The family of a 58-year-old man who died after a road traffic collision in Resolven have paid tribute to him.
Peter Williams, was riding his motorcycle when a collision occurred with a Dacia Sandero car on Glynneath Road, Resolven shortly before 10.40am on 29th August. He died on 16th September 2021.
Mr Williams’ daughter, Zara and son, Adam have paid tribute to him: “How do we even begin to explain in words the immeasurable loss and depth of sorrow that we are feeling with the loss of our Dad.
“To say we are devastated just doesn’t seem to be sufficient but it is clear our lives will never be the same.
“We have lost our Dad, but he was a son, brother, grandfather and friend to so many people and his death will be felt right throughout the community.
“He spent over 40 years of his life building up a family joinery business and became a legend in this field. “He became the person everyone went to for help and guidance. He loved fishing and motorcycling, and we find a measure of comfort in knowing he died doing something he loved.
“We know he is gone but we still feel his presence everywhere. His passion for life earnt him the label of ‘Peter Pan’ as he was so young at heart and embraced all that life offered.
“We will miss you Dad.
“As a family can we take this opportunity to thank all the emergency services at the scene and all the staff at the hospital who tried their very best to help him.”
South Wales Police are appealing for witnesses to the collision or anyone with dash-cam footage to contact them online or by emailing SWP101@south-wales.police.uk quoting occurrence 2100304215.
