Bernard Lea

We are sad to hear of the passing of Bernard Lea, a founder partner of Lea Hough Chartered Surveyors.

Bernard has passed away this week, aged 84, following illness.

Bernard established the firm with Neil Hough in 1983, initially operating out of a 1st floor office on Friargate, Preston. Bernard led the firm in the early years, before retiring from the practice in the mid 1990’s.

He was a Chartered Surveyor and was Preston born and bred. He was a devoted father to his three children, Kate, Tony and Helen. Tony also joined Lea Hough 1988 and was himself a partner for many years. Sadly Tony passed away in January 2019.

Bernard’s funeral will take place at 10.45am on Tuesday 5th March at Our Lady & St Edwards Church in Preston.

Our thoughts and best wishes go out to the Lea family at this sad time.
