable colleagues and friends to pay respects to John, his hearse was parked at Huddersfield railway station (where John was station supervisor for many years) front between 0900-0915 before heading off to the crematorium.
A Black Prince bus, complete with John's initials on the destination and John’s Pennine Dart accompanied the hearse to the crematorium.
During the time myself and a small group of friends cared for John, we received the excellent back up of the Marie Curie team, the care was second to none and I have set up a Just Giving page for donations in lieu of flowers in case anyone would like to show support for those fantastic carers.
Guys, you never know what is around the corner,
best wishes all...
