Former Councillor Roy Mellor has passed away

The Town Council has just learned that former Councillor Roy Mellor, who was one of the founder members of Stanley Town Council, has passed away. He was 77.  Roy was born in Buxton in Derbyshire, and moved with his wife Sue to Stanley after retirement so that he could be closer to daughter Jane.  Both Roy and Sue became involved in the local community and local politics and Roy was amongst those who campaigned to create the Town Council. Roy was involved with the St Stephens Centre and was a lifelong Rotarian. Colleagues remember a true gentleman with a brilliant sense of humour who was loved by his family and friends. The Town Council would like to send our condolences to his family.

    I’m so sorry for the loss of Roy, I didn’t know him for a long time as only met him for a short time.
    My thoughts are with all his family at this sad time x

    Roy was my boss in the late 70’s at singhlehurst hydraulics until I left to have my first baby in 1981. He was a lovely man and a smashing boss. I have never forgotten him.
    RIP Roy.
