Henry Hall was one of the two people who died as the result of a crash in Primrose Lane on November 12.

Both victims have today been formally identified by police, as Mr Hall’s family paid tribute to his sense of humour and generous nature.

The 26-years-old, of Hall Farm, Uggeshall, died at the scene of this collision, in which Rowan Draper, 25, of Victoria Road, Oulton Broad, was also killed.

Mr Hall was born at the James Paget Hospital on December 1, 1988. He was educated at Eversley School in Southwold and continued his studies at Woodbridge School.

In a statement, the Hall family said: “He was a popular local man, well known from working at The Geldeston Locks and The Plough at Wangford. He had a wry sense of humour and a very honest and generous nature.

“For a time he played drums with the Vegas Hounds and had a passion for music. He will also be remembered for his colourful sense of dress, especially his jazzy shirts of which he had several.

“Henry will be missed by his parents Philip and Jenny, his younger sister Amy, his partner Samantha, and also by his extended family and many friends.”

Mr Draper studied at Bungay High School and Winchester University, as well as working at Twyfords Beccles, the Quays, Oulton Broad and Poppy Place, Lowestoft.

In November, the family of Rowan Draper issued a tribute, saying: “He was a gregarious character with an irreverent sense of humour, enormous energy and drive, and an unstintingly generous nature.

“In his working life he was a dedicated support worker for adults with learning disabilities and was a talented actor. Rowan was involved in many productions at the Seagull Theatre, Lowestoft, including a memorable role in entertaining Mr Sloane which toured several local theatres.

“Rowan touched the lives of many people and will be missed terribly by his family, friends and colleagues.”

Anyone with information about this collision, who has not already contacted the police, is asked to call the serious collision investigation team on 101 quoting reference CAD 10 of November 12, 2015.
