A man who died in collision on the A12 last month has been described as having “a huge heart and an immeasurable zest for life”.
Tom Clark, who was 26 and from Saffron Walden, died following collision involving one vehicle near Mountnessing shortly after 3.30pm on Thursday 15 June.
In a statement his family said:
“Tom was a joyful and adventurous young man with a huge heart and an immeasurable zest for life.
“The generosity and kindness he extended to everyone he met is evident from the hundreds of personal tributes from around the world posted on social media since his death.
“He reached out to people and showed them friendship and support when everyone else had turned their backs and will always be remembered for his huge hugs and infectious giggle.
“His family and his partner have taken comfort from the outpouring of love and admiration for Tom, but ask that they be given privacy while they try to come to terms with their devastating loss.”
