The family of a man who died in a collision at the weekend have paid tribute to a “fine young man”.

Kevin Williams, 38, from Leyland, was killed when the MG ZT-T he was driving collided with a tree on Pope Lane, Whitestake, at around 8.25pm on Friday.

He leaves partner, Jade Moss and their six month old daughter Peggy Sue.

Jade said: “Kev was full of life and full of dreams.

“He loved his family and Gerard his dog, but more than anything he loved his daughter.

“He made us laugh he made us mad and now he’s made us cry.”

Kevin’s father, Roger Williams, and his father’s fiancé Edith said:

“When you were born I was the proudest father.

“I watched you grow into a fine young man.

“I lost you for a short time when your mother passed away but found you again with a lovely girl called Jade and now a beautiful granddaughter Peggy Sue.

“But now I have lost you forever but we will be together again one day.”

Kevin’s extended family also left their thoughts with a note attached to a floral tribute at the scene of the accident that read: “Kev, I have no words to explain how I’m feeling right now.

“You will be sadly missed, stay out of trouble up there!

“Your mum can look after you now.

“‘Till we meet again, sleep tight.

“Love always, Aunty Debby, Mark, KT and Olivia.”
