The devastated family of a 34-year-old motorcyclist, who died in a road traffic collision on Saturday, September 7, have paid tribute to him.
Lewis Marks of Burton Latimer, was riding his red Ducati Multistrada motorcycle on the A509 between Wellingborough and Harrowden when it was in collision with a blue BMW 330D and a grey Ford Focus.
As a result of the crash and despite the best efforts from the emergency services, Lewis sadly died at the scene.
His family have now paid tribute to him in a statement released via Northamptonshire Police:
“Lewis was a wonderful father, a caring fiancé, a loving son and brother, grandson, uncle, nephew, cousin, and godfather. He lived for his family and his children who meant the world to him.
“Providing for his family and his children was always Lewis’ main concern. He really was a family man through and through.
“Lewis was one of those people in life who are not only caring and hardworking but also have a great sense of humour. He was always making people laugh and always had a sparkle in his eye.
“Lewis had a great circle of close friends that thought of him as family, as he was often there helping out.
“Lewis’ other loves in life were his cars and bikes, being a keen rider from the age of 8. The bike community will really miss him as he would do many rides out with them and sadly he was doing this act of kindness that Saturday.
“Since he died, we have had many messages from people telling us how loved he was and how much he will be missed.
“Lewis thought of his partner Tina as his perfect match. They were planning on getting married in August 2020 which was something he was really looking forward to. They had recently had tattoos of each other’s names done and were really looking forward to their future together.
“It is impossible to ever forget someone who gave you so many good things to remember, who was so loved and relied on and needed, and Lewis’ death has left a hole in our lives that will never truly heal.”
