kills Southport dad
THE family of
Lee Edmond, who died following an RTC on Sunday, 3 October 2010 in
Southport, have paid tribute to the 35 year old dad of three.
Lee leaves behind his fiancee Heather, 11 year old son Alex, 4 and a
half year old son Brad, 9 week old daughter Jessica, mum Julie, dad
Vin, his dad's wife Chris, sister Sue and brother in law Michael.
Lee, a motorway contractor for Premier Traffic Management, had been
travelling home from a night shift at work when he was involved in a
collision with a HGV at around 7.40am on Meols Cop Road.
A family spokesman said:- "Lee was a lovely man and would go
out of his way to help anybody. He was a gentle giant who would
always cheer you up just by being near him. He had a great sense of
humour, a cheeky grin and was renowned for giving bear hugs. He grew
up in Maghull but had lived in Southport for more than 10 years. He
has had several careers including working as a plumber, builder,
labourer, doorman and mechanic before most recently working for
Premier Traffic Management. He loved cars and adored going to the
gym. Everybody loved Lee and he couldn't walk down the street
without knowing someone. He was devoted to his family and leaves a
massive empty hole that will never be filled."
Freinds have also added that they are devasted with one telling us
that:- "Lee was an amazing gental giant and he will be missed
so much, by so many people."
