"Always smiling always chilled and that part can never be filled.

"Just like you could never say the words, we cannot find the words.

"Love you always and forever, Mum, Dad, Carly, relatives and friends."

Mr Neville's blue Renault Clio was in collision with a white Ford Fiesta on the B1019 Maldon road at Ulting, on the Maldon side of Doe's Corner, at about 7pm on Wednesday.

The 51-year-old woman driver of the Fiesta, who came from Heybridge, was travelling towards Hatfield Peverel, while Mr Neville was driving in the opposite direction.

The woman was taken to Broomfield Hospital, Chelmsford, with fractures.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the crash, which led to road closures for about three-and-a-half hours while emergency services dealt with the aftermath of the collision.

Anyone with information should contact Pc Lance Hutchin, from the Central Road Policing Unit, on 01245 452918.
