Family and friends have paid tribute to a young man who died following a collision in Cheshire.
Ryan Watson was originally from Cheadle, but had recently moved to Rode Heath in Cheshire.
He died on Friday, May 6 at the age of just 24.
A former pupil at Cheadle High School and Thomas Alleyne’s High School in Uttoxeter, Ryan worked for Stoke-on-Trent-based charity Headway, which supports people with brain injury.
Ryan’s mum, Lisa Watson, said: “This tragic loss of Ryan suddenly means he leaves behind his family, friends and his much loved three French bull dogs that will forever miss him and love him more than words can say.
“Ryan was the light of all our lives. He was an extremely kind and caring individual who loved his family and friends.
“All his best friends and everyone he met will have wonderful lasting memories of laughter and great times.
“Ryan was the life and soul of everything he did. He was passionate about his job which allowed him to help and care for others.”
Lisa added: “Ryan will forever be in our hearts and never be forgotten.
“We would like to offer our extended thanks to all the emergency services that attended the scene and any kind person that tried to help our angel, Ryan.
“He has taken flight into his next journey we will see you again soon Ryan.”
A group of Ryan’s friends also paid tribute to him, saying: “We miss him dearly and we are honoured to have called him our best friend.
“A friend taken from life too soon is nothing but a tragedy. His death affects everyone who knew and loved him. We will honour his legacy and remember him always.
“A best friend is never truly gone, his spirit will live on through the memories we hold and cherish together.
“With all the love in the world we miss you Ry.
“Your best mates, Aaron, Connor, Rory, Liam, Shane and Sully.”
