Death of Warburtons baker who was a ‘shining example’

Duncan Lees, a Warburtons manager for 30 years, has passed away aged 66. The Burnley baker’s family described him as “an unassuming man who was humble about his achievements”.

Lees worked at Warburtons bakery in Burnley for 30 years as a factory manager and general manager, before retiring in 2011. He used his role at the bakery to help the community and sponsor local sports clubs.

His daughter Becky said: “As a person, Duncan was a shining example of how life should be lived – by embracing the things that come for free, such as spending time with family and friends and making a difference to the world around you.”
