“He loved a good party, a game of cards and a few pints.


“Malc was always busy – he worked very hard all his life and even in his retirement he remained busy and liked to help others.


“He was so popular with young children to the elderly, doing odd jobs and helping in any way he could.

“Everyone felt a warmth to Malc because of his kind nature.


“Malc had hands like shovels and a heart of gold and gave so much love to us all.

“He was the gentle giant.


“We will always remember him in this way.”

Mr Watkinson, who was born in Staveley and lived in the area all his life, worked in a number of jobs including as a HGV driver and in refuse and recycling.
