The family of a lorry driver with “a heart of gold” who died following a collision on the A14 in Suffolk have paid tribute to him.
Craig Keeble died after his lorry was in collision with another on the eastbound carriageway at Rougham on Tuesday August 25.
Mr Keeble, aged 48, lived in Colchester. Today, in a statement released by Suffolk police, they spoke of their loss.
“A much-loved son to Betty, brother to Tracy, Jason and Mervyn, partner of Paula, father to five children that he adored and were his world, as well as much-loved uncle to his nieces and nephews,” it said.
“He worked as a haulage driver out of Felixstowe Docks and was loved by all those who knew him, a gentle giant with a big heart and very family orientated. He was always full of life and would help anyone out with anything - he had a heart of gold.
