The family of Eric Gowler who was killed following a collision in March on Valentine’s Day have paid tribute to him.
“He would do anything to help anyone and he had a smile that would light up a room,” said his family.
Eric was killed just before 7.30pm on Wisbech Road and involved a car and his motorbike.
Eric, 34, of St Peters Road, March, suffered fatal injuries and died at the scene. The driver of the car was uninjured.
In tribute, Eric’s family said: “Eric was a much-loved son, father, brother and uncle. He was a friend to many and lived life to the full.
“Both he and his son had a passion for anything with an engine.
“He will be greatly missed by all who knew him and we would like to thank all those who helped at the scene, and for all the tributes left for Eric - he had more friends than we knew.”
