Tributes paid to Woolpit crash victim Paul Siely
The family of a man who died after a collision in Woolpit last week have paid tribute to him.
Police were called on Friday, August 9 at about 1.15pm to reports of a collision between a Volvo XC60 car and a Yamaha YZF motorbike on an un-named road, at the junction of Warren Lane, north of Borley Green.
Paul Siely, 54, of Stowmarket, was the motorcyclist involved and died at the scene.
In a statement released through Suffolk Police, his family said: "Paul Siely was born and brought up in Happisburgh, in Norfolk.
"He had many jobs over the years, moving to Suffolk with Harris Foods.
"In later years he found work with Orion Stainless Fabrications in Ipswich who introduced Paul to welding, a skill he excelled in and took great pride in.
"He had a great passion for motorcycle racing, attending meetings at Snetterton, Brands Hatch and Donnington whenever he could.
"He loved all animals, particularly his cats, Charlie and Oscar and his rabbits.
"Paul lived for today, he had a wicked sense of humour and will be greatly missed by all his family, Jane and friends.
"His passing has left an enormous black hole in all their lives."
