Sudden death of John Purcell,
who emigrated to London in the 1960sJohn Purcell RIP

 The death occurred suddenly in London on Saturday 21 January of John Purcell, eldest son of the late Michael and Esther Purcell of Coal Market, Kennedy Street, Carlow.

 John was visiting friends in Brentwood, Essex when he died.  He was well known as a carpenter in the Carlow area before emigrating to England with his family in the 1960s to take up a post as resident caretaker at the headquarters of the Provincial Bank of Ireland in Throgmorton Street in the City of London.

 He remained working in the city until his retirement some years ago.  During his time in London, John was a supporter of the Carlow Association and was a regular at many of its functions.

 Over the years, John was a constant visitor to Carlow, where he enjoyed meeting up with family and friends for a drink and a chat.  Following retirement, John lived in Brentwood and, more recently, he moved to Billericay in Essex, where he was living at the time of his death.

 He is mourned by his wife Francis, sons Tony and Leonard, daughters Pauline and Suzanne and grandchildren, brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews and friends.  Johnís funeral will take place in London.
