“I was very sad to hear of the death of Stan Witkowski, who died suddenly after a heart attack.
Stan represented Walkden South ward on Salford City Council for 17 years. He was the Mayor of Salford from 2004-2005. He took the decision to stand down as a councillor in 2007 due to ill-health.
Stan was a long-time member of the Labour Party. He dedicated himself to serving the local community and his hard work and commitment to local people will be warmly remembered in Walkden and across Salford.
I will miss him and I know he will be greatly missed by his family, friends and the local community.”
The funeral details are as follows:
The service will take place at 12 noon on Friday 16th May at Christ the King RC Church, Barnside Avenue, Walkden.
It will be followed by burial at the Woodlands Cemetery, City Road, Ellenbrook, and later all are welcome back to Walkden Legion on Wilfred Road, Walkden to celebrate Stan’s life.
