Family and friends said a fond farewell to Albert White on Wednesday with the funeral taking place of the lifelong Reds supporter. He passed away on 25th February at the age of 85.
The husband of the late Anne and father to David and Andrew, Albert was grandfather to seven, a brother, uncle and father-in-law.
The funeral service took place at St Mary’s Church, Westfield followed by interment at Salterbeck Cemetry with Albert’s life then celebrated in the Tony Hopper bar at Borough Park.
A keen cyclist in his prime, Albert competed at the very top across Great Britain and Europe, winning many ‘time trials’ events in the process.
His love of football came in the support of hometown club, Workington, and Wolves and he became a popular volunteer at Borough Park, not only on match days but during the week as well when he would undertake many of the jobs that no one else liked doing.
Most will remember Albert as the Golden Goal seller at home matches.
Our condolences go to Albert’s family and friends. A minute of silence will be observed prior to kick-off at next week’s home game v. Trafford.
