Colleagues of a motorcyclist killed in a collision earlier this month have paid tribute to the much-loved father-of-one by raising funds for charity in his memory.
Shaun Warren, aged 53 of Newcastle, died on Friday, August 7 when his motorcycle was involved in a collision on Parkhouse Road, Chesterton, Newcastle-under-Lyme.
Friends and colleagues at JCB Heavy Products in Uttoxeter, where Shaun had worked for six years, have paid tribute to the motorcyclist.
Principal Engineer Justin Robertson had known JCB Design Engineer Shaun for more than 27 years and worked with him originally at Newcastle-based Rists, Wires & Cables in Milehouse Lane, Newcastle.
He said: “Shaun was one of my best friends. He came to my wedding and we have been out on many enjoyable nights out.
“He really was a nice guy. Everyone says that when they have lost someone, but it really is true in Shaun’s case; no-one had a bad word to say against him.
“He was a really popular person and he lived for his motorbikes. Everyone is devastated about what has happened.”
In memory of his friend, Justin has set up a fundraising page to raise money for the People’s Dispensary for Sick Animals (PDSA).
In just six days, the appeal has raised more than £2,000, with many contributions from his colleagues at JCB. JCB has also donated £250 to the appeal.
Justin added: “As well as motorbikes, Shaun also loved animals and would do anything to help ones which were sick or injured.”
Anyone wishing to donate to the appeal in Shaun’s memory can do so by going online to www.gofundme.com/f/in-memory-of-shaun-warren-to-help-animals.
