Tributes are being paid to a "happy-go-lucky" lollipop man whose died at the age of 84.
Colin Spencer was a much-loved figure at St George's CofE Primary School in Heaviley, Stockport, where he worked for nearly 15 years.
Philip Scott-Shurety, Colin's stepson, said his step-father was beloved at the school and that the children were "heartbroken" when he left.
He said Mr Spencer never did it for the money, "but because he loved it."
Colin leaves behind his partner, Jean Scott, as well as 13 grandchildren who all "adored" him.
Although Colin stepped down from lollipop duties because of concerns about his eyesight and hearing, he remained in the employment of Stockport Council until his death.
A Stockport Council spokesperson said: “We’re very sad to hear that one of our colleagues has passed away. “Our thoughts are with Colin’s family at this difficult time."
