Tributes have been paid to a ‘thoughtful and selfless’ motorcyclist who died after a collision in Stowmarket.

Gary Hall was riding a red Kawasaki motorbike which was involved in a collision with a blue Vauxhall Astra on the B1113 in the direction of Old Newton at about 4.30pm on Tuesday, April 12.

The 49-year-old, of Sturgeon Way, Stanton, died at the scene.

In a statement issued through Suffolk Police, his family said: “Gary was the most thoughtful son, brother, stepdad, uncle, friend and partner and he certainly touched the life of everyone he met.

“We are all truly blessed to have had him in our lives.

“He lived for his family and friends and always had time for everyone.

“His passions were his motorbike, darts and his love of music.

“He was an ageing rocker and he never failed to make people laugh with his quirky dance moves and never knowing the words to the songs he was singing.

“He was selfless and gave up lots of things to work on our new home of which he will sadly not be able to finish, but I am sure he will be looking down on us.

“His smile lit up any room and the world will truly be a lesser place without him.”

Anyone who witnessed the collision, or either vehicle prior to it, should contact the Serious Collision Investigation Team on 101 quoting reference CAD 275 of April 12.
