The BWFC Legend - Packy's Funeral

Recommended Posts

Just been told of an old Bolton Wanderers mate sadly passing away. Known him since childhood and will be missed by all those that knew him at matches.

Sad news a proper Wanderer, saw him at Preston earlier this season was really struggling just to walk, when you remember him in his pomp it was sad to see. RIP Packy.

I’ve only known him for a few years but he was an absolute gent and has been a good friend to my other half and her family over the years. Other half once went watching The Orb in Preston with him because nobody else was daft enough :)

He’ll be sadly missed.

Saw twiggy yesterday and was going to ask about him as I hadn't seen him for a bit

He had moved his seat nearer the front to avoid the struggle up the steps

Sad day

Sad news indeed. Last saw him in the Balmoral on a visit a few years ago. He was in good form too.

BWFC to the core.

RIP Packy.

Sad news, knew of him and spoke in passing to him at all sorts of random away games.

RIP, I bet he had some stories.

Great man Paki, enjoyed his words of wisdom on trips.  His taste of music was weird, but a true gentleman, will be joining a fair few Manny Road Northers upstairs sadly.  R.I.P Pal

Looked after me in some of my states when I was younger.

A real gent.

Thoughts are with the G's today.

Paki has been a constant in Wanderers' away support in all the years i've been going - thick & thin .

This season i've chatted with him at a couple of the away games & though he was a bit frail he was always cheerful & good company.

The loss of a real Wanderers' fan & very sad news.

RIP

Anybody knowing Pakis legendary sense of direction will know it might take him a while to get there but it'll be a fair old piss up when he does.

RIP Packy! Travelled up to 'Boro with him and his van load (including Miggy - RIP) for the legendary Gavin McCann victory. Proper good day out. We stopped in Boroughbridge on the way back. Top fella. Did some right old organising for tickets and away travel for so many people.
