A memorial from the family of our lovely colleague and most importantly our friend.

During the early morning of Tuesday September 27th, Edward John Scarisbrick, a loving son, brother, husband and father died suddenly in his sleep.

He wasn’t home when he passed as he had been in hospital for support with his mental health for over a month. The cause of death has yet to be confirmed.

Edward was an avid runner and regularly attended the Burscough Racquet and Fitness Centre. He was a helper to the whole community, both in Burscough, and where he worked as a community pharmacist in Newton-Le-Willows for 20 years.

He was a Beaver’s helper in the 45th Ormskirk Methodist group, a Governor at Burscough Village Primary School and reading mentor for many years when his children Alice and Jacob were pupils there.

Edward was a regular contributor to the facebook community forum, having many debates on the local community issues.

We as a family are deeply saddened by this sudden loss but are thankful for the many messages of condolence that we have been sent.

If you would like to pay tribute to our Eddie please donate to the British Heart Foundation or Movember (a charity for men’s mental health).

Many thanks Colin, Andrew, Sam, Alice and Jacob and his loving family xx
