Rossendale Free Press - - Obituaries -

VOL­UN­TEERS who helped a well-known Val­ley baker who died sud­denly are now able to buy life­sav­ing equip­ment in his mem­ory.

Ryan Cordey died on Sun­day, Novem­ber 4 at his home in Water­foot, after a heart at­tack.

Rossendale Com­mu­nity First Re­spon­ders vol­un­teers did all they could for Ryan and his fam­ily and friends have now raised £1,300 to buy equip­ment for the group.

Ryan’s brother An­thony said: “The re­sponse from ev­ery­one who knew him after Ryan died has been over­whelm­ing.

“We wanted to help the vol­un­teers who tried so hard to save him.”

Re­spon­ders team leader Dawn Tay­lor said: “Thanks to Ryan’s fam­ily and friends for their kind and gen­er­ous do­na­tions to our fund. We will use the money to pur­chase a new de­fib­ril­la­tor for one of our kits.”

Dad-of-two Ryan spent his whole work­ing life in the food in­dus­try in the fam­ily bak­ery busi­ness, Cordey’s, at Water­foot.
