The family of Robert Gregory, who died in a collision on the A5 in Milton Keynes on Sunday (20/3), has released the following tribute to him:
The statement, from his wife Christina Gregory, said: “Robert Gregory, aged 43, from Little Brickhill, Milton Keynes was tragically killed on the A5 on Sunday 20 March 2011 while out cycling enjoying the sport he loved so much.
“He lived most of his life in and around Milton Keynes and made many friends in his lifetime and will be missed by many. Rob worked as a maintenance engineer with One Stop which he really enjoyed even though he had at times long distances to travel.
“Rob was such a caring person, he was a loving father and doted on his children and was a wonderful husband filling our lives with so much love and laughter.
“Rob loved his cycling and would cycle for miles exploring the county. When he wasn’t cycling he would be making improvements to our home, just last year building a conservatory for our children to play in.
“He was loved and highly thought of by all that knew him always ready to offer a helping hand to those who needed it, and no one loved him more than his family. He will be missed more than anyone will ever know, he was a great father with so much patience he loved nothing more than having his son work alongside of him and was in the process of teaching his son how to ride his bike without stabilisers.
“Rob made a large impression on so many people even those that only knew him for a short time and they have shown such sorrow at our loss. I can’t put into words what a caring man he was and what a great hole he will make in so many people’s lives. Rob’s life that was taken away so cruelly leaves behind his loving wife Christina and his two children Aaron aged five and Zoe, aged two.”
