Farewell to Jim
A lone piper leads Jim Bryson's funeral cortege
Committee colleagues Nikki Nye, Eamonn McNamara, Dave Carlisle and Barry Haughey amongst the mourners
Hundreds of mourners joined Jim Brysonís family at his funeral today. The cortege was lead from his home in Deepdale by a lone piper and the service St Albans Chapel, Fulwood Barracks was conducted by the Reverend Andrew Earl CF.
His long-time friend and colleague Major Ross Graham, spoke at the service about Jimís work in the Communications Department including his spell in the Falkland Islands following the conflict there. Jimís cousin John Adams spoke at the crematorium about Jimís childhood and the happy time they spent together including the familyís close friendship with the former PNE Manager Jimmy Milne.
The reception afterwards at the Lonsdale Club was attended by family members and many of Jimís friends from the football community. His friend of many years Eamonn McNamara, explained how Jim had helped so many organisations, The Whitlock League, The Blackpool Tournaments, Preston Referees Society and especially the Lancashire Sunday Football League.
Jim Bryson was a kind and gentle man who made countless friends who had time for everyone, he will be remembered for decades for his work for football and he will be sadly missed by everyone who knew him.
