Heartbreaking tribute to 'devoted' Skegness dad who died after crash near Spilsby

The family of a motorcyclist from Skegness who tragically died following a crash have released a tribute to the devoted dad.

The 36-year-old sadly died following a collision on the A16 at Partney, near Spilsby, on May 12. His family said Daniel, who was mostly known as Smithy, was a loving and devoted son, brother, partner and dad. He touched the hearts of everyone he knew.

The tribute also said: "He always thought about his family and friends before himself. Daniel would help anyone. He brought us so much happiness in his short life. He gave us four beautiful granddaughters. We will treasure his memories forever. His family was his world.

"He is gone but never forgotten. He has left a hole in all our hearts that can never be filled."

His brother Shan added: To Dan, it still doesn’t seem real that you’re gone and that I won’t get to see you or speak to you again. I’ll never forget the memories we have of the times growing up from the good times to the bad, you helped me in more ways than you know and we always had each other’s backs when we needed it. I’ll never forget you brother and I’ll always do my best to be a good uncle to your girls.

I love you mate from your little big brother Shan.

And his nephews said: “I miss you so much uncle Daniel, I wish you could come back, love Hunter”

“I’ll miss you uncle Daniel, take diesel for a walk in heaven, love Caleb."
