A FAMILY have paid tribute to a 'selfless, kind and dedicated' man who died following a collision near Lymm.

Robert Eaves died aged 42 last week after his bike collided with a car.

His family said: “Rob was a devoted husband, dad, son, brother and friend.

“He was selfless, kind and dedicated to his family and work.

"His enthusiasm for work was shown by his amazing career, where he was one of the most valued members of every team.

“Rob had always been a family man that loved finding new adventures; one being moving to Switzerland where the family lived a fun-filled life, and making friends from all different nationalities.”

At around 7.30am on Monday, May 25, police were called to reports of a collision involving a car and a bicycle on Dunham Road.

Officers attended and established that a Red Ford Tourneo Connect and a blue bicycle had collided at the junction of Dunham Road, Paddock Lane and Warburton Lane.
