Peter Ginn, 50, who worked at the Royal Mail in Gerrards Cross, died after his silver Suzuki motorcycle collided with a black Vauxhall Astra and a red Ford Fiesta on the A4020 Oxford Road, in New Denham.
The Communication Workers’ Union, which represents workers in the postal and telecoms sector, has paid tribute to Mr Ginn.
Branch secretary Andy Moorey said: “It was very tragic news when we heard that Peter had had a fatal accident on his motorbike.
“Peter was the local Communication Workers’ Union representative for the Gerrards Cross delivery office for a number of years and, on behalf of the South East number five branch, I would like to pass on our sincere condolences to Peter’s family.”
Mr Ginn, who lived in West Drayton, leaves a stepmother and brothers and sisters, who also released a tribute to their relative.
