“Jack” (Gerald) Eaton

Passed away yesterday 4th July at Westcliffe Manor.

One of the towns characters and head of the Eaton family, former proprietor of “June the Florist” one of the towns oldest established family business’s.

A devoted husband to Margaret and father to Judy, Peter and Lisa a truly committed family man, Grandfather to eight Grandchildren and a great friend to all who knew him.

Jack lived and worked in Southport all his life, and with his wife Margaret and son Peter managed to expand the family business “June the Florist” into the biggest independent flower retail business’s in the country with over fourteen stores covering from South Liverpool, Wigan, Preston and of course Southport, Ormskirk and Formby.

Jack’s mother Bessie the founder of the company was a very popular Councillor and Mayoress of Southport and over many years worked very hard to make Southport a better place to live.

Jack’ sister June was also involved in the business for many years and as we all know it is still in the safe hands of the family with Peter’s wife Elizabeth now running the company shortly to reach its one hundredth year !

Jack will be missed by everyone who knew him and I’m sure will always be remembered by his wicked sense of humour and twinkle in his eye.
