On Thursday 28th February Eddy Weston (71) was tragically killed while crossing a car park in Ormskirk town centre.

He is survived by his loving wife Pat and two sons, Andrew and David. The family would like to express thanks and gratitude to all those who helped Eddy at the end and who have since offered sympathy and support.

Eddy was a volunteer at Martin Mere and an active member of the Ormskirk Street Pastor group, enjoying nothing more than being out on a Friday night helping and engaging with those on a night out and perhaps the ‘worse for wear’.
A memorial service was held by the Street Pastors and Father Boniface Moran on Friday 1st March at the site of the incident, where memories and prayers were shared.
An ecumenical funeral service will take place at St. Anne’s Ormskirk to take into account Eddy’s involvement in Churches Together, an ecumenical group bringing together local churches.
An additional memorial service will take place at Emmanuel Methodist Church. All funeral details will be available from Hunter’s Funeral Directors.
Family flowers only, any donations greatly received on behalf of North West Air Ambulance who attended the incident and a charity Eddy had supported in the past.

Police are continuing to appeal for witnesses to the collision and anyone with any information is urged to contact Lancashire Police on 101.
