Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

THE fam­ily of Dan Bar­low have paid trib­ute to a ‘won­der­ful hus­band and fa­ther who touched the hearts of ev­ery­one that he met’.

Dan grew up around the Moss es­tate and went to Parkroyal Com­mu­nity School be­fore Ryles Park High School.

It was a child­hood ex­pe­ri­ence in hos­pi­tal that in­spired Dan to take up a ca­reer in nurs­ing.

After leav­ing school Dan be­gun his train­ing at Mac­cles­field Hos­pi­tal in the the­atre re­cov­ery depart­ment and later at Leighton Hos­pi­tal as a pain nurse.

Dur­ing a 10 year ca­reer he found his call­ing in the acute pain ser­vice where he helped es­tab­lish a chronic pain ser­vice in the com­mu­nity. At the time of his death he worked at Leighton Hos­pi­tal in a se­nior nurs­ing role.

Out­side of work Dan was keen moun­tain biker who loved the out­doors and a tal­ented mu­si­cian, who would reg­u­larly play his gui­tar for fam­ily and friends.

Speak­ing at his in­quest sis­ter Vic­to­ria Bar­low on be­half of par­ents Jean and Alan and Dan’s widow Katie, said: “Dan touched ev­ery­one that he met. He was the most won­der­ful hus­band and fa­ther. Our fam­ily is find­ing it dif­fi­cult to come to terms with the tragic way he died.

“We will miss him dearly.”
