Tributes paid to ‘dedicated father and loving husband’ killed in motorcycle accident


The wife of a motorcyclist killed near Marston Moretaine has paid tribute to the dedicated father, whose funeral is tomorrow (Wednesday, August 20).

Angela Kemp, from Wixams, said: “Stewart is and always will be a loving husband and dedicated father to his wife and two daughters, aged 7 and 4 years.

“Stewart worked hard and was very proud of his career as an engineer and foster carer.

“Unfortunately his love for motorbikes created this devastating tragedy, but this was no fault of his own.”

She added: “There are no words left to say, my soul mate, best friend, husband and father to our girls will leave a deep hole in mine and my daughters’ hearts forever.

For his short life, there was fulfilment and he was perfect in every way.”

The 34-year-old died following a collision on the C94 road, formerly the A421, while riding his Yamaha R6 motorbike, on Tuesday, August 5, at around 7am. An inquest has been opened and adjourned.

His funeral is being held tomorrow, Wednesday, August 20, at The Crematorium, Norse Road, Bedford, at 3.15pm.
