It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Roger Barfield on Tuesday 26 July after a short illness. Roger passed away very peacefully with his family at this side. He had been diagnosed with leukaemia just a few days prior to his death. His funeral will be held on Friday 12 August at the Southern Manchester cemetery crematorium. Roger was a kind, gentle man who gave so much of his time and himself to supporting local motor sport clubs at grass roots level and was well known for providing driving instruction for young drivers. He was also a club official at Under 17 and Accrington MSC events. Beneath his quiet exterior Roger was a great driver, popular competitor and most recently won his class in the local non-race/rally championship.
He was a great friend and will be remembered fondly.
