The family of a motorcyclist killed in a crash with a lorry have paid tribute to the “gentle giant”.
Paul Weaver, 59, from Latchford, died on Friday 8 February following a collision on Ditton Road , Widnes.
His family said the world would be a “darker place without him” and paid tribute to the “big kid”.
Paul’s family said: “Whether you knew Paul for four years or 40 years, he grabbed a piece of your heart by being just what he was, a gentle giant who was kind, loving and full of fun.
“He was a bit crazy but that’s what made him unique and it is unbelievable that he has been taken from us so tragically and suddenly.
“The world is now a darker place without him and our family gatherings will not be the same; especially for the little ones who gravitated to Paul because he was just a big kid himself and we all loved him.
“Rest in peace Paul and ride high amongst the stars.”
The crash happened close to water treatment and process chemicals plant Feralco, at around 3.30pm on Friday, February 8.
