TRib­uTe

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Independent Report -

‘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.”
