The funeral of much-loved Buxton publican Michael McMahon is taking place tomorrow.

Michael, landlord of the Blazing Rag on London Road, was found dead on November 24. He was just 38-years-old.

His funeral will be held at St Mary’s, on Dale Road, tomorrow (Friday) at 11am.

The procession will walk from the Blazing Rag pub, which Michael had run for seven years, to arrive at the church for the service.

The family have requested that only family flowers be brought to the funeral.

Any donations made will be divided between Blythe House, Buxton children’s football teams and the Samaritans, the family added.

Michael’s sister Louise McMahon told the Advertiser last week: “Michael had so much love for this town and it’s clear that the people of Buxton had a lot of love for him too.”
