Colleagues of an Ely man who died in a collision in Suffolk on Saturday have described him as a ‘respected and dedicated family man’.
David Lister, 47, of Henley Way, was riding a motorcycle when it collided with a car between West Stow Road, Flempton, and the Icknield Way junction, at Lackford, at about 1.30pm.
Mr Lister, a former pupil at Littleport Village College, was pronounced dead at the scene.
The father-of-two was chief design engineer at Ely firm Standen Engineering, a company he rejoined in 2012 having started his career as an apprentice.
He also worked at RJ Herbert Engineering, in Wisbech, and with Anglian Water.
