Family pays tribute to Lewis Morgan as police reappeal for witnesses to collision

The family of Lewis Morgan, who tragically died following a collision on Friday, December 4, have paid tribute to the 20-year-old.

Lewis is our loving son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin and friend and he will be missed by us all. Words cannot express how devastated we are by his untimely death and the overwhelming feeling of heartache and grief that we now feel.

Lewis was a thoughtful, considerate and helpful young man, who wore his heart on his sleeve. He truly lived life to the full and loved spending quality time with his family, friends and dogs.

Lewis was always the life and soul of every party. We will forever cherish his infectious laughter, witty dance moves and his cheeky smile. Lewis lived for adventure.  He relished spending time outdoors, camping and off-road biking. As a youngster, Lewis was a keen rugby player.

We would like to thank everyone who has rushed to put their arms around us to support us at this difficult time. All of the messages, photos, videos and memories shared of Lewis have been of great comfort and have meant so much to us; we would ask for this to continue in memory of Lewis.

Lewis is well known in and around Carmarthen and will be greatly missed by the many people whose lives he has touched. We wish for Lewis to be remembered for his larger-than-life character and for being our very own firecracker.
