Edmond Lee, known as “Eddy” with his wife and two-year-old son
The wife and family of Edmond Lee, known to those he knew as Eddy, have paid tribute to him after he sadly died following a road traffic collision on the M4 on 5 July 2018.
“Eddy was the most deeply loved husband, father, son, brother, uncle, brother-in-law, colleague, sports team member and friend to so many.
“Last Tuesday night Eddy completed his much-loved weekly time trial on the river with Longridge Canoe Club.
“We watched with friends from our paddle boards at a beachy section of the river. “Our little boy made sand castles, before Eddy joined us for a picnic dinner.
“This was our family’s happy place.
“Twelve hours later, the most important person in our lives was catastrophically injured, and that incredible soul gone.
“Support from the medical team and police has been exceptional and we welcome their moves to establish how something so horrific could have happened to Eddy.
“For us as a broken family, I will seek to raise our two-year-old son to be as fun, thoughtful and kind as his father.
“We lived on the river and we loved the river. We have been so fortunate to have had this incredible summer together, and while the pain is currently unbearable, we will continue to love it in Eddy’s memory.”
