Roy Dawson

  • Born: 6 July 1956
  • Died: 9 May 2019

In loving memory of Roy

"There is a light that never goes out" (Morrissey and Marr) Please join us to celebrate the life of Roy at Overdale, West Chapel on Wednesday 29th May 1.30pm. Then afterwards at The Jolly Carter, Little Lever. Family flowers only. Donations kindly accepted for The Bolton Hospice. Roy bore his illness with great dignity throughout. Roy loved music. Northern Soul, The Smiths, Morrissey, Andrea Boccelli, Neil Young...just a few to mention. His love of building kit cars; a Rochdale GT, Marlin, Haldane 100. His last project, which he sadly was unable to complete, was a Marcos GT, something he had aspired to from being a young boy, and seeing one outside a sweet shop. He loved cycling, Malta, Italy, pizza, going on holiday, life... Oh and me, his wife Shirley. Roy was a special loving husband to wife Shirley. A loving brother to Colin, Beryl and twin Neil. A much loved brother-in-law to Margaret, Brian and Pam. A special son-in-law to Marie. Fun loving uncle to Russell & Rose, Guy, Howi, Joanne & family, Heather & Colin, Joanne & John, Anthony & Suzy. A loving great uncle to Jessica, Emily, Ellie, Chloe, Imogen and Abigail. He was an honorary uncle and godfather to many friend's children, Donna, Caroline, Alex, Luna, Robert, Andrew and Chloe. (Apologies if I have missed anyone out by name). A dear friend to many and a special friend to his "car" buddy Dave with whom his last few months were kept normal, with their endless chats about cars and putting the world to rights. Roy will be sadly missed, along with his love, sense of humour and companionship. I am proud to say he was my husband. Thank you to all who supported us in the past year, friends and relatives, you know who you are. With thanks to the Royal Bolton Hospital A & E, D2, D3,The Churchill Unit, The Christie. Urology nurses, Dr Jain and his staff, The Well chemist and staff, The District Nurses and MacMillan Palliative care team. A special thanks to Bolton Hospice who were able to give Roy and myself as normal as possible life in his last few weeks. "This Charming Man" (Morrissey), will be with me always.
