The family of a man who died following a collision on the A140 at Stoke Ash have described him as ‘a diamond sparkling with wit, intelligence, talent and determination’.
Lewis Jarrett, 26, from Ipswich, died at Addenbrooke’s Hospital on July 30 following the incident close to the White Horse pub at around 3am on July 27.
Mr Jarrett’s family said he was a special person ‘who touched the lives of so many’.
Their tribute reads: “He was a much loved son of Jenny and David, brother to Liam and special uncle to Kelsie.
“Lewis brought so much happiness to those around him.
“He was a diamond sparkling with wit, intelligence, talent and determination to succeed in everything he did.”
His family said having been educated in Ipswich, Lewis went on to achieve a first class degree at Oxford Brookes University.
“For the past two years Lewis had worked as a Chartered Accountant at Ballams Chartered Accountants where he kept his work colleagues entertained with his random singing,” they said.
“Lewis was a keen sportsman and played football regularly, often organising football matches for friends and colleagues.
“He also played cricket on Sundays for Freston.
“He was a fully certified PADI open water diver and enjoyed diving in the Great Barrier Reef whilst travelling with his good friend Aaron in Australia and Thailand.
“Another highlight for Lewis was when he was a Games Maker at the London Olympics in 2012.
“He was so loved and will continue to be loved by everyone and he will always be in our hearts.
“It was a privilege and an honour to have Lewis in our lives.”
