‘I am satisfied the tractor pulled in towards the hedge to allow a vehicle to pass. The vehicle Mr Parker was driving collided with the front of the tractor, which was stationary at the time’
Shortly after Ian Parker died, Robert Parker and his wife Janet, Ian’s mum, wrote a moving tribute on behalf of their family and the family of their son’s partner, Nicola Penfold.
They said: “Our son Ian was widely known and well liked and so loveable. He was a lovely, helpful lad. He had a big heart and always put others first.
“He enjoyed his fun, music, rallying and mixing with friends, but liked to be busy with his recovery and repair business, which he started gradually building up in May (2013).
“Ian will be so greatly missed. He leaves a big hole in our families, which cannot ever be replaced. This is a parent’s worst nightmare, at 29 he was taken from us too soon.
“We all loved him so much and don’t know how we will get through our lives without him now.”
